Even in a Place Like That

Speaker: Pastor Dan Stockum

Series: Esther: Sovereignty in Silence

Scripture Focus: Esther 1

What are we to think when we don't hear from God or see Him working? What are we to think when a situation looks so bleak that God appears to have abandoned us? As we begin our new series in the book Esther, we will find that even when God is silent, and even when He doesn't appear to have control of events, He is still sovereign and is still working.

Deaconesses and Deacons in Need of Volunteers

Bridges’ Deaconess and Deacon Boards are recruiting volunteers to join in the important mission of hearing the word and doing what it says (James 1:22) along with the combined need for faith and action (James 2:16). Our Deaconesses continually support the Bridges family in ways both seen and behind the scenes, and we hope to grow the Deacon Board to similarly serve and also partner with the Deaconesses on joint projects. Have you been looking for ways to serve with other dedicated people? Whether you’d like to send an encouraging note, visit someone in the hospital, give a ride, or something else that excites you, only sign up when you are available and in areas where you want to contribute. For details, contact Board Chairs Sujana Panthulu ( or Tom Hansen (
