Bridge Church continues to reach out creatively despite the constraints of COVID-19. On Easter Sunday they had 500 people show up for their outdoor, drive-in service. Pastor Ryan and the church were featured on Global News TV. You can watch the segment at: https://globalnews.ca/news/7738392/easter-alberta-covid-19-restrictions/
This is their fourth COVID drive-in service to date.
The Bridge has also launched a new app called “Bridge Daily.” Everyone who has the app gets a five minute devotional and a guided prayer led by Pastor Ryan. Devotionals are available five days a week.
There are significant benefits that come to a parent church, when they plant a new church. Among them are inspiration and challenge, and Bridge is providing us with both.
Consider that Bridge Church launched under the most unusual and difficult of circumstances yet all indications are that they are growing nonetheless. Bridge has shown us that the pandemic cannot stop the Gospel, and that it need not stop us from proclaiming it. I am reminded of words the Apostle Paul wrote during a time of imprisonment. He said that he was in chains, “but God's word is not chained.” (2 Timothy 2:9)
How is Bridge Church’s example speaking to us? Let’s not let the pandemic stop us from sharing the Gospel. Let’s continue to pray for our personal parish (those people near us with whom with whom we hope to share the Gospel). Let’s be faithful to take the opportunities to share the Good News that the Lord opens up for us.
