We got off to a great start in our Bridge Beyond campaign this past Sunday, with $70,000 being pledged to our missions efforts domestically and internationally! Thank you to those who have already made commitments that will help us share the gospel in different parts of the world. This is a very promising beginning.
Many were out of town this past weekend with the school holiday and other events. If you have not yet completed your Bridge Beyond commitment card, let me urge you to do so this week. You can bring the card and put it in the offering basket, or you can send it into the church office in the envelope provided in the mail last week. You can even give online or use our app to set up recurring payments. You can select if you would like the funds to go towards regular tithes/offerings or to the Bridge Beyond campaign for missions. Click here to learn more. In order to reach our goal, we need the participation of every member at BridgeWay! Remember that you can make a one-time gift or you can choose to spread out your gift over the course of the next year. Some choose to give in weekly or monthly or quarterly increments. However you choose to give, your generosity ensures that people who otherwise would never hear the good news will have the opportunity to learn about Christ.
Our profound thanks to Dave Tillman and Brian Collins and our entire missions team for their leadership in making this effort possible. BridgeWay is blessed to have a cadre of volunteers who carefully pray over and plan our missions initiatives. You can be confident that this group will responsibly steward any funds that you contribute. Because of their leadership, BridgeWay is blessed to participate in remarkable missions opportunities around the globe.
In Philippians 1:6, Paul said, “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Like Paul, I am confident that the God who began a good work in you last week on Missions Commitment Sunday, will bring it to completion! Praise God for his incredible provision and prompting!
