Why Bridgeway Is Starting A Blog?
April 14, 2016
We realize that at times the important information, details and stories of an organization—especially at a church— can get lost in the noise and business of life and activities. Emails get lost, announcements missed and conversations and stories get forgotten. We wanted to create a space online that people could go to find the information, inspiration and insight they needed to grow and engage with their church’s mission, direction and vision. A place where they could celebrate changed lives while pursing life change for themselves.
Through this blog, it is our goal to provide consistent communication about what God is doing in the life of our church, and what God wants to do in the life of our people.
So, how exactly do we plan on doing that? I’m so glad you asked:) Our plan is post something new and fresh at least once a month, hopefully more. Don’t worry, it won’t be just random stuff. No matter who the author is, it will bring one of three things.
We stated earlier, our goal is to provide consistent communication, especially it comes to the direction, mission and vision of our church. It might be an update in regards to our current lead pastor search, a snapshot of our financial situation, or a behind the scenes look into a new direction or ministry endeavor we are starting. Not matter the specific content, know that this can be a place where can find the relevant information you need when it comes to “what’s happening with…?...” at Bridgeway.
Our mission is changing live through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The best way to see that we are accomplishing that mission is through telling stories of life change. It might be a video or a story that you will actually have to read…I know…the insanity:) But in either case, we want you to hear about the lives that are being changed at your church. Whether it is a story of how a regular attender’s life has been changed through simply serving others or a story of a new family that has found a home and peace with God at Bridgeway. Every story matters, and we want you to join us in celebrating them.
Life change is not a destination. It is a process. Whether you are new in your faith, or a follower of Christ for more than 10 years…we all need some practical help and advice from time to time. Advice on how to reach out our new neighbors or co-worker. Tips on how to deal with our sweet little girl who is now a…teenager! Help on how to just follow Jesus in the everyday stuff of life. Life can be hard, and sometimes we just need some guidance and answers. Our hope is that you can find what you need when you need here on our new blog.
So, in a nutshell, that is basically why we have decided to begin this blog. We hope that it is something you will find useful and will want to even share the posts with your friends and family. Make sure to check back next week for a long awaited update in regards to our lead pastor search.
Also, make sure to mark your calendars for Sunday, April 24, as we host our next Core Gathering. Come and find out what’s in store for us a church this summer and fall and get a chance to ask questions about our current direction and vision as we move forward in 2016. It starts at 6:00pm and child care is provided.
