  • When You Pray | Bridge Church

Prayer is our lifeline to God. There is no life without prayer. But prayer can be misguided and self centered. Our Lord gives us a pattern for prayer that focuses on God, not ourselves and our desires. ADORATION “Our Father, who is in heaven” ‘Our’ shows we are part of the body of Christ, the community of believers. ‘Father’ emphasizes our continuing relationship with God. This relationship gives us access to Him. He loves and cares for His children. He is wise and able. ‘who is in heaven’ indicates His transcendence, greatness, and glory. He is over all, and providentially caring for each of His children. ‘hallowed be Your name’ is the first petition. God’s name and person is worthy of all honor and adoration. May this begin in our own hearts. We use His name reverently. We honor His name by walking worthy of His calling. We honor our Father’s name by having a character and life that pleases Him. SURRENDER TO GOD’S WILL “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ We desire Him to rule in our life and in our world. We submit our will to Him. We desire His will to be done (Psa. 40:8) in all areas of our life. DEPENDENCE “Give us this day our daily bread.” We depend on God to provide the necessities of life for our physical needs. He gives us life, strength, abilities, opportunities to work, and stable society so we can fulfill our responsibilities. We also need food for our soul from the Word, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit to enable us to live in Christ. FORGIVENESS “Forgive us our debts (sins), and we forgive our debtors (those who have sinned against us). We acknowledge that we have offended God and failed to love and obey Him fully. We come confidently to Him because He has promised to forgive us and cleanse us when we confess (agree with Him) our sins to Him (I John 1:9). We forgive those who have offended us. PROTECTION “Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the Evil One”. The Lord is our shield. He is our protection from Satan. But there are real temptations. We pray He will enable us to recognize these temptations and chose the way of escape (I Cor. 10:13). We pray we will resist Satan so he will flee from us (I Pet. 5:8-9). WORSHIP AND PRAISE “Yours is the kingdom and power and glory forever.” ​We adore the Lord for His rule and authority and majesty which endures forever.

We invite you to check out our offerings from the list to the right and to join us in our worship of our Lord. Adult Bible Study Adult Bible Study (Life groups) will come and go through the year but generally meet together weekly for Christian fellowship, prayer, and Bible study. There are currently several Life Groups available to anyone interested in attending. Please see Pastor John for specific days, times, and topics. In general, there are mid-week Bible studies going on, of course the Sunday School hour is focused on biblical studies, and then our Life Groups also have a Bible Study component. See the bullet for Life Groups for more details about those. The objectives for our Bible studies include: Study Scripture - The main objective of this ministry is to provide a small group setting where the Scriptures can be examined, discussed, and applied to our daily lives--thus building us up to maturity, that we might be made complete in Christ (Colossian 1:28). Build Relationships - Fellowship includes building relationships, being accountable to one another, and hospitality. Christianity is modeled in these groups and each person is a contributor and participant who adds diversity to the body. Many lasting friendships have developed through Bible study groups. Pray Together - At each study, a time is set aside for sharing praises, requests, and needs with one another and then praying for and about them. Sometimes the prayer time (or perhaps the entire study) focuses on praising and thanking the Lord for His mercies. Serve the Body - Ministry is a broad term. As people grow in their relationship to Christ through the study and application of God's Word, a desire to serve others develops. Many serving opportunities are available within Home Bible Studies and a Home Bible Study is also a great place to learn about the ministries at Bridge Community Church. ​ Profitable Bible study involves more than just opening to a chapter and reading what's there. Here are six guidelines to help you make the most of your study of the Bible. 1. Set aside a regular time. Unless you schedule it, you'll ​neglect it. 2. Before you start reading, ask God for help and understanding. 3. Carefully think about what you are reading. The treasures of the Bible seldom lie like pebbles on the surface. To mine the gold, you have to dig. 4. Before you decide what a passage means to you, try to understand what the author was saying to the original readers. 5. Write down at least one truth or principle you can put into practice. 6. Don't get discouraged. Some parts of the Bible are difficult to understand, but there's much that you can understand. And if you apply what you've learned, it will revolutionize your life. Keep these principles in mind and use this method whenever you study God's Word. If you do, you will begin to discover the treasures of the Bible. Children's Church Children's Church is available every sunday. Ages 4 through 11 will accompany their parents into the sanctuary for worship and will be released to Kid’s Church at the start of the teaching time (usually about 10:45 a.m.). NOTE: The kids church program will be taking a break during the summer. It will end on may 31st and begin again on Sep 13th. Other activities will be offered for the younger children through the summer. The nursery will continue to be available. What about Child Security? We take child security seriously. A thorough background investigation has been conducted on every person working with our children. If you have any concerns, please direct them to a greeter in the lobby. We want you and your children to feel safe and secure in our building. ​ Men's Breakfast & Bible Study The Men’s Breakfast takes place on the 1st Saturday of each month here at the church. We start at 8:00 a.m. with a hearty breakfast and time of visiting together. Then, generally around 9:00 a.m., we begin an open ended Bible study and discussion time. This is carefully tailored to avoid being a lecture time and is more a time of listening to each other and seeking to understand what the passage under discussion for that day has to say. We are normally done around 10:00 a.m. This is an informal and friendly time, come as you are. Bring your Bible if you have one, and be prepared to be challenged to apply the Scriptures in practical ways. Nursery Care Our Nursery is available throughout the service and is open to all children ages 0 through 3. Ages 4 through 11 should accompany their parents into the sanctuary for worship time (singing), and will be released to Kid’s Church at the start of the teaching time. Nursery = 0 through Age 3 - We offer a nursery for babies through age 3 for all church wide events. Nursing moms are welcome to use our nursery room to feed your baby. If you need another location, please ask an attendant in the nursery for assistance. ​ What about Child Security? We take child security seriously. A thorough background investigation has been conducted on every person working with your children. If you have any concerns, please direct them to a greeter in the lobby. We want you and your children to feel safe and secure in our building. Sunday School Please Join us at the church every Sunday morning from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m for Adult Sunday School currently being led by Fred Burgdorf and David Bauer. Don't worry about droping in any Sunday - there's no beginning and no end unless the rapture occurs. All are welcome! ​ Women's Fellowship ​Women’s Fellowship – A time when ladies of all ages meet together on the second Saturday of each month, September-June, from 10:00 - 12:00. We start with a brunch-like meal, followed by a devotional speaker, and one of the ladies gives a testimony. It’s a perfect time to get to know one another better. In June and December we have special meetings. June is our Ladies Friendship Tea, from 1:00 - 3:00; and December is Mugs and Muffins, from 10:00 -12:00. Worship Team The Bridge Community Worship Team performs on stage every Sunday morning, singing the opening and closing worship songs. If you would like to either play a musical instrument or sing with the worship teams, you may contact any member of the worship team. Youth Group How is God working in your life? Bridge Youth Group meets Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. at the church. Dinner is provided at 6pm with games, a bible based discussion, and fellowship time. Ages 11-18 welcome. For questions contact David Miller at bridgecommunitychurchyouth@gmail.com ​ THRIVE YOUTH GROUP (AGES 11-18) MEETS EVERY Tuesday at 6:00 P.M.

  • Eternal Life | Bridge Church

    New Page About Us Mission & Vision Church History Pastor John Martin FAQ I'm New Directions Constitution Affirmation of Faith ByLaws The Bible Eternal Life New Page Sunday Sermon Previous Sermons Live Stream Sermon Manuscripts Weekly Bulletin New Page Missions Activities New Page Sunday Services Contact Us Donate Worship Team Application New Page New Page New Page New Page New Page Search Results Eternal Life For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 6:23 GOD LOVES YOU AND CREATED YOU TO HAVE AN ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM God has demonstrated His love for you "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life" John 3:16 "In this love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (satisfaction) for our sins." 1 John 4:10 ​ So, why is it that most people don't experience God's love? ​ BECAUSE GOD IS HOLY AND MAN IS SINFUL "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 2:23 - (Sin is either active rebellion or passive indifference toward God.) "And these will pay the penalty of eternal destruction away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power." II Thessalonians 1:9 "For the wages of sin is death" (separation from God). Romans 6:23 GOD SENT JESUS CHRIST TO DIE ON THE CROSS IN OUR PLACE TO PAY THE PENALTY FOR OUR SINS He Died For Us ​"For Christ also died for sins once and for all, the just for the unjust, in order that He might bring us to God." 1 Peter 3:18 He Rose From The Dead "God furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead." Acts 17:31 ​ Believing in Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. We place our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord as an act of our will. ​ The Bible speaks of this as receiving a gift "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast." ~Ephesians 2:8,9 UnSaved This person has never responded to Christ's offer of eternal life If this person were to die today, he would pay the penalty for his sin His destiny would be eternal separation from God Saved This person has responded to Christ's offer of eternal life. If this person were to die today, Christ has paid for his sins. His destiny would be eternal life with God.
