How it all started...
Stone Bridge Church was started with a vision of just a few families that had a heart to reach their own community. The idea of the bridge came of how Granger is surrounded by many well-known bridges in the Des Moines area. We wanted to be a bridge to people and their relationship with God, each other and also be a bridge in our community. The idea of the Stone came from 1 Peter 2:7. Jesus is the chief cornerstone of the church. Without Jesus as our foundation, we are nothing. Only Jesus has the power to make things new. In September of 2017, Stone Bridge was launched with that vision. Our first four years we met in the Granger Community Center. In 2021, we outgrew the community center and moved into the Woodward Granger Elementary School.

We love our community!
Here at Stone Bridge, we believe we are to be a bridge to Dallas County and the Woodward Granger School District. We have a strong emphasis on being present in our community. Throughout the year we hold bridge events such as a community Easter Egg Hunt, Spring and Summer Vacation Bible Schools, Back to School supplies, Teacher Appreciation, Christmas gifts for WG students and other outreaches.
Where we are headed...
Our vision is continually bridge the gaps between heaven and humanity. Jesus said in the Lord's prayer, 'Let your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.' Stone Bridge church exists to find ways that we can help bring heaven to earth. We are currently looking for land for purchase and in the next five years have a permanent space for our church. Even with the goal of having a building, we realize that the church is not a building but the people. We will continue to go outside our walls and share the hope of Jesus to those around us.
