Bright Star Church is a community-minded group of people that is united by our faith and defined by our love. One of the big ways we get to show that love to the community is through our local missions. We love giving to our community without hesitation, and without any pretense of wanting something in return. We are here for you, our neighbors and friends throughout the Douglasville community.

If you love helping the community or enjoy meaningful projects and activities, we invite you to serve during any of these great community events. Come help us show a united love for our community!
