MCM Update: BridgePoint Church

BridgePoint's New Building

Over the next few posts, I wanted to take an opportunity to share some updates from our most recent MCM church plants.  I’ll start off with Pastor Greg & Francie Krowitz and BridgePoint Church in Tarentum, PA.

BridgePoint (BPC) just celebrated its two-year anniversary last month and has had some exciting things happen in recent months.  This past October, they were able to move out of their meeting space, a boxing gym, and into a more permanent church building owned by First Christian Church in Tarentum. The provision of this building was an answer to prayer and God’s continued favor on our MCM churches in miraculously providing church buildings!

For the month of October BPC met at 9am, prior to First Christian’s service.  Then in November, the leadership of First Christian decided to cancel their Sunday morning service and join BPC’s service, allowing them to have a later start time of 10am.  Since that time, BridgePoint has seen a number of new families joining the church and in addition to meeting in this building on Sunday mornings and they have now moved their offices and small groups into the building.  Over this last 6 months, BPC has experienced some incredible favor with the First Christian leadership already, and we are believing that BPC will one day own this beautiful building, allowing them to continue to be a beacon of hope to the Allegheny Valley!

Recent water baptism in BPC's new building

This past Sunday, BPC had one of their regular baptism services that they are now able to have with the baptismal in their new building.  Greg baptized 6 people, which included a mom & her two sons, a brother & sister and a young adult! God continues to move at BPC and we know that the best is yet to come!

As we celebrate what God is doing in Tarentum through BridgePoint, continue to keep Pastor Greg and Francie in your prayers as they look toward this 3rd year of existence as a church and lead BPC toward a place of greater influence and impact in the community!

Day 2 of CityReach

Well, Day 2 of CityReach has come to a close and it was another good one! I was at BridgePoint tonight and we had Seth Franco speak. Seth is a former Harlem Globetrotter who now travels and uses his basketball tricks to share the love of Christ with people. It was a great night to see the pavilion filling up with people from the community! Below, I posted a video of Seth’s basketball routine tonight.

Also, in case you’re wondering here are the evening totals: we had 547 people at the outreach services tonight, 432 kids attend the Kid’s Crusades and the best part of the night: at least 47 people committed their lives to Christ!! What a week! Enjoy the video!

Look Out Tarentum!

I just wanted to take a minute to give honor where honor is due.  Our newest church plant, BridgePoint Church, is doing so well thanks to the faithful work of Pastor Greg & Francie Krowitz!  I am so proud of how they’ve been obedient to do what God has called them to and God is doing something amazing in Tarentum through them!  Check out Greg’s latest post from this past weekend and rejoice with them!!
