NEXT (formerly Growth Rail) is the “next step” in discovering and living out your purpose. NEXT is comprised of three sessions:
1) Become a Member
An essential part of living out purpose is connecting with a local church. People will learn more about The Bridge and have an opportunity to join as members.
2) Discover Your Design
Serving is vital to discovering and fulfilling your purpose. God has wired us uniquely in order to serve Him and others. We discover our God-given uniqueness by knowing and assessing our SHAPE: spiritual gifts, heart (passions), abilities, personality, and experiences. Our SHAPE will give us an idea of what God has called us to do and be. Our role as a church is to connect you to serving opportunities on the service team that fits your God-given calling.
3) Develop Your Leadership
God has called all of us to have influence. The question is whether or not we will leverage that influence for his glory. The purpose of Leadership is to cast vision of what it means to be a leader and plant seeds for individuals to take ownership at The Bridge. They will learn how they can strengthen their character and begin fulfilling their leadership potential. They will also learn what it takes to be a leader at The Bridge.
The upcoming NEXT series will take place on Sundays, May 19, 26th and June 9th from 1:00pm - 2:00pm at Creative Colony located at 8720 Georgia Avenue, Suite 302, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Refreshments will be provided.
