Be the Church

The Bridge Church, As most of you know this Sunday is Be the Church Sunday. I'm excited about this opportunity both for myself and family and for you, my church family.  I've had countless conversations with different one's of you expressing your desire to do something.  Some of you felt a desire to start cleaning up a park in a neighborhood that no body seems to care about, except the children that use it.  Others […]
