On Thursdays, we want to make you aware of a church planting effort in North America. Today, we’re excited to introduce The Bridge Church, faithfully serving the City of Brooklyn New York.
Hello from Brooklyn!
Our newest staff member, Brandon Baah will be Campus Minister for Long Island University in Downtown Brooklyn. He will be heading up our college campus ministry starting Oct. 1.
Please pray for him as he steps into full-time ministry & gets married this month.
Long Island University is strategically located in the middle of Downtown Brooklyn. It is a multicultural college with over 10,000 students. With Pastor James as the Campus Pastor here, the door is wide open for Brandon & Elizabeth (Bridge intern) to start a movement here. The harvest is plentiful, pray for our laborers.
Please pray for the students of LIU & Brandon & Elizabeth as they catalyze a movement of the Holy Spirit on this campus.
We believe that God is giving us a renewed focus on prayer. We have been soaking everything we do- worship, teaching, community, Bible studies, outreaches, staff meetings- in prayer. We are desperate for God’s presence in our lives & in our city. We believe that the only way we will see a movement of the Holy Spirit in Brooklyn is through the power of His presence through prayer.
Please pray for us as we strive to be a house of prayer.
With an average of 70 people on our Sunday worship gatherings, please pray that we will continue to be a unified body through Christ’s love.We are now consistently having men & women’s gatherings monthly! It is a time where we invest in each other and go deeper in our friendships.
Pray that we will continue to grow deeper in intimacy with one another.
Pray that all of our first time guests on Sundays will experience His presence.
We had two firsts this past month! We had our first baby dedication with Charlotte Bowman where we prayed that she would one day love Jesus for herself. We also had our first wedding- Congratulations to Carvens & Leslee Lissaint!
We love our city, which means we serve our city. One of our outreaches this month was to feed the homeless. We packed over 150 lunches and met them on the street. By giving them food, we got to hear their stories, encourage them, and pray with them. We want to care for the vulnerable in Brooklyn because God does.
Please pray for that God will continue to use us as His hands and feet to share the hope of Jesus with the homeless.
We are also forming a partnership with CHIPS (Christian Help in Park Slope). It is a charity in our neighborhood that serves food to the hungry, poverty-stricken, and homeless. This month we served hot meals to over 250 people. We believe we can use food as a means to connect with these men & women.
Pray that God would continue to open doors to connect with the vulnerable people in our neighborhood.
