Newsletter Week of May 22

Newsletter Week of May 22


The youth group is on a two week break prior to starting our summer schedule in June.  MidWeek, our middle school only study, will meet Wednesday evenings 6-7PMThe Couch, our high school only study, will meet immediately after the worship service on Sundays.


Our children’s ministry is going to be restructured to better serve our K-5th grade children.  Effective now, any youth, older than 5th grade, are asked to remain in worship from now on.  Parents, please assist in this restructuring of Sunday school.  Youth group is designed to serve the needs of 6th-12th Graders and we want to better design Sunday school to serve our K-5th Grade friends.


On Sunday, May 28th, at 2:00 p.m., we will have Dessert with the Pastor.  This is an opportunity to explore membership in our church.  If you are not sure you are interested in membership at this time, you are also welcome to attend and just learn more about Faithbridge.

Maybe you need to take out some frustration about Buck leaving us next month.  He just so happens to be in a dunk tank at the Festival of Speed event on Thursday, June 1st located West of the Grand Glaize Bridge.  His time slot is from 5:30-6PM, but be sure to check out the whole event lasting from 4-9PM.  A portion of the proceeds raised at the dunk tank will be given to our youth mission trip fund.  Visit for more information on the event.


Branded: “A New Perspective”

Faithbridge is beginning a new sermon series called Branded: “A New Perspective”.  How should the world view the church?  Unfortunately, we’ve created a brand for the church that Jesus never intended.  But we have the opportunity to give everyone a New Perspective.  Every brand has a shelf life…even church brands.  In this sometimes unsettling 5-part series, Buck tells us how we can return Christianity to the brand Jesus intended.

This Week’s Message: “Letting Go”

The arrival of Jesus signaled an end to the temple model and the beginning of something entirely new.
