“This Old House”

Restoring an old house can be fraught with problems.

Show us Your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation.

Psalm 85:7

Often it becomes a “money pit.” Sometimes you have to gut the house down to the studs. Sometimes even to the very foundation!

Our sins make us dilapidated crumbling (even if we don’t know it).

Our restoration must start with prayer and confession.

Often it means our attitudes and habits must be torn down to the studs – or even our very foundation!

May that Foundation be Jesus!

In Him only are we restored! In Him only are we saved! In Him only is our everything!

Come, Lord Jesus!

Women Under 40 LifeGroup!

We are starting up a LifeGroup for women 40 and under!

We are so excited to start this new adventure. Our goal is to cater to the problems and everyday circumstances that young women encounter. We miss you, and we want to provide you with a safe, but fun and informative time of fellowship.

Did you know there are over 100 verses in the Bible about gathering or meeting? God must have thought it important that we do life together. My favorite verse about gathering comes from Hebrews 10:24-25, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as in the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”

I know what you are thinking, “I don’t have time for one more gathering.” Believe me, I felt the same way raising 3 kids of my own. God showed me that, if I put Him first, He would make sure everything else fell into place.

Last year was a rough one, and we probably would not have made it without the hope, love, and mercy of God. We want to be an encouragement throughout your life with your children, spouse, work, unforeseen circumstances, but most importantly we want to encourage your relationship with Jesus.

Won’t you come join us Thursday, July 15th from 6:30-8:00 in the LifeBridge Youth Room?

We are looking forward to some great fellowship with you!

NEW!! Sunday Church for Youth!

We’re stating something NEW at LifeBridge!

This is for youth, grades 6-10, who want another option on Sunday morning to sitting in church with mom and dad.

This group will meet during the same time as BridgeKidz and will meet in the youth room.

For our first series, “The Way I’m Wired,” students will discover how they are wired and how God strengthens them to live the life they were meant to live.

Every teenager’s life is loaded with undeniable evidence of God’s incredible plans for them, but who helps them unpack all those details to discover why they were born? “The Way I’m Wired” is a youth ministry curriculum that prepares you for the privilege of doing just that. The Bible lessons for youth equip you to teach students that God has three distinct calls on their life:

  1. the call of being transformed into Christ-likeness;
  2. the call of thriving in their seasonal roles; and
  3. the “This I Must Do” call to be part of something that is larger than themselves.

Join us in the adventure of uncovering God’s best for a youth’s life with these youth messages on identity. They – and you – will never be the same!

David and the Giant

In this new 4-week preschool curriculum, children will learn about the early life of David, from his anointing by the prophet Samuel, to his service in King Saul’s court, to his battle with the giant that made him famous in Israel!

God was with David every step of the way, and God is with us, too.

In “David and the Giant,” preschoolers will learn that God is with us – no matter what!

“SNACKS!” For Children’s Ministry

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

Psalm 34:8

Kids love snacks! (Ok, so adults do, too!) They taste good. But even with all of their sweet, crunchy, salty, or chewy goodness, nothing compares to the goodness of our God!

Send your kids to BidgeKidz for this exciting Children’s Church on Sunday mornings!

Our lessons will include:

  • POPSICLES: In those hot summer months, nothing satisfies like a cool, refreshing popsicle. Kids will learn that when we get angry, we should turn to God who can help us keep our cool.
    James 1:19-27 — Slow to Become Angry
  • DOUGHNUTS: We love those sweet doughnuts with the trademark hole in the center. Kids will learn that each of us has a hole in our hearts that can only be filled by Jesus.
    John 4:4-26 — Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
  • CHEESE PUFFS: Being puffed-up and full of air is great for Cheese Puffs, but not so great for people. Kids will learn that Jesus wants us to be humble and honest rather than puffed up with ego.
    Luke 20:45-21:4 — The Widow’s Offering
  • FRUIT: If we are wise we won’t just snack on junk food, but from time to time we’ll grab something healthy like fruit. Kids will learn that the healthy and wise people are the ones who build their lives on Jesus.
    Luke 6:46-49 — The Wise and Foolish Builders
  • POPCORN: When you make popcorn on the stove, what starts as a few kernels quickly gets to popping and soon will a huge pot. Kids will learn when we trust God, even small starts can have great big finishes.
    Judges 7:1-23 — Gideon’s Army
  • GOLDFISH CRACKERS: With their wonderful cheesy crunch, it’s no wonder you want to “catch” as many goldfish crackers in your mouth as you can. Kids will learn that Jesus wants us to be fishers of people, telling them about Jesus.
    Luke 5:1-11 — Jesus Calls the First Disciples

Independence Day

We can be very myopic in our view of the world and our culture.

Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

2 Corinthians 6:2b

We tend to not look beyond it and to judge matters according to it.

In fact, often we tend to judge God and His Word in light of culture, politics, or parties instead of the proper way around!

How perverse! How ridiculous! How idolatrous!

On this day when we celebrate the independence of our nation, let us not forget to celebrate the true, eternal, material freedom we have in Jesus!
