BRIDGE CHURCH IS OFF TO A GREAT START
“I want to express to you how amazing Sunday was!” That is how Pastor Ryan began an email describing Bridge Church’s public launch service, held this past Sunday.
230 people attended the service—including the city’s mayor. At least 20 new families were in attendance. Eight families indicated that they want to join a home group, and 27 new children were enrolled into the kids’ program. It is especially exciting that only about 30 of these people were guests from Bethel Church or another CRC Church attending to lend support. That means 200 people, potentially, could make up the nucleus of this new church going forward.
It was a wonderful experience, according to some Bethelites who attended the service. The efforts of Pastor Ryan, the music team, and the other Bridge members were stamped with excellence. (An extra bit of Good News is that Bridge Church has finally signed the lease for the top floor of the Ross Creek building. When they eventually move to that location, they will worship in the midst of a beautiful, panoramic view of the city).
I agree with Pastor Ryan when he writes, “We serve an incredible God who is doing something very special in our city.” Thank you Bethel, for your hard work and generous giving that has made Bridge Church a reality. Only eternity will tell how God is using your love and sacrifice to change lives. --Pastor Tom
