Our Bridges high schoolers are on day 3 of Ponderosa Camp at Hume Lake! Remember to pray for these students as they dive into the book of Matthew and focus on the person of Jesus. Pray that their relationships with Christ will grow stronger and bolder, and that they will build lasting friendships that will continue to spur on their growth when they return home.

THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE

The Veil is Taken Away

Speaker: Al Kruger

Series: This is My Story

Scripture Focus: 2 Corinthians 3:7-18 & 4:3-7

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 Al Kruger, one of our church elders, about how God used pivotal circumstances and providential relationships throughout his life to bring Al to the point of faith in Jesus.

NEWS AND EVENTS

Reasons to Believe — June 14

Our next Reasons to Believe chapter event will be online via Zoom at 7:00pm this Fri., June 14. RTB Fellow Dr. Joseph Miller will make the case that the current fad that each of us is entitled to “My Truth” is flawed and inconsistent with the Christian Worldview. Click here to access the Zoom link.

Annual Elder Search

It's that time of year again when our Bridges elders seek to discern God's will for new church leaders. Currently we have 7 men who will be continuing in their role as elders for the upcoming year. Our constitution allows for up to 12, so we're asking for nominations from our Bridges family. If you have someone in mind who you'd like to see considered, please email Austin Ward (austin@wardsrus.net) or Al Kruger (al@bridges.church).

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).
