Anointing with Oil

On Sunday, February 9, during worship, we will have a time when those who would like to be anointed with oil may come up, be prayed over, and anointed.

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

Swans Are Alaska Bound!

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.

Blessings,

Caleb & Sofia Swan

SEDER, 2019

On Thursday, April 18, at 7:00 PM in the sanctuary, LifeBridge will celebrate a Seder Meal. (“Seder” means “order.”)

NOTE: Due to the great amount of preparations needed for this event, we need a good tally of how many people will be coming. As such, there is a sign-up sheet in the sanctuary and it is imperative to sign-up and let us know how many are coming (adults and children).

You will be blessed in your coming.

“PASSION” – A New Sermon Series

“He will swallow up death forever! The Sovereign LORD will wipe away all tears.

Isaiah 25:8a

This Lenten Season (which begins on Ash Wednesday on March 6, and culminates on Easter Sunday), we will embark on a new journey focused on the PASSION of Jesus through His suffering, life, death, and resurrection. Our theme verse is from Isaiah 25:8a: “He will swallow up death forever! The Sovereign LORD will wipe away all tears.”

We will journey through this passion by primarily going through Matthew, chapters 26 and 27, covering such aspects as “The Lord’s Supper,” “Prayers in Gethsemane,” “Denial,” “Hopelessness,” “Choosing Murderers,” and “Mocking.”

Many people don’t care for Lent. It seems dark and depressing. It is a more somber time when we put a lot of emphasis on our sins, on Jesus’ suffering, and on repentance.

Certainly, those are not “happy” areas. But, they are necessary areas and, when sought and given time and focus, they can be areas of extreme growth in faith and closeness to God.

Personally, Lent is one of my favorite times of the year. It allows me to examine and separate more from myself, lay myself bare before the Lord in humility and contrition, and behold His immense love and mercy. It’s a time for me to explore the utter depth of my depravity and sin, but even more deep His love and grace for me. It allows me to experience the highest high of the resurrection because I’ve been to the lowest low of my sin and His sacrifice! It allows me to participate, as much as humanly possible, the full breath of the immense passion and love of Jesus!

How awesome is that?!

I encourage you to come and experience the PASSION and love of Jesus with us at LifeBridge. You will be blessed!


This sermon series begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6. More information is here.
