Paths Straight

Speaker: Austin Ward

Series: This is My Story

Scripture Focus: Proverbs 3:1-12

This summer, we’re hearing from our elders and various staff about how God has worked in their lives in similar ways to how He worked in the lives of people throughout biblical history. This week, we'll hear from Austin Ward, one of our elders, about how God weaved the concept of trusting in Him through many different seasons of Austin's life.

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 (
