I know this is a little late, but it’s been a pretty busy week. This past Sunday brought with it some major milestone moments for a few of our MCM church plants (sorry for the alliteration!). Here’s a quick rundown of the big happenings across our city:
- Ambridge Christian Center held their annual business meeting and officially changed their name to Bridgeway Church. Pray for them on Apri 5 as they a launch a ‘reintroduction’ to their community.
- Ridgewood Church also held their annual business meeting on Sunday and finalized the process to become a sovereign church with the Assemblies of God. In light of Evangel Church merging with Ridgewood this past July, this was a big moment because members of both congregations had the opportunity to now be ‘charter members’ of this new sovereign church!
- Also, during Ridgewood’s business meeting they voted to give the old Evangel building to Pittsburgh City Outreach as an investment into the Kingdom of God. I am so proud of this congregation for paying their resources forward, and I truly believe God will bless them for their generosity!
One of the incredible things about being part of such a great network of churches is that we’re family…we mourn together and this past Sunday we celebrate together! Congratulations Mike, Chris & Brian!!
Great news, but honestly — Ridgewood, Bridgepoint and now Bridgeway. Maybe I’m just “old” but these church plant names result in a tongue twister!
Haha – I agree Maria. Maybe we’ll name our next church plant Ridgepoint?
