The promise of Spring…

Written by Seth Baker on . Posted in WBC Blog

It was cold a few weeks ago… COLD!! I had to stop and get gas for my car one morning when the outside temperature read -12 degrees. There wasn’t even a bit of wind, but as I stood outside at the pump I felt like I was taking an ice bath. 

There is a beautiful picture in the icy wasteland though. If there’s one thing I appreciate about the dead of winter, it’s the promise of Spring. No matter how cold, no matter how dead, no matter how miserable the outside can be, Spring comes and it brings warmth and life every single year. As surely as the sun rises the Spring will come, and as surely as the Spring will come God remains faithful to His children. Even when we go through the coldest, deadest, darkest wastelands of life, God’s promise remains true. When circumstances hit that challenge our faith and make us wonder how God is working and what He is doing the coming of spring isn’t a question of ‘if’, it’s the question of ‘when’. We might not know when God is going to move or what He is going to do, but I love testimony of David in Psalm 27:13-14 when he says, ‘I remain confident of this; I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.’ 

No matter what season you’re in or what you’re going through in life, may the winter outside remind you that as surely as the sun rises the spring will come, and as surely as the spring will come, God remains faithful to His children!

50 Years!

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!

On Easter Sunday we’re launching a new message series that will answer this question:

How do we live with hope when life is hard and our future seems so uncertain?

God created us to live on hope.

When our hope levels are running low we struggle to get up and go.

When our hope levels are up we have energy to tackle the challenges of the day.

We’ll discover timeless truth from the Bible that will help us face our everyday circumstances with a heart full of hope.  

We hope you can join us at 9:00 or 10:30am as we celebrate Easter at West Bridge! If you’re a first time guest and you want to know what to expect click here.

Your brother,
