The Turning of the Tide

Speaker: Pastor Dan Stockum

Series: Esther: Sovereignty in Silence

Scripture Focus: Esther 6-7

Up to this point in the book of Esther, not much has seemed to go right. King Xerxes is often drunk and impulsive; the villain, Haman, has run unopposed; Mordecai was overlooked and unappreciated; and the Israelites are facing extermination. The situation has looked rather bleak. However, in these chapters, we begin to see how God ties all those negatives into something positiveand how He will do the same for us.


Reasons to Believe — May 10

Our next chapter event will be online via Zoom at 7:00pm on Fri., May 10. Dr. Cynthia Cheung, former NASA astrophysicist, will make the case that the Christian worldview is essential to scientific development and its lack is a key reason why science was stillborn in China. Join us on Zoom here.

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).
