The good Lord willing we will be opening the Nichols Bridges For Youth Center tomorrow on Monday, August 25th. This is another “To God be the glory” moment at Bridges For Youth as Nichols opens for its 14th year of serving kids. Initially in 2001, as we were led to rent the entire building on Nichols Street, we walked 8 months in faith, with no support of any kind to remodel this building, pay rent, or even the utilities. As the rent,remodeling materials and volunteers to do the work were needed God provided and made a way. It was a beautiful sight to see 32 kids waiting in line at the Nichols Bridges on opening day in August 2001. That to was God’s provision, bringing kids to His place. We soon learned that trusting in God is a one day at a time walk. Through hundreds of impossible battles and thousands of daily interactions with kids, we learned that God’s presence is His provision. We learned that God will make a way, no matter how dark the valley.
Our funding is not in place, but we remain confident that God will make a way and remember how He never leaves nor forsakes us. Our van will pick up make the route to Weaver and Pipkin tomorrow, but take note that all riders must be registered to attend Bridges For Youth this year. You must be at least 6 years old to attend Bridges For Youth. Please do not sign up your 5 year old and expect them to be able to attend. Your child must be 6 to 18 years of age, and only under special circumstances and consideration will we agree to serve a child who is 5 years old. We have a new phone number at the Nichols Bridges 872-0960 To reach our office call 864-4167. Registrations are available in the info box in front of Bridges.
God bless you, Pastor Steve Hare
