This coming Sunday we will be continuing our current Advent sermon series "People Of The Plan." This Sunday we will take a closer look at Mary: ln Luke 1:26-38 we read the story of the angel Gabriel visiting Mary and announcing the amazing role she is to play in the coming of Jesus into the world. In this story we see how God chooses, fulfills, and enable his plan within the world, and we also witness Mary’s humble and willing response to God’s call in her life. Join us as we reflect on this grace filled back-and-forth discussion between Mary and the angel!
The Bridge Community Church is thrilled to announce that Pastor George, along with his wife Kim, have accepted a call for George to serve in a permanent position as pastor at The Bridge! Pastor George has been serving as a part time pastor at The Bridge since September.
Check out the "ABOUT US" section of the website for George's bio!
WELCOME GEORGE AND KIM!!!
This coming Sunday we will be beginning a new sermon series for advent titled "PEOPLE OF THE PLAN."
In Luke 1:5-25, the story of Zechariah and Elizabeth, we see God at work on two stages: He is at work on the cosmic stage, renewing his plan of salvation for the world, and he is at work on a personal level, hearing the prayer of Elizabeth. God is at work all around us accomplishing his plan. Join us this Sunday as we talk about how God is active in the world and in our lives before we may even be aware of it.
Join us this coming Sunday as Pastor George preaches on Luke 1:1-4:
GOD HAS A PLAN: The prologue to Luke’s gospel, and this sermon, is kind of a prologue to the upcoming Advent season. In this passage Luke gives us his reason for writing his gospel clear and simple—God has a plan and he wants to assure us of that. Like Theophilus, we sometimes look at the world around us and wonder where God is, or even if there is a God; but Luke wants to assure us, God has a plan, God is active, and all of this centres around Jesus Christ who has come into the world.
Hope to see you there!
Please join us this Sunday, November 12 as we welcome guest speaker Justin Napier, Chaplain at the Gateway of Hope in Langley!

This week Pastor George will begin a three-week sermon series entitled, “Holy Habits of Life.” We all have a vision in our mind of what we think the 'good life' looks like, but the power of this vision may be stronger than we think, shaping us in ways we don’t even realize. Join us this week as we look at Philippians 1:3-11 and ask the question, “What do you want?”
ALSO, this Monday, October 23, we will be hosting our monthly neighbourhood dinner! Rain or shine, we are going to fire up the barbecues one more time and cook up some delicious chilli dogs! Join us for some good food and fellowship with our nneighbours!
Come join us this Sunday, Oct. 8, as we celebrate Thanksgiving! Our service will include an open time of sharing what we are thankful for, as well as a message from Psalm 116, “Living Our Thanksgiving.”
Join us this week as we begin a new sermon series, “Who is God, Who am I?” This week we are going to look at the very first thing we learn about God in the Bible, that he is a creating God, and if God is a creating God what then does this say about me?
We will also be having a BBQ after the service so please come and join us for a time of worship and community!

In a constantly changing and ultra competitive world, what does it mean to live a calm and content life?
