Modern Day Slavery – Documentary Screening

Have you wondered about what “sex trafficking” really is and entails? Do you believe that it is really an international problem? Or, do you wonder why Pastor Scott has a passion for this ministry?

This issue and screening are not for the faint of heart. They are for Christians who want to share His heart with those whose hearts are broken.

Come and watch one of the best documentaries on this issue and then have some Q&A with Pastor Scott following on Tuesday, December 18, 2018, at 6:30 pm.

More Information here.

Please contact Pastor Scott with any questions, at (713) 965-6761 or SHeitshusen@LifeBridgeSealy.com.

GIVING-Thanks

Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury so there will be ample provisions in my Temple. Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams.
Malachi 3:10 (The Message)

I’m sure y’all have been inundated by charities and groups asking for donations. Even so, we know that often “[we] do not have, because [we] do not ask” or ask with the wrong motivations.

Far be it from me to address you in this way!

Both of the passages above (from Malachi and James) have a “scolding” aspects to them. My appeal here does not.

Rather, I simply want to provide you with the opportunity to respond in thanks to God for all He has done (and continues to do) for you, your family, and for LifeBridge.

Over the past week you may have tried to take inventory of all the Lord has blessed you with. If you are like me, you were unable to actually put into words all of them. There’s just too many.

God’s like that. He is bigger than us. His grace; His forgiveness; His love – all are bigger! Likewise, His provisions exceed our ability to respond!

Even so, we have the privilege to try! We have the privilege to say “thank You, Lord!” but show our thanks through actions, time, and funds. We have the privilege to GIVE-thanks in response to His indescribable and ongoing gifts!

If you would like to respond and, in so doing, help with the ministries at LifeBridge, you may do so by clicking the button below. If you would like to respond in other ways, so be it. No coercing. No berating. No judgement. Just a presented possible opportunity.

In grateful and joyful thanks for each of you,

Scott Heitshusen
Your blessed pastor

Are you paying attention to the coming newborn King Jesus, or are the distractions of the season and culture overshadowing Him? What’s your perspective about Jesus when you hear the “Good News of Great Joy” this season?

This Advent and Christmas we will BEHOLD! the coming of the Christ Child from different perspectives, like Isaiah, Mary, and Joseph. How did they understand God’s plan? How did they view their situations? What did Jesus mean to them?

For our next sermon series we will take a view from different people and groups in the Christmas narrative and see what their unique perspective was. Perhaps their take on this Baby, this “Lamb of God” will change our perspective, too!

Join us!

Let God be Our Guide – Prayer & Planning

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Proverbs 19:21

For the remainder of this year, we will be taking 15 minutes before worship to sit, pray, and seek the Lord’s Will in regard to LifeBridge: why He has us here; how He wants us to fulfill our mission (“Reaching the Lost; Discipling the Saved; and Sharing the Love of Jesus with Everyone”) and serve in our community in their needs and beyond; what area(s) is He calling us to serve and support? For some good passages to meditate/pray upon, try starting with the passages below.

Psalm 143:8

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Proverbs 16:9

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Philippians 1:6

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 4:6

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

In early January, we will have a day of sharing what the Lord has been saying to all of us and lay down His plans for LB’s future. In the meantime, share what the Lord has been sharing in the form below.
