Pastor of Student Ministries: After a brief pause, we're beginning, again, to look for a new Pastor of Student ministries. If you'd like to give input as to what we should consider please let us know! We've had over 40 people apply for the job! In the coming weeks, we'll consider your input and begin to arrive at an individual to recommend to the church sometime this summer.
Thank You: Your continued generosity and giving has allowed us to give generously to our community, missionaries/ministries around the world, and our church staff here at home. We have made strategic adjustments to our budget and spending habits but we're praising the Lord that He continues to graciously bless us!
Pray: The church has never been about buildings or budgets; it's been about a gathering of believers. Thank you for your flexibility and willingness to continue to play your part at West Bridge Church. We're excited to be able to gather again soon in a safe and responsible way. In the meantime, please continue to pray and look for opportunities to share the love and hope of Jesus with those around you!
Weekend Plans: Pay attention to your email for plans for this Sunday's services. We'll continue to provide our services through video. However, we're watching the weather and waiting for the new government guidelines due out Friday, for another option to "gather".

Pray: We encourage you to drive to the hospital/healthcare facility and pray for those inside from the parking lot (inside your car). You can even drive around town and pray over your neighbors and friends from your vehicle.

In the interest of preventing the continued spread of COVID-19 and honoring the government's directives, we plan to cancel services here at church on Sunday, March 15th. While we regret not being able to meet together in person, we are grateful technology allows us to continue to hold "church".
We've planned ahead for this and will provide a link to watch a pre-recorded service and discussion questions for your family/friends. We're excited to see how God will work in your family/friends' lives and the possibility of holding a worship service in your home!
As of this time, we're cancelling all gatherings/events/activities at the church until further notice. We'd encourage you to continue to reach out to one another and consider how we may "spur one another on towards love and good deeds" with the people you interact with in your community.
We'll continue to be in contact with you. Please pay attention to your email and the church's website and social media channels for more info. We plan to send out "21 Days of Encouragement" from our Elders and staff starting next week, as well as helpful resources for families to help maximize the time at home with your kids!
If we can help in any way, don't hesitate to reach out to us!
We love you!

Fear causes us to respond reactively or behave in ways that contradict God’s sovereignty. Love, however, is the way of Jesus as he loved at the cost of his life. Instead of responding with panic, we are freed to live as people who have the love of God and love others.
Let us continue to pray for people and areas affected by the virus. Let us pray God would prevent it from spreading and ask instead for the gospel to spread in its place.
We believe the Word is powerful, the Spirit is at work, and God’s people are called by God on mission in this world. Due to the rapidly evolving situation, we will be communicating as things change, so please stay connected to our communication channels, so that you are well informed.
We are planning on continuing with Sunday worship services, however, the information from the State Health Dept/CDC has recommended more vulnerable groups should stay home from worship services.
We also recognize that there may be some who feel uncomfortable attending church for other reasons and want to honor any decision you make.
However, we place a high value on the church gathering as an essential part of the body of Christ and encourage those who are not attending in person to participate in worship with their families. If necessary, we plan to send out a Facebook link to view our services and a discussion guide to discuss as a family.
