Welcome Phil!

Hello Church Family and Friends,

We are SO excited at the Bridge.  Pastor Phil Burdoin officially joined us on September 1st and is already hard at work helping us think through how to strengthen our ministries in so many ways.  He is especially hard at work on expanding our adult small groups-you will be hearing more.  You can email Phil at phil@thebridgereno.com to welcome him to our team.  Please pray for Phil as he steps into this most important role at the Bridge.

We look forward to worshiping with you again this Sunday as we continue in our series, Praying with Paul.

Financial Update: August 31, 2020

 Monthly Need: $36,000      Income $43,794       Expenses $40,419

Yeat to date:  Income: $350,785         Expenses: $348,442

One other note about our finances, the Board voted to change our budgeted needs from the $36,000.00 that we were seeking to follow during the summer, to $41,000.00 as we head into the fall. There are two reasons for this: First, some bills that were deferred are now back as part of our monthly budget, and second, we increased the budget for ministry needs that had been cut at the beginning of the pandemic.

I know these are still challenging times for all of us.  I encourage you to be praying for the leaders of our country, our state, our local community, and each other.  Let the Prayers of Paul guide you as you pray.  God is still in charge, still at work, and calling all of us to reach out in love to help and serve each other. Again, please let us know if you become aware of any needs that we can seek to help meet.

Please remember these words of Paul: Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9).

Love you all and can’t wait to worship with you on Sunday.  See you then.

Pastor Bill
