Happy Member Monday!
It’s a VERY cold Member Monday today, but we love seeing how all of you are making the best of this cold weekend together! We hope all of you are staying warm and enjoying the extra time with your loved ones! ❄️💙
Happy Member Monday! Today we bring you the Schroeder Family!
We sure are glad that our Member Monday waited for Tuesday because now we get to highlight the Schroeder family! We love that Brian, Kelly and there three kiddos call The Bridge their church home. Their boys, Kyle and Peyton, bring all of the energy to Bridge Kids and we have loved watching them grow through the years. Now they have a sweet baby sister, Riley, who has joined the fam and we are looking forward to so many more memories to be made with the Schroeder family!
Brian is also very involved in Bridge Builders youth as our middle school boys small group leader. Brian takes pride in having the largest small group (and most energetic) at Bridge Builders Youth! Brian also volunteers to come to The Bridge on his lunch break twice a week to stack chairs so our youth group can play basket ball on Wednesday nights. Actions like that show how Brian is always thinking of how he can get more youth engaged in connecting with each other and connecting with God.
We hope you enjoy Kelly and Brian’s love story, featured by UTPB, as much as we do. We are sure thankful God led you to each other and led your sweet family to The Bridge so we can all do life together!
Happy Member Monday! Today we bring you the Jordan Family!
Today we are excited to share with you some of our Bridge members the Jordan family! Matt, Stephanie, Addy and Ryder chose The Bridge as their church because of the constant love and support the Bridge provides. The Jordans felt, "...welcomed with open arms at The Bridge. Everyone was helpful and friendly helping us navigate through the areas of the church. Plus, the smell of coffee and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies was a bonus!"
Helping Pastor Jessica with the Daughter's of the King dance in 2020 was one of Stephanie's favorite memories volunteering with The Bridge. You can also find Stephanie serving you up a fresh cup of coffee on Sunday mornings in our Bridge Hospitatlity Area. Stephanie believes in lending your talents for God's purpose and we are so thankful she shares her talents and sweet family with us at The Bridge!
It’s Member Monday and today we bring you the Mattimoe family!
This sweet family always brings a smile to our face at The Bridge! We have loved getting to worship with them and serve alongside them through the years. Watching Katie grow up in our Bridge Kids program and now be such an active member of our Bridge Builders Youth has been such an awesome experience! Katie now serves as a leader in our Bridge Kids Toddler class and those little kiddos absolutely love playing and learning from her. Kelly and Gordon have participated in various Bridge Life classes and activities and Kelly has been such an integral part of our Bridge Kids program for years now and has volunteered countless hours with our Bridge Kids. You can also usually see Kelly and Katie welcoming you as you enter The Bridge on Sunday mornings. This family is always willing to volunteer in whatever way we need them to and we love seeing how their hearts for the Lord shine through the many ways they are involved in life at The Bridge.
Thank you Mattimoe family for calling The Bridge your church home. We love doing life with y’all!
Happy Member Monday! Today we bring you Connie and Jim Armstrong!
After moving to Odessa in 2017 Connie and Jim Armstrong were looking for a church home. They shared with us they felt at home right away, began making friends, and quickly fell in love with their new church family at The Bridge.
During the pandemic, Jim and Connie moved back to Kansas City, Missouri and say one of the hardest parts of leaving Odessa was leaving their church family at The Bridge. However, they have been able to stay active members of The Bridge via worshipping virtually with us through Facebook Live and Zooming with their small group.
Connie shared, "Staying connected online has held us up through some dark days. Not only do we attend virtually on Sunday, we meet with our small group through Zoom. It has been a lifeline at a time when we can't physically visit local churches. We miss the hugs and joining in activities, but we are so blessed to have The Bridge with us at our "satellite location"!"
We miss physically spending time with you Armstrongs, but we are sure thankful that we still get to worship, serve, pray, and do life alongside of you as a Bridge family!
