This Week’s Message – “The Reversal Continues

by Pastor Dan Stockum

God isn’t only interested in restoring some of the brokenness in the world, He’s restoring all of it. This week as we study Esther chapter 8, we will see God reverse more of the terrible effects of evil and learn that His plan of redemption is far beyond what we could ever ask or imagine.

Scripture Focus: Esther 8

Deaconesses and Deacons in Need of Volunteers

Bridges’ Deaconess and Deacon Boards are recruiting volunteers to join in the important mission of hearing the word and doing what it says (James 1:22) along with the combined need for faith and action (James 2:16). Our Deaconesses continually support the Bridges family in ways both seen and behind the scenes, and we hope to grow the Deacon Board to similarly serve and also partner with the Deaconesses on joint projects. Have you been looking for ways to serve with other dedicated people? Whether you’d like to send an encouraging note, visit someone in the hospital, give a ride, or something else that excites you, only sign up when you are available and in areas where you want to contribute. For details, contact Board Chairs Sujana Panthulu ( or Tom Hansen (
