Church Conversation – Join Us

Pastor Andy will be facilitating a meeting open to all members of Faithbridge on Saturday August 26th from 2-4pm. At this meeting, he will present his findings from the listening sessions and ask for additional guidance and direction as to what our direction and purpose should be as a congregation. Please note- this meeting is not the same as the listening sessions- we will be discussing possible next steps for our congregation. All members are invited to the meeting – including those who have previously attended a listening session. Everyone’s input is important in this process!

Pastor’s Piece

Join us this week for part #3 of our sermon series called Deeper Waters. This week we’ll explore the story of Jesus going to the “other side” of the lake. The other side of the lake was where “those people” lived… the others… the people who were different than the good Jewish people. And people expected Jesus to stay with them and serve them. Time and time again, though, Jesus defied their expectations. Come to church this week as we think about the expectations we have of Jesus and the church, and about the expectations Jesus has of His Church and the lives of His followers.

Blessed to bless,

Pastor Andy
