Life At The Bridge 3-11-21
Spring is a wonderful time of the year. The days are getting longer, the weather is warming up, the flowers are blooming and the hope that the long winter is over is growing. Although it would be nice to just find a sunny spot and soak it in, we must be careful not to let the opportunities of spring slip away. If we hope to have a harvest in summer and fall, we must make time and effort to plant in the spring.
Before you check out because you are not a farmer and don't plan to put in a garden this year, you need to know that I am not referring to the natural season of spring. This Sunday we will be talking about the life season that comes after the cold, dark winters of life. Spring will come. Sometimes the relief can be so tempting that we just want to enjoy the moment. And we can! But we must also seize the moment. We all know that we are not made for a single day. And I believe what we do in the spring has an impact on summer, autumn and even the next winter season that is sure to come. I hope you can join us as we all prepare for spring - online or in person this Sunday at 9:01 or 11:01am.
If you missed last Sunday's introduction to the series, you can catch it here. If you want to read ahead and familiarize yourself with the scripture for this Sunday, take a few minutes to look up Ecclesiastes 11:4-6, Galatians 6:7-8, II Corinthians 5:7, II Corinthians 9:6-12. Hope you can join us here or online for the conclusion of our Temple Keepers series. We will continue to stream our services live. Scroll down for links to find us online.
Join us this week for NEXT 4.0! This week we will be giving you the tools necessary to share you own personal faith with confidence and boldness,

NEW! The COVID Task Force, which is composed of health care professionals and team leaders, has agreed that we should continue requiring masks at the 9:01am service for those that are health compromised or feel more comfortable being in a masked environment. However, we feel we can change our mask policy for the 11:01am service to “Restaurant Rules” What does this mean at church? Please wear a mask any time you are walking around (walking in/out, to the restroom, checking kids in/out etc). However, when you are seated in the Worship Center you may feel free to take your mask off.
You are NOT required to use the Save Your Seat system, but if you want to be notified in the case of a known exposure, feel free to register through the system here. Our task force will continue to monitor the situation and remove restrictions as appropriate.
BridgeKids is looking for volunteers! If you love kids and you have a passion to serve, we would love to hear from you in the BridgeKids department. Every Sunday we have over 25 kids who learn about God in ways that are meaningful to each age group. We truly believe that serving kids is vital in developing how they see, hear, and get to know God. If you want to be part of a team that loves serving kids reach out to us at [email protected].
Do you have a Middle or High School Student? We would love to have your student and their friends join us on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm. Middle School has prizes for students who bring friends!
Middle School is meeting in The Landing, and High School meets in the sanctuary.

If you are into video games, let's connect! Lifebridge and Pastor Justin have joined with some Water's Edge churches to create a Discord server with channels for all sorts of different games for all sorts of different people. Right now our core group is men 16-30 years old and growing. It's always better to play with people you know, and discord is a great way to interact with people in your community.
