FunDay Follow-Up

One of our Fun Day participants... having fun!

We had a great day yesterday at The Bridge’s (free!) Family Fun Day.  We had a steady stream of attendance (an average of just over 100 people an hour from the community) and over 120 volunteers from our own launch team and other District churches who helped make the day an amazing success.  Some more photos of the day’s events are posted at

Our District Superintendent also having fun :-)

Here are the ways God answered your prayers for the day:

  • We asked you to pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit and we definitely sensed we were operating in God’s strength and by his favor.
  • We asked you to pray for safety and security and we had no serious incidents; we were able to leave the park in better shape than we found it.  There was one medical need that occurred immediately following the arrival of area medics who wanted to check in–the timing was amazing as God provided the right people at the right time!
  • We asked you to pray for deep connections and I believe these were made!  We had amazing conversations with people seriously interested in The Bridge, our ministry, and finding out about when/where we’ll be meeting.  Quality interaction occurred with people from a variety of backgrounds and religious histories.
  • Our DS's wife taking part!

    We asked you to pray that seeds would be planted and they were!  We were told by many people they couldn’t believe we would do such a high-quality event for free, that individuals hadn’t been around so many nice, caring people in a long time, and saw genuine appreciation for what was happening.  One individual from the community even asked if people had been praying for the event because they could clearly sense God’s presence on the grounds!

  • We asked you to pray for people to come to know Christ.  As far as I know, no one crossed the line of faith yesterday, but I am confident we built significant relationships with people who, as a result of interacting with followers of Jesus through The Bridge, will recognize Jesus as King and find new life in him.

The Holy Spirit is on the move and using all kinds of different people from many different churches as he grows his Kingdom and builds The Bridge in East Pittsburgh!

Thanks for taking part with us!

  1. Glad to hear all went well. Our prayer team has been praying for the event. I will pass the good news along to them.

  2. It was an awesome day within our district. Working along side fellow believers and seeing God’s pressence in Penn Hills was awesome. So glad our DS the Swinks were able to join us.

    • I loved the sense of partnership. People from all over the District were putting on their ‘church planting’ hats and taking part in building The Bridge; it was an in-action reminder that we aren’t in this alone.

  3. AWESOME! Praising the Lord with The Bridge and all that were involved. Thank you for sharing the recap & photos, JXG!

    • Stevan, thanks again for sharing First Wesleyan’s bounce house with us for the event–we really are astounded at the incredible sense of connectedness that is growing between The Bridge and many of our District churches. I have to say, it’s awesome that seeing greater things come to Pittsburgh isn’t just “a Bridge thing” but an investment we’re all making together!
