Life At The Bridge 7-24-20

You ever get homesick? It’s the empty feeling you get when you have been separated from the people and places you love for too long. LifeBridge is my church family, it’s a “home” for me and I know that’s true for many of you as well.

I’m a little homesick. A couple traveling from out of state stopped by the church the other day to simply let their little kids run around in the front yard to stretch their legs. I ran out to see them and was disappointed when it wasn’t anyone I knew. I was hoping it was one of our LifeBridge families so I could say, “hi”. It wasn’t, so I told them to scram!!

I’m just kidding about telling them to scram, but I can’t wait to see all of you again soon. It has been TOO LONG! We will start this Sunday with two service times: 9:01 and 11:01am. There are a couple things I want you to be aware of though:
  • The 9:01 service will be a “Masks Required” service. If you are here during that service, you will be expected to keep a face covering on.
  • The 11:01 service will be a “Masks Recommended” service: still important for the wellbeing of our people, but we will be a little more lenient about wearing them at all times especially for those with medical conditions that make wearing a mask more difficult. Please remember that a face covering is not just for you out of interest for your own safety. It is a sacrifice all of us are making out of love and concern for one another and as an added layer of protection for our ability to continue to meet at all. Sacrifice isn’t sacrifice at all  if we simply do something when it is easy or convenient. Let’s all do our part to decrease the risk.

No matter which service you choose, don’t forget to click here to Save Your Seat. You will need to make a reservation for everyone attending, even children. And if you are not ready to return yet, you can continue to catch the service LIVE online at 11:00am on any of our online venues listed below.

Please click here to visit the page on our website with all the info you need about what to expect as we prepare to gather together again for public worship. This page will be updated periodically as more information is available.

Please email us at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
Whether you come to LifeBridge or watch online, remember that we “gather” to worship, to celebrate, to grow and to serve. At times during this COVID interruption, it seems that we may have lost sight of the purpose of being the Church - the gathered people of God. I encourage you to continue to reach out to one another to love, serve and encourage. And remember that we have a mission as the people of God to be a light in this dark world. We look forward to serving and seeing you soon.

Hey Bridge Kids families, Our BK team is so excited to be able to lead and encourage our youngest Lifers in person again. Bridge Kids will be available when we reopen during the 11:01 service. We hope to offer Bridge Kids during both services soon, but we just don’t have the staff team to cover both services right now. If you are not already on a serving team, consider investing your time and talents in these beautiful little lives by joining our team. With our two-service format, you can serve one and attend one. To initiate a conversation about serving, please email [email protected]

Eight O’ Clock Encounter: We have had some great prayer times the last few weeks. We are facing so many challenges these days as people, as a church and as a country. Join with us to seek God together. And if you are craving connection, remember that being connected in prayer is one of the most important ways we can unite. Meet us at the church Saturday mornings at 8am.

It’s been a long time since we were all together and a lot has happened - and a lot is happening at LifeBridge. You may have heard tidbits here and there, but we want to make sure you get the whole scoop. We want to share some important information with our church family and we want to give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Join us on Monday August 3rd or Wednesday August 12 at 6:30pm. Keep your eyes open for more details.
