4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice | Starts 9.10

God is always communicating to His children. But sometimes things in our life can drown out His voice. Join us in a 10-week study by Mark Virkler on the “4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice”. Starting September 10th, classes will be on Sunday evenings from 5-7pm at the Ministry Center (429 Richmond St.). Buy the L.E.A.R.N. notebook ($4.95 plus shipping/handling) at www.cwgministries.org before the first class. Email Doreen at doreen@bridgesouthbay.com for more info.



The EPIC Takeover Testimony Prep | 9.16 at 10am

EPIC (Experienced People in Christ) is taking over our Wednesday night youth ministry, Echo SB, on October 15th, at 6pm at the Ministry Center (429 Richmond St.). If you’re 55+ and would like to worship and share your testimony with the next generation, signup with Deb Edwards at debedwards8850@yahoo.com, or (310) 502-6929, and mark your calendar to come to the pre-takeover meeting/prep on Saturday, September 16th, at 10am at the Ministry Center. “It’s going to be EPIC!”



National Back to Church Sunday | 9.17

Do you have friends, neighbors, or coworkers that don’t know Jesus, or family that say they do but aren’t a part of the local Body? Grab a Bridge card at the Welcome Center in the hall and invite someone to church on September 17th for National Back to Church Sunday. Church services are a great way to start the conversation about their relationship with God, so offer to take them out to lunch afterward!



Weekend Marriage Encounter | 9.29 - 10.1

Whether you're newlyweds or have been married for decades, we all know that having a marriage that reflects Christ and His Bride (the Church) requires us to be very intentional in strengthening our relationships with our spouses. Join us as we invest in our marriages with a weekend of fun, rest, and growth at The Bridge's Weekend Marriage Encounter. Guest speaker, Robby Booth, will be joining us on Friday and Saturday, September 29th-30th, at the Ministry Center (429 Richmond St.) and finishing the weekend with a final message at our usual 10am Sunday service on October 1st. Cost is $75 per couple.

Support Our Nicaragua Missions Trip!

We’re excited to be sending a team to Nicaragua (August 20th-27th) to bless destitute areas and share the love of Christ. If you’d like to support this trip, our team needs funds for things like airfare, accommodations, transportation, insurance, etc. Any funds left over will be used to further bless the Nicaraguans that our team will be investing their time into. You can give cash or check and write "Nicaragua Trip" on the envelope (specifying a person going on the trip if you’d like to support that specific person). You can also give online at bridgesouthbay.com/donate (write "Nicaragua Trip" in the Comment section and a person going if you’d like).
