THE CHRISTMAS CENTER 

Bridgeway we need your help! We are aiming to fill our new Christmas Center with your generous Christmas gift donations for those who may be experiencing financial difficulties. Please bring an unwrapped gift (valued at $25 and appropriate for ages 2-18) to the Christmas Center table in the Main Lobby during any weekend service October 1st through November 27th. For gift ideas please visit the Christmas Center Lobby table beginning October 1st!

The Christmas Center is a collaborative service provided by Bridgeway Christian Church designed to partner with families, organizations and the community who may be experiencing financial difficulties by providing an opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts at an affordable price. Gifts are available to our guests at a significantly reduced rate (80% off retail value), which allows candidates to Christmas shop. This method offers families the opportunity to participate in the gift-giving part of Christmas by partnering with our guests with a hand-up instead of a hand-out. Bridgeway offers a shopping experience that does not come with the financial stress and burden so that children (18 and younger) can open gifts from their support systems, families and guardians on Christmas morning.

DEFENDING THE CAUSE REGIONAL ALLIANCE ORIENTATION 

At-Risk Youth Care presents the Defending the Cause Regional Alliance Orientation. We see over and over in scripture that God has a special place in his heart for the fatherless including James 1:27 which says “Pure and undefiled religion is this, to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” Additionally, we know that fatherlessness is the greatest predictor of all social ills we see in the world from homelessness, to incarceration, to sex trafficking and we have an opportunity to prevent those problems by showing kids God’s love before it’s too late. In this class we will gain a better understanding of the orphan spirit that we’re all up against, we’ll explore the priority of family as God’s intervention strategy, and we’ll look at the many tangible ways for you as part of the body of Christ to join God in loving His kids in our community and around the world.
