Update from Pastor Darin

Hello Church Family,

It seems like an eternity since we last met together. However, I am grateful for the technology that allows us to still meet. It may not be in person, but we can still spend some time together through various video chat platforms and of course our Sunday services which are being broadcast through National Grassroots Broadcast Network and Facebook.

In the new teaching series we started three weeks ago, we are talking about some of God’s characteristics to help us better understand who He is. I believe this is vital, especially during a time when it seems like the whole world is just falling apart. I assure you that God is 100% in charge and in control. The first week we talked about God’s Sovereignty. This is how God is able to be in charge and control; it’s because He knows everything. Last week we talked about the fact that our God is unchanging. He is the same today as He was the day He said, “Let there be light!” Because of that we know His promises are good and He always fulfills them. This week we will talk about how God is all-powerful. It’s His power that created everything and it’s His power that sustains everything, and it’s His power that will get us through these tough and uncertain times.

This week, I would encourage you to reach out to those you know who do not yet know our Jesus and invite them to watch. This is a great time to do this because there are many people right now who are confused and living with fear… every day. We have the key, we know the Prince of Peace, Jesus. The One who gives us a peace that we can not understand.

If you, or anyone you know has any needs: food, masks, gloves, maybe you or someone you know is having a challenging time being at home. Please, let us know and we will do what we always do… we will do everything we can to help. The Bridge Spanish Springs is a church of action, a church full of people who love Jesus and love to help those who need help.

Finally, thank you for your continued financial support during this time. I am humbled and grateful to see God continue to work through each and every one of us to make sure this ministry can survive to continue God’s work here in Spanish Springs. Your gifts help make a real difference in the lives of real people. There are a few different ways you can give right now. 1. Text “spanishsprings” to 77977.  2. Go to www.thebridgereno.com.
