Operation Joy to the World is BridgeWay’s Christmas ministry to families who are experiencing challenging financial situations due to unemployment, underemployment, sickness, etc. Children and families in need are identified through our Benelovence and Children’s departments as well as from church member referrals. There are three ways you can participate.


Shoppers choose ornaments from our Operation Joy tree for each child and purchase the items on the wish list (at their discretion and financial capacity). All gifts must be store-bought, wrapped, and placed in a plastic bag, labeled with the child’s Operation Joy number, and returned to Bridgeway Church no later than December 12th, 2022, at 4:00 PM.


For those who can’t go out to purchase gifts, your financial donation helps us cover the remaining ornaments and put something in the parent’s stockings. You can make Christmas a little happier for these families by clicking this link and choosing Operation Joy from the menu.:



Nominated families will be invited to the December 18th Sunday service, and gifts will be distributed immediately after the service in the lobby. Volunteers will serve the families hot chocolate, apple cider, and cookies
