Our church celebrated its 2-year anniversary yesterday! Or was it our birthday? Who knows? If you think you know, let me know. But at any rate, Happy Day! It’s been a great 2 years at The Bridge! I am truly grateful for all that God is doing in and through our church. I’d like to think that we truly are a “different kind of church.” We don’t claim to be better – just different. Our aim, of course, is to honor God, but also to be a church that extends open arms to people who may not be connected with God and a little disenfranchised with traditional church. We try to create an environment where people from all kinds of backgrounds can join together and worship and encourage each other on our spiritual journey. As I consider all the people that have connected with our church, I really believe we are reaching our aim! I am so proud of the community that God is building among us as we ask hard questions of life and faith and seek answers that are not always as “black and white” as we’d like them to be.
Anyway…I’m rambling. Thanks to everyone who helped make our 2-year celebration a success yesterday. I’m sure I’ll forget someone, but here goes: Joanne, Fred, Rochelle, Ben, Abbie, Joy, Courtney, set-up and break down team, our Bridgekidz workers, our greeters, our facilty host – Kids R Kids, our band, our tech and sound guys, Brad for MCing our game, Tim for creating our game, and everyone who chipped in to help clean it all up when all was said and done! THANKS.
