FRIDAY NIGHT SMALL GROUPS & POTLUCK!

FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE: FOLLOW HIM....NOW WHAT?

This Friday night, our speaker will challenge us with ways we can incorporate Jesus into our daily lives. Join us for a time of intimate worship, interactive study of God's Word and an enjoyable time of food and fellowship. We meet in the Jr. High Room at 7:30pm.

We will be ending our Bible Study series called, "Walk His Way" based on Isaiah 30:21. The message will allow us to discover where we stand with Jesus. Are we truly disciples of Him, or merely converts? We will further explore the cost of following Jesus. 

If you're looking to be encouraged and challenged, join us as we study His Word, deepen our prayer lives and declare His praises with songs of worship. We will also break into small groups to discuss what God is showing us, and how we can best apply the message. 

POTLUCK!
Please bring a dish to share as we will have a potluck at the end of Friday's meeting. We will all have an opportunity to hang out, catch up and get to know one another! The food theme is MEXICAN FOOD, so bring your favorite tacos, tamales, salsa or dessert to share.

Bridge Retreat Reunion: Water Baptisms

We gathered at Mother's Beach in Long Beach for a lovely reunion. It has been a few weeks since our Big Bear Lake retreat and it was nice to see lots of friends again. Additionally, a few of our friends desired to be baptized and publicly proclaim their decisions for Christ. Here are some pictures from Josiah! 







SPECIAL FRIDAY EVENT 4/17!

Join us this Friday night as we have a special event! 

There will be training exercises and helpful tips given that will prepare you for evangelizing (sharing about Jesus). 

This is an educational training opportunity that will equip you in sharing the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST. It's always helpful for us to exercise our faith in the ONE who saves, gives hope and provides new life. 

Invite a friend out! We can't wait to see you Friday. 

*There will be an option to go out into the community to evangelize after the training portion. 

SPOKEN WORD "THE WORD" by Isaac Wimberley


Written by Isaac Wimberley


If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my brain has not yet reached a point
Where it could form a thought
That could adequately describe the greatness of my God

And my lungs have not yet developed the ability
To release a breath with enough agility
To breathe out the greatness of His love

And my voice, my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits
That it’s hard to even send a praise up

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

My God

His grace is remarkable
Mercies are innumerable
Strength is impenetrable

He is honorable, accountable, and favorable
Unsearchable yet knowable
Indefinable yet approachable
Indescribable yet personal

He is beyond comprehension
Further than imagination
Constant through generations
King of every nation

But
If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my words are few
And to try and capture the one TRUE God
Using my vocabulary will never do

But I use my words as an expression
An expression of worship to a Savior
A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise

So I use words

My heart extols the Lord
Blesses His name forever
He has won my heart, captured my mind
And has bound them both together

He has defeated me in my rebellion
Conquered me in my sin
He has welcomed me into His presence
Completely invited me in

He has made Himself the object of my sight
Flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night

But
If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

But what I do have…Is Good News
For my God knew that man-made words would never do
For words are just tools that we use
To point to the Truth
So He sent his son Jesus Christ as THE WORD
Living proof

He is the image of the invisible God
The firstborn of all creation
For by Him all things were created
Giving nothingness formation

And by His word He sustains, in the power of His name
For He is before all things and over all things He reigns
HOLY IS HIS NAME!!

Praise Him for His life
The way He persevered in strife
The humble Son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice

Praise Him for His death
That He willingly stood in our place
That He lovingly endured the grave
That He battled our enemy
And on the third day rose in victory

Praise Him because He rose!!
Hallelujah He rose!!
He is everything that was promised

Praise Him as the risen King
Lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us and we will finally be
United with our Savior for eternity

So it’s not just words that I proclaim
For my words point to the WORD
And the WORD has a name
Hope has a name
Joy as a name
Peace has a name
Love has a name
And that name is Jesus Christ
Praise His name FOREVER!
