Hi Bridge Family,
I’m happy to announce that I’ve finally gotten around to uploading this past Sunday’s message! Yeah! You can access it on the sermons page here. I am grateful for all the help that went into making our outreach Sunday a great success. It was so nice to feel such powerful and positive energy in the room. Perfect that our outreach began on Pentecost Sunday as well. God’s Spirit poured into His disciples that they might courageously give witness to the power of God in their life, in their community, and in the world. Two thousand years later, nothing has changed…at all. I felt the movement of the Spirit as soon as I walked in the Church this past Sunday. Thank you for your willingness to live and witness to the Spirit poured forth!
By the power of the Holy Spirit, The Bridge is proclaiming Christ to our community. I believe very strongly that the numbers are not what is important. What IS and will always be important is that we are joyful, prayerful, and faithful to Jesus’ own command to proclaim the Gospel to all nations. That is indeed what we did, and what we must continue to do.
Each of us in our own unique way is called to give witness to Christ in The Bridge community. Through music, the Word, prayers, preaching, forgiveness, a spirit of welcoming, generosity, friendliness, faithfulness, giving, good humor, and the like, we share the joy of living in Christ Jesus with each other and with the world. I’m already looking forward to next month’s talk, “Relationships For Christ’s Sake!”
Thank you for all you do, thank you for calling me, thank you for your positive, encouraging word, work, and prayer.
~ Blessings, Pastor Steve
