  • Pre-Register… Due to social distancing regulations, all attendees will need to Pre-Register Each Week for the Sunday Service they wish to attend so that we do not have to turn anyone away at the door if when we reach maximum capacity.
  • Registration… will open each week on Monday and close on Thursday at midnight. We must close registration on Thursday. Once a service has reached capacity on the registration form, that service will close and you will have to choose another time or try again next week.
  • Streaming… We will continue to stream our service at 10:30 am each week on Facebook and YouTube.
  • Nursery & Preschool Opportunities… We are NOT be able to offer Nursery or Preschool opportunities on campus at this time. However, if you do choose to bring your children with you, Ms. Jennifer will have activity packets available at check-in for you to pick-up and take into the service with you. Please also visit the additional tabs here on the Upcoming Events page to find specially produced lesson videos for the little ones and Bridge Kids!
  • Adventure Zone… for kids ages 5K – 5th grade will re-open on Sunday, January 17 during the 10:30 am service only. Limited space available. Registration, social distancing, temperature check and masks will be required to attend.

  • Restrooms… Please use the restroom before you come. Restrooms will be available for emergencies. However, it is our goal to limit restroom use.
  • When the service is over… as much as we would love to visit with you, we are going to have to request you exit so that we have time to sanitize and prepare to check-in the next service.

While these processes may feel very unnatural from how we normally experience services here at The Bridge, it is important that we comply for the comfort and safety of everyone involved! Remember, this is temporary and we do not expect it to last forever!

A Call to Prayer for Our Nation…

Tensions on both sides of the political spectrum have been growing exponentially over the past several years. With yesterday’s aggressive protest in Washington D.C., resulting in a breech of our nation’s capital building, it has become obvious just how broken our country has become. As your Pastor, be it known that I do not condone violence or unlawful behavior by any faction. Rule of law must be respected by all people in order to maintain the integrity of our Republic, as well as our collective safety.

2 Chronicles 7:14 provides us our direction in such turbulent times:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Our collective duty, our collective responsibility as Christ Followers is to embrace this Biblical directive. Let’s first take a moment to ensure that our hearts and spirits are being controlled by God and not human emotion. Let’s then unite in fervent prayer for our country, our elected leaders, and our citizens. It could not be more obvious that our country and culture needs our prayers and our leadership as a people of peace. Let’s be a loving, peaceful presence in our response to yesterday’s sad events.

Finally, let’s live-out our mission, “to be God’s bridge to all people, a span across the gap of where they are now to where God created them to be.”

Leading Ladies Quarterly Seminar Session
Saturday, January 23 @ 9:00 am via Zoom
Zoom link will be provided with Registration.

When you’re living all out for God, your motivations and actions shift. How you carry yourself will be in line with His Word. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you are doing.

In our Leading Lady series, “BOLD”, we are using the word BOLD to build a simple formula to gain insight on what living a bold life looks like and how to apply that formula to every day living.

“Embrace your boldness, BridgeWoman!!

Step into your leadership qualities & your go-getter attitude. You are allowed to be a bold woman and a strong woman of faith at the same time.

Follow God’s leading even if it means rejecting tradition. This culture needs us, now more than ever, to be self -disciplined, use our empowerment and BE the difference this world needs.

You have the ability to identify as a “bold woman” and I encourage you to step into that part of yourself. God can and will use it.

 

II TIMOTHY 1:6-7
“…I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you…For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”

Saturday, January 30 @ 11:00 am here at The Bridge Church

RESOURCES FOR LITTLE ONES & PARENTS

Dear Bridge Parents,

One of the wonderful things about preschoolers is know they have needs and they are not afraid to let you know. That’s a good thing and something we want to use to help our little ones see another need they have – a need we all have – and that is Jesus. Yes, “I need Jesus” is the focus this month. And, we know from experience that the older preschoolers get, the more they will need Jesus.

Week 1: The Four Friends Mark 2:1-12
(My friends need Jesus.)
Week 2: Healing the Deaf Man Mark 7:32-37
(I need to ask Jesus for help.)
Week 3: Healing the Blind Man John 9:1-12
(Everyone needs Jesus.)
Week 4: Calming the Storm Matthew 8:23-27
(I need Jesus when I’m scared.)

RESOURCES FOR BRIDGE KIDS & PARENTS
For Kids Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Hi Parents,

I am so excited that the day has finally come to re-open Adventure Zone. Because of COVID restrictions, we only have room for about 30 kids, so please make sure that you sign up to avoid being turned away and the kids be disappointed. For those of you who stay home, we are still sending out the lesson via YouTube, but nothing beats being there in person for the kids.

I am also excited to introduce our “ Family Table Talk” sheets. This is intended to spark family conversation around the dinner table, or devotion time that focus on spiritual things. A new one will come out each month. Please take advantage of them and let us know how they are working for your family.

Praying for you and your kids.

Blessings to you all!
For His Kids,

“Does it really matter what I say?”

Your greatest weapon—for good or evil—is in your mouth.

Watch Your Mouth, the video series, is based on bestselling author Dr. Tony Evans book by the same name. This compelling resource will help you learn to tame your tongue. With real-life stories and life-changing insights shared through engaging teaching, you’ll learn what the Bible teaches about talking and:

Discover the power of the spoken word to bolster your faith when you’re doubting.
Discern what should or shouldn’t be said so that you honor God with your speech.
Develop the ability to praise God and voice wisdom even in tough circumstances.

Watch Your Mouth Bible Study
Get inspired by Tony’s teaching on the tongue and model with your mouth the character of God. Don’t let your words bring cursing or destruction to yourself and those you love. Instead, let your words minister to and speak life into the world around you.

Hurricane Season Pre-Storm Helps

To assist with hurricane preparations:

 

Hurricane Season Post-Storm Helps

To assist with post hurricane issues:

As Floridians continue the process of digging out from the storm, I want to share with you some tips and resources for Hurricane Irma Recovery.

FEMA:

Resident Assistance: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has added Broward County to the list of counties eligible for individual assistance. That means homeowners with damage that is documented can apply for funding from FEMA. 

  • Register at DisasterAssistance.gov for information and services from the government on the aid that may be available to you, including transitional sheltering assistance.
  • Residents without internet access can use the computers at Broward County libraries to register for FEMA Individual Assistance. 
  • You can also contact FEMA’s Helpline (800) 621-3362 (voice, 711/VRS-Video Relay Service) (TTY: (800) 462-7585).
  • Your local Red Cross chapter can also help you with food, shelter, and personal goods.
  • You can also find assistance through United Way.

 

Insurance:

  • Check with your insurance agent before hiring anyone to work on your property.
  • Make sure you have the right kind of coverage to file a claim related to storm damage.
  • Be sure to take pictures of the damage to your property before cleaning it up.
  • To check on your policy through the National Flood Insurance Program, contact your insurance agent. You can also call 1-800-621-FEMA and select “option 2” learn more and be directed to the right place to file your claim.

 

Scams:

  • Keep any eye for people who may try to be using this unstable time as a way to swindle unsuspecting victims.
  • Con artists asking for up-front payments, offering suspiciously large discounts, or claiming to be government agents are all commonplace after a storm like Irma.
  • Be wary of phone calls from entities claiming to be charities. Real charities do not usually ask for donations over the phone or have names that sound like governmental departments.
  • Do not give your money or personal information out over the phone.
  • If someone is pressuring you with a “limited time offer” chances are it is a scam. Always check out offers with a trusted advisor such as an attorney before agreeing to terms with anyone.

 

Other Important Tips:

  • Touch base with your mortgage lender. Just because your home was damaged does not mean you can skip a payment. However, your mortgage lender might work with you to pause payments given the situation. If you do not know who holds your mortgage, check the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems or call 888-679-6377.

 

  • You also still must pay your credit card bills. If you do not think you will be able to do so, contact your credit card company before the next payment comes due.

 

  • If your home is currently uninhabitable, contact your power company and ask that your service be suspended. This will save you money while you sort out your situation.

 

  • Veterans who need help with shelter or their medications can call 1-800-507-4571 to speak with someone at the VA. Veterans can also check the VA website specifically dedicated to Hurricane Irma for more information.
