Status Update

With nearly a billion people on Facebook alone, social network sites have become the norm for keeping people connected and sharing the happenings of our everyday lives. However, there can be a disconnect between who we are and our digital selves. Status Update is a look at our identity- who we are, what motivates us, […]

What’s on your mind?

Dave shared this last weekend (listen here) about what Jesus might post as his Status Updates if he were a Facebook friend. What if you could have a running log of what your attention is on through the day? Would it look like a bowl of spaghetti? Would there be order & logic? How much […]

21 Day Challenge– Finding our Purpose through Prayer

This last Sunday I started our series called “Status Update” about finding God’s purpose in life.  What Drives You?  Is it something like guilt, anger, fear or the desire for wealth or approval?  All things things can distract us from God’s love & plan for our lives.

Knowing this happens to many expats who move to the City if Lights, it is our heart to provide an opportunity to get connected to a community of faith- The Bridge. In this […]
