Christmas Series Begins

CaLB-EndPage-2It’s difficult to comprehend the bold proclamation of the Gospel writers that, “God became human.” A message of profound love that the Almighty God would step down from his heavenly throne to enter the life of human beings as a human being. And by bodily form taking upon himself and bearing the nature, essence, guilt and suffering of human beings. Join us this Christmas as we celebrate the Christmas story that really is beyond all our understanding: out of love for human beings, God became a human being. Christmas at LifeBridge, Sundays at 9:30 & 11:15 am.

Child Dedications // Dec 13

childdeddecLifeBridge believes children are a gift from God, and we are very excited that you are investigating child dedication. Child dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family.

The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), with an opportunity to express publically your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others.

Our next Child Dedication will be held during our Sunday worship services on Dec 13CLICK HERE to sign up today. For additional information, please email Tara Sanders, tsanders@mylifebridgechurch.com.

NYC & The Hemorrhoid from “HE Double Hockey Sticks”

5429c32b425f183f61bf7316_new-york-city-skylineI just got back from New York City, which now ranks high on my list as one of the most memorable trips I’ve ever had. Along with several of the LifeBridge staff & wives, we went primarily to attend the Hillsong NY Conference. The conference absolutely inspired us all, but what we experienced by being together for six days was even better than expected. Just like camp, a missions trip, or family vacation, six days with anyone and you’re going to get to know one another on a whole different level.

Here’s a few highlights:

  • Navigating the Subway System is a great team building exercise. Requires patience, trust and risk.
  • The 9/11 Memorial Museum & St. Patrick’s Cathedral are Sacred Pilgrimages. Holy moments of reflection.
  • Six days together can turn friends into family. Especially when everyone knows you have to “sit this one out” because you have a hemorrhoid flare up. It hurt like “HE Double Hockey Sticks.”  
  • We witnessed a miracle. At the Conference, thousands of us prayed for Mexico as the largest hurricane on record passed by. “We as government are not supposed to mention faith and God but the only thing I can tell you is that God helped and watched over us so this monster of a hurricane did not hurt us here in Nayarit and in Mexico,”Roberto Sandoval, governor of Nayarit state, told CNN en Español.  
  • Carl Lentz & Judah Smith can flat-out preach. “I got saved again” was how most described it. Holy Spirit Bombs going off everywhere.

There’s so much more I could share, but suffice it to say, I absolutely love the team God has brought together at LifeBridge. What a privilege to serve with such legit friends family.
