Day of Prayer & Praise

We're starting a new ministry year as a church, and there is no better way to start than to begin in prayer, seeking the Lord together for the year ahead.

This, Then, is How You Should Pray...

This week was a special service as a church family focused on prayer - focusing our eyes on our Lord and seeking HIM for the ministry year ahead!

Day of Prayer 2020

Psalm 107 gives us fuel for our soul to WORSHIP the Lord! "Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love..."

Day of Prayer

It doesn't take much to mess with our perspective. And when our perspective is off our fuel to live-out our life mission runs low. Today's message leads us to a powerful truth that will help us maintain a healthy perspective.

3 of our Biggest Cultural Issues

Oftentimes the ones we are the most honest with are those we live and do life with. Those, hopefully constructive, criticisms can be hard to hear sometimes, but did you know a healthy, thriving family is the best place to help guard your heart? They see us in a way we don't see ourselves. This week we wrap up our THRIVE family series as we uncover 3 of the biggest cultural issues we face today. We'll look for wisdom from God's Word to help our families THRIVE in our current culture as we seek to glorify Him in all things!

Finances God's Way

This week we take a look at what the Bible has to say about one of the biggest stressors within a family. However, when we use some biblical guidelines, we can turn the stressor into an opportunity to glorify God as a family and enjoy His goodness!

Parenting: Love God & Love Your Kids

What is our goal with parenting? Do we work to bring glory to God or to ourselves? We may not always get it right, in fact, we certainly won't, but God's Word is our guiding force. This week we will be in Deuteronomy 6 to hear what God tells his people. It's not complicated, it's actually quite relieving to know what God commands and it will help us in all areas, not just parenting.

Process the Hurt

This is the first week of our new message series called "THRIVE". We are aimed at helping families maneuver life together and THRIVE in Christ! This week we start by looking at Ephesians 5.1-2 for wisdom in processing the hurt in life and restoring relationships.

God is at Work

We're finishing up our message series on 'living life on mission' and it's a wild ride as we 'set sail' with Paul through the Mediterranean! We'll be reminded through Acts 27 that God is at work in the storm, seeing it in Paul's experience and looking for Him in our 'storms' as well.

July 24, 2022

Wherever God Places Us

This week we encourage each other to keep living on mission as we look at Paul's example in Acts 18. No matter where God places each of us, we can be sure He has opportunities available for let's gear up for victory!

What God Wants Us To See

Houston, We Have a Problem: Week 3

We're jumping back into our RESET message series through the book of Acts. It's going to be a great text to remind us of our mission as followers of Christ! We're reading through Acts 11 to find 5 marks that help us thrive both in our personal walk with Christ and also as a church body.

April 10, 2022

Let's GO!

From Ordinary to EXTRAordinary

As we continue our series in Acts, we will see how the gospel continues to advance, even to the ends of the earth. And we will learn how God uses ordinary believers to do something extraordinary!

Living On Mission With Resilience

Stephen is an example of a witness in Acts 6-7 that was resilient in the face of adversity, even to the end. May we be faithful to proclaim the good news of Christ in the highs and lows, too!

March 20, 2022

It Will Not Be Stopped!

Are you ready for some 'wind in your sails'? Could you use some encouragement to keep on?! We are in Acts 5, and are reminded of some encouraging truth - that we can be a part of something that WILL NOT BE STOPPED because our God has already overcome the enemy! 

March 13, 2022

Great Fear

This week we'll see how God pours out his grace through HIS CHURCH! We're praying God's grace flows through YOU as you are an important part of His church here @ West Bridge. 

March 6, 2022

The Courage....

Acts 4 shows us examples where the BOLDNESS of Jesus-followers makes a big difference in their community. We'll look for the source of their boldness and see how it is available to us today, too!

February 27, 2022

Witness, Praise & Repent

We usually have lots on our "to-do" lists or things we want to do or change, but what if we had something greater to focus on that would help everything else fall into it's right place?! As we look at Acts 3 on Sunday, we'll be reminded of what (or WHO) is the treasure, the focus, and the reason we can find peace, even when our to-do list is long!

5 Marks of a Thriving Church

When the body of Christ is working together, it is a beautiful thing! This week we look at the rest of Acts 2 to see some defining marks of HIS church working together for HIS glory! We'll also be sharing specific ways we can do this as HIS church here at West Bridge and beyond.

February 13, 2022

Something New

We all love new things. The look of new paint. The smell of a new car. The way new clothes fit. God does something new in Acts 2 that radically changed the world in which we live. As a matter of fact, this new thing He did is the reason our church is here today!

What We Do In The Waiting Moments of Life

We're finishing up Acts 1 as we take a look at how to navigate those seasons in life when we're left waiting. It doesn't have to be wasted time if we are obedient to what God calls us to do!

Can I get a witness?

We each have unique passions, yet there's one passion that should unite us as followers of Christ! We're kicking off a series through the book of Acts to help ignite our passion to be HIS church. Week 1 we'll take a look at our gift and our calling as Christ-followers...and what we do from there!

The past several years have revealed a lot of underlying issues in all of our lives. If we're being honest, we have had some unrealistic expectations, some idols in our lives and some pain and hurt that we've buried deep down. If we don't start to deal with those, and allow God's word to transform our thinking, it can be detrimental to the lives we want and should live. There's a saying that goes, "It's ok to not be ok, but it's not ok to stay there." 

Over the next 3 weeks, we'll be taking a short break from the book of Acts. The series is called, "To be honest..." and we're hoping to take an honest look at ourselves and help each other step up to the calling God has on our lives.

Called to be: Worry FREE!

Are you feeling at peace? In this 3rd and final message in our "To be honest..." series, we'll address what to do when we're not feeling the peace that God offers. There are plenty of uncertainties that can threaten our peace, so let's search God's Word to rest in His certain provision for us - even in this uncertain world. What a great encouragement for a mom in your life who has much on her plate as we celebrate Mother's Day!

I'm Not Feeling the Hope

It's Week 2 in our "To be honest..." message series, and we'll be taking a look at what the Bible says when we're not feeling the HOPE. In light of the cross and what we just celebrated at Easter, how do we live our lives now - full of HOPE? 

April 24, 2022

I Don't Feel Like Forgiving

This week, we' start with the topic of "To be honest...I'm not feeling the love." We'll dig into the example of 1 Kings 1 to see how we can still pursue Christ when we're not feeling the love towards others and what God says of forgiveness.
