Life At The Bridge 10-29-20

“Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to heaven, but you are members of God’s very own family, citizens of God’s country, and you, EVERY ONE OF YOU, belong in God’s household with every other Christian. Ephesians 2:19

Jesus promised us He would never leave us alone. One of the ways He fulfills His promise is through FAMILY. God intentionally puts us in families because He knows that belonging is a key to the life He has for us. Join us this Sunday for the LAST message of our We Are Family series - 9:01 and 11:01am

It is time for the generous family of LifeBridge Church to start thinking of the holidays. Operation Christmas Child has been collecting and delivering shoebox gifts—filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys—to children worldwide for more than two decades.  Since 1993 over 178 million shoeboxes have been delivered to children all over the world to show them the love of Jesus.  This is a project that everyone can still be a part of, even with COVID-19 restrictions.

Now is the time for individuals, families, and groups to transform empty shoeboxes into fun gifts.  You can pick up a shoebox in the lobby or transform any shoebox into a vessel of Christmas Joy! Find a step-by-step guide on the How to Pack a Shoebox webpage.

A few good volunteers are needed to help during collection week November 16-23.  There are weekday shifts from 12-2pm and 6-8 pm.  There are weekend shifts also.  Please contact Pat McCarthy if you think you can help.  Training will be provided!  Email at [email protected].
