Today we take time to honor and bless our beloved pastor and his beautiful family. As many attested to today, we have truly been blessed to have a pastor who is God fearing, anointed, awesome, strong, caring, loving, trustworthy, faithful, smart, knowledgable… we can go on and on! We love you Dr. Bridges and look forward to the best that is yet to come! We thank God today also for Dr. Henry and First Lady Armington, Sr. who traveled from Shreveport, Louisiana, to celebrate with us this morning. Dr. Armington delivered a powerful message that there is “A Dilemma In the Pulpit” (1 Corinthians 4:9) Dr. Armington reminded us how blessed we are to have a Godly pastor who is not afraid to preach the true Word of God no matter who’s feelings get hurt. There is no “butterfly sermons” being preached in our pulpit. He encouraged has to continue to be thankful that we have a pastor who is more concerned with our souls than the temporary fortunes of this world. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
