Building bridges with people who have not yet made the choice to follow Jesus can be hard. But it is a privilege and a responsibility! This week we check out what it looks like to build bridges with people so they can know the love of God.
Bridges are everywhere! Crossing difficult terrain, spanning massive bodies of water, and making life simpler. A bridge is a solution to a difficult problem. It’s also the pathway of connection between two places. In a deeper sense, “a bridge” is the coming together of two parties. This intro to “Building Bridges” is about the problem in our lives that God built a bridge to solve.

With this new series, we take a week to discuss one of four enemies of the heart. Guilt is one that will stick with you and eat you alive if you don't address it and release it in a timely manner.

Jesus wants us to live life to the full and this week we talk about the first enemy and how to combat it.
As we wrap up this series we end with the most important character trait needed for being the hands and feet of Jesus. Humility is one that many people struggle with because it goes against our human nature, but we are taught all throughout God's word that it is essential for being like Jesus.
