    THE PATH CLASS 

    We are excited to announce that we are starting a brand new class this fall called The Path. The Path is a ten-week discipleship experience. It is a personal journey - one that will deepen your connection with God and His Church while helping you discover your part in the grand story God is writing. The Path isn’t just about learning information - it is an opportunity for transformation as you gather around tables and participate in experiences that allow you to ask questions and explore together how God has wired you to participate in His Kingdom. This Fall The Path will be offered on Tuesday evenings starting September 13th. Consistent attendance at The Path is very important. The richness of the class is found in the small group environments, and that richness will only develop if group members are consistent in their attendance. Please plan to attend at least eight of the ten sessions. The Path will also be offered in the winter and the spring, and we want everyone who calls Bridgeway home to experience it. The Path is the way to get connected at Bridgeway while deepening your walk with God, so sign up today.

Heart to Heart, the women’s mentoring ministry at Bridgeway is looking for new mentors. One of the great benefits of mentoring is seeing the many ways God uses your experience and expertise to speak into someone else’s life. Likewise, if you would like to have someone you can come to for Biblically based guidance with life’s circumstances, or for help in furthering your spiritual walk, you might consider requesting a mentor.
