God Starts Where You Are

Speaker: Pastor Dan Stockum

Series: Esther: Sovereignty in Silence

Scripture Focus: Esther 2:1-18

We might believe that God only works with perfect people living perfect lives–or at least pretty good people, living pretty good lives. But the God of the Bible shows us time and time again He is willing to begin a journey with us starting wherever we are. This week, we encounter the woman who becomes Queen and see that she, like us, doesn’t begin her journey with God fully formed.

Help Feed Dinner to Local Homeless

Join MUCH Hope as they serve local homeless at Sunnyvale Homefirst shelter by providing monthly dinners. Guest numbers at the shelter have increased greatly to 150 people, so lots of help is needed whether it's for 30 minutes or 2 hours! Volunteer to drop off supplies at Bridges, or help cook in the Bridges kitchen on a designated Sunday. For questions, contact sujana.panthulu@gmail.com.


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 (sujana.panthulu@gmail.com) or Tom Hansen (twhansen@yahoo.com).
