Happy Birthday BridgePointe! We have hit an important milestone together – this week we celebrate our 4th birthday.
This anniversary is special because it marks our growth from a newly planted church supported by others to a rooted church standing on our own for the first time. This mile marker has always been in view for BridgePointe. When we were first planted by Restoration House Ministries, we were almost entirely dependent on the financial partnership of individuals and churches across the country. Since then, we have weaned from their support and increased our own financial responsibility. Through faithful generosity and wise stewardship, BridgePointe has become financially independent. Praise God that His work through BridgePointe is established and will continue to grow!
We have spent the last six weeks learning what it takes to preserve the beauty and purpose of God’s church in a series called "Made to Last." In Sunday's message "Finish the Race" we discovered that in order to be a church that lasts we must finish the race together. I encourage you to watch the video above and listen to Sunday's message to celebrate how far we've come and to continue running with us to the finish.
Thank you, BridgePointe, for running this race with commitment and endurance. Thank you for not sitting on the sidelines, for partnering with us through generosity, for inviting others to join us, for strengthening each other along the way, and for keeping your eyes on Jesus. Let's keep running to finish the race, together!
"Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus." - Hebrews 12:1-2
