For the week of July 3, 2022
WIND & FIRE: ENCOUNTERING THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is the most misunderstood member of the Trinity…which explains the constant discomfort and power outages in the lives of many believers. If you’re hungry for a fresh touch of God’s Spirit or simply want to understand better how to access the power of God, join our Senior Pastor, Dr. Lance Watson for this new series "Wind & Fire", starting Sunday, June 5 at 10 AM on our mobile app, at MySPBC.tv, Facebook, YouTube, Roku TV and Apple TV.

THE BRIDGE BIBLE STUDYLove. Career. Kids. House. Sports. Retirement. Education. Money. The things we strive for are constantly jockeying for position in our lives. How do we decide what is most important? Who or what deserves our time? What if we’ve been thinking about this all wrong? What if we’ve let the important things in life override Jesus Christ, the greatest of all things? Paul’s letter to the Colossians declares that life with a “less than" version of Jesus only works for so long. In this new teaching series, Jesus is Greater; we will examine what it practically looks like to live believing that Jesus truly is GREATER.
Meet us at The Bridge for Bible Study on Thursdays at 11 am and 7 pm on our mobile app, at MySPBC.tv, Facebook, YouTube, Roku TV, and Apple TV.
