50 Years!

Written by Tyson Herald on . Posted in WBC Blog

Collage3This past weekend West Bridge celebrated 50 years together! On Saturday night we had an event in the auditorium to look back at God’s faithfulness to our church over the past 50 years. (click here for a photo gallery)

Sunday morning we gathered together to worship and continue to thank God for all He’s done. Former Senior Pastor Ron McDugle gave an inspiring message that you can listen to here.

In my opinion, there are two things that make West Bridge special. God’s grace and the faithfulness of His people. For over 50 years people have sacrificially, and consistently played their part in the body of Christ here in Danville.

Paul the apostle often thanked the believers he was writing to in his letters that make up part of the New Testament. He recounts their love and faithfulness and so we want to say thank you to you for the part you’ve played over these past 50 years.

In his letter to the Thessalonians he writes,  “We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Seems like a fitting verse to sum up so many of the people who have served and still serve here at West Bridge!

Faith, hope, and love have carried us for over 50 years and we can’t wait to see what’s next!

We need you!

This past week I tore my soleus muscle. Up until a few days ago I didn’t even know I had a soleus muscle. I sure do now though.

Since tearing this muscle it’s become painfully clear to me that I need it. Working correctly, it stabilizes me as I walk and helps make sure my toes do what they need to. Thankfully, for most of my life I’ve been blessed with great health. This whole experience has got me thinking a lot about the church though. 

In 1 Cor. 12 Paul talks about how the church is made of different parts just like our bodies. Some people get to be a hand, or a foot,  or an eye etc…. He goes on to say in vs. 20 thru the end of the chapter how the body needs each part and the parts that seem to be weaker are indispensable. I can tell you quite definitively today that, we need you! Last week I wasn’t aware of my soleus muscle but there it was doing what it was supposed to, serving a greater purpose, playing it’s role well. 

I’m not sure what part you play, but if you consider yourself a Christian you are part of the body and we need you! Trust me you can’t do life alone and we can’t do life without you! Nor do we want to! 

Hoping you’ll join us and play your part. You matter!
