Oxygen: Youth Ministry

At the Bridge, we are training up and investing in the next generation of people who will love God, love others, and make a difference. Through Oxygen, middle school and high school students engage in an exciting experience that helps them cultivate their individual relationship with God. 


Upcoming Events


Parents, Stay Connected!

We communicate with our parents most frequently through the app Remind, the same tools most schools in our area use to communicate with parents! Join our Remind group to stay in the know on upcoming events and happenings in Oxygen!


Why Oxygen?

Quite simply, we can’t live without it! Like Oxygen, we need Christ to live. When we unite with Christ, we become a life-giving force. Together, we can give life to entire communities!

Give Christ. Give life.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to train up and invest in the next generation of Christ-followers who will love God, love others and make a difference.


Our Vision

Our vision is to be an inspiring youth ministry that unites youth with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and unites youth with one another to build up His kingdom.

  • We envision youth across the Silver Spring area becoming faithful Christ-followers.

  • We envision youth serving our community and our world together in the name of Jesus Christ.

  • We envision our youth being surrounded by supportive and encouraging adults who will model for them what it means to love God, love others, and make a difference.

  • We envision creative and inspiring youth events that help youth build healthy relationships and engage with God in new, fun, and meaningful ways.

How We Do Ministry


Oxygen Youth Nights

The youth ministry gathers for a fun-filled youth night on the 2nd Friday of the month! We have games, music, special activities, free food, and a relevant message to help youth connect the Scriptures to their lives.

Youth Nights are typically held at the Restore Church Living Room, located at 8241 Georgia Ave., Suite 125, Silver Spring, MD. The suite is down the stairs near MIX Bar and Grille.


Oxygen Circles

Middle school and high school small groups meet separately during the week to spend time learning the truths of the Bible and building strong relationships with youth leaders and peers who will help them take their relationship with God deeper. 

Middle School Circles: Tuesdays @ 7pm
High School Circles:
Thursdays @ 7pm
