TIDBITS OF HAPPENINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Watch above to learn about what precautions we're taking (and need you to take) for this weekend's in-person worship.

THIS SUNDAY, MAY 24
BACK AT LIFEBRIDGE IN PERSON!

We're here!
This Sunday, May 24, 2020, we are back LIVE and IN PERSON in worship at LifeBridge!

The Leadership has met to discuss the many benefits and challenges associated with meeting back in-person as well as all the preparations needed to ensure that we do so in a good, safe, orderly, and godly fashion. They will be meeting weekly to stay on top of this list as well as up-to-date developments prior to that date.

We understand that some would like for us to begin this weekend. Others believe we should wait longer. We feel this date gives us the time needed to properly prepare to the best of our ability.
Currently, the following reflects our current decisions as we move forward:
  1. We will begin in-person worship on Sunday, May 24.
  2. Holy Communion will have pre-packaged and wrapped individual bread and wine containers to be shared by the pastor or elder, who will be masked and gloved.
  3. Families sit together, but there will be spaces between their seats and those of other attendees.
  4. No Sunday Bible class. 
  5. No Children's Church. 
  6. No nursery.
  7. Children sit with their families during worship.
  8. No Fellowship Time before worship.
  9. No Greeting Time during worship.
  10. Social distancing practices will be used.
  11. Sanitation of facilities will take place on Saturday evening and Sunday after worship.
  12. We will attempt to also stream live but, even if we can't, the service will be recorded and posted online later the same day.
  13. No worship folder and minimal use of other items that are touched.
  14. The café and youth room will be closed. All will enter and exit through the sanctuary entrance, while keeping social-distancing guidelines.
We know this doesn't answer all questions and are continuing our preparations and evaluation both as we approach May 24 and following it.

We are greatly looking forward to being with you IN-PERSON again!

Until then, remain in Jesus, grow in your faith, and stay safe!

“It’s OK to … but …”
A New Sermon Series

Are Christians really free? What does that mean for how we can and should act? How do our emotions play into our freedoms and actions?

These tough questions play out for us every day in the decisions we make.

More specifically, there are many areas of our lives that get ignored, glossed over, over emphasized, or vandalized – and that shouldn’t be!

In our new sermon series, “It’s OK to … but …”, we are going to take a look at some of the important and practical issues every Christian faces and see what they mean for us as followers of Jesus.

The topics we will cover are, “It’s OK to … but …”

  • Be Angry
  • Grieve
  • Doubt
  • Have Sex
  • Drink Alcohol
  • Be a Democrat/Republican

Join us each week – in person or online! – as we explore these important areas of freedom and duty!


We're in our new, “God’s Promises,” covering the topics:

These are all pertinent to the strange and challenging times in which we currently find ourselves.

Join us online to watch on our YouTube channel (YouTube.com/user/LifeBridgeSealy/) at 10AM on Sundays or later on the website (lifebridgesealy.com/worship).

You can also usually catch our Sunday morning adult Bible class on Facebook Live at 8:30AM. (Also available on the website and YouTube.)

This is just a short announcement to let everyone at LifeBridge know that I need to resign as the Head of the Trustees soon, and we will need someone to take over the Trustees.
 
The Trustee’s primary role at LifeBridge is to keep the building, grounds, and facilities in good, safe, and presentable order.

This position does not mean that you have to do the maintenance yourself, but are the person responsible for seeing that it gets done. Sometimes the Trustees take care of repairs or other maintenance items, while at other times, it requires getting a contractor involved.

HELP US HELP
During these uncertain times, it is important to stay in contact with each other; to listen, pray, and provide.

Many in our LifeBridge and Sealy community are hurting. Many of you are hurting.

Many can help. Many of you can help.

We want to touch base with you and see how we can help and pray for and with you during these challenging times.

We, the Leaders of LifeBridge, want you to know we are here for you, whatever your needs are. Our names and email addresses are at lifebridgesealy.com/about/leadership/. Make use of us - about anything. We're in this with you. We're in this for you.

Thank you and God bless.
