We have some bittersweet news to share: Juanita Moore has moved with her daughter Carolyn and four grandchildren to Norfolk, Virginia. While she regrets the short timeline the move necessitated, Juanita is excited to move with her family and for the blessing of new opportunities that the move provides them. A consistent smile behind the cafe counter, a loud laugher and big hugger, a much loved member of the staff and a steady presence for so many in the church, Juanita will be missed by many at BridgePointe.
BridgePointe sent 11 high school students and 4 adult leaders to work with Restoration House Ministries in Manchester, New Hampshire the last week in June. At BridgePointe we believe students can make a difference today as they follow Jesus. Not only are they the leaders of the future; they are the leaders of today. We are so proud to see our students serve like Jesus and show people the love of Jesus.
This July, we are having a series of “Sunday Funday” Dress Up Days as a way to focus on joy and prayer. Every Sunday in July is a Dress Up Day, themed with a different way for you to come dressed up to BP. Then, we are inviting you and your family to pray for a topic that relates to the Dress Up Day for the rest of the week.
On June 23rd, we are having an “Up Sunday.” This means we are moving all kids in grade school to their next grade. For many kids, that only means they are another grade older and cooler. But for Kindergarteners and 5th graders, June 23rd will present them with a lot of change. Find out how you can help your kids know what to expect and navigate change when it happens.
Today BridgePointe is assembling at Bristol Town Beach to celebrate baptisms. These baptisms are an outward expression of surrender and faith in the God that’s been pursuing them and restoring them through Jesus. Here are the stories of the people choosing to be baptized today. Read them and praise God with us for His work in each life. Join us in praying that these baptisms are just the starting point for each of these people.
More stories and photos will be added to this post.
During our Sunday services, we announced that the Pezolds are moving home to Indiana and Josh Pezold will be leaving BridgePointe’s staff. Josh was one of the original pastors who started BridgePointe back in 2013. He and Katie moved here with Jared & Rachel Cowgur and Carson & Angie Cheatham. We are so grateful for their contribution over the years and, while we will certainly miss them, we wish them God’s blessing on their next chapter in ministry.
