The position for Youth Leader is open and available for fulfillment.
Following the departure of our previous leader, Caleb Swan, Ryan Pacher and others have graciously and awesomely stepped up to fill the void and ensure continuity of the program.
Ryan is in his last year of law school and due to his time and other commitments, is no longer able to continue in this position. The other volunteer leaders are also not able to take on this added position and responsibility at this time.
You’ve heard the news: the Swans are heading to Alaska, and we want to send them off right!
After worship on Sunday, August 11, we are having a catered luncheon to thank the Lord for the Swans and send them off with love.
[NOTE: RSVP for the meal is now closed.]
Also, we invite you to bring a “love gift” that day in the form of a card, note, and/or financial gift (given to them directly, not to LifeBridge) so they can take our affirmations with them to their new home and ministry.
If you missed the original letter, you can read it below.
Please read the note below from our beloved Caleb & Sofia Swan.
Dear LifeBridge Family,
It is with both tears and joy that we write to inform you that God is calling us away from our LifeBridge family and is moving us to serve Him in Anchorage, Alaska. God has called Caleb into full time ministry to serve and lead the youth at ChangePoint Alaska.
Although this is hard for both us and LifeBridge, we know that we need to follow wherever God is leading us. We thank all of you for accepting us with love into the LifeBridge family and always supporting the ministries we led. God has done amazing things through LifeBridge and we are so thankful for getting to be a part of it. We know that God is going to continue to bless LifeBridge and its ministries and we are excited to see His plans through all of this.
Our last day with you will be Sunday, August 11th. We hope to see you then to say our goodbyes. Please keep us and LifeBridge in your prayers through this transition as we pursue what the Lord has for us.
