Country Church Day is Sunday, May 7 at 11am! Join us for worship, celebration, delicious food by the church’s renowned cooks, and great music.

Our special guest this year will be William Washington, author and founder of the Bridge Ministry.
 
The Bridge Ministry is an 18 month residential program helping men with life controlling issues. William served as an elder for six years at Christ Community church. In 2001, he was recognized as one of a “Distinguished Dozen” by the Daily Progress. In 2006, William received the Bridge Builders award given by the City of Charlottesville and had his name placed on the Drewary J. Brown Memorial Bridge “in honor of those people who succeeded in building bridges in our community.” That same year, he also published his autobiography, His Grace Is Sufficient. The following year, he received an award for outstanding service to the community from the Widow’s Sons Masons. He has recently released his second book, People, Places, & Things: A Guide to Overcoming Addictive Behavior.
In August 2009, he and his wife founded The Outreach Church located in Buckingham Virginia on the Bridge Ministry campground. The Lord showed William a new way to minister to people by letting the Holy Spirit lead him in the pulpit and in relationships. William saw how God wanted to speak for Himself and draw into close fellowship with His people. This is how “Relationship and not Religion” became the mission message of the Outreach Church.
 
William’s life gives evidence that where a man or woman has walked and the challenges experienced do not matter as much as a personal relationship with God; for His grace is sufficient day by day.

Hope we see you at Gilboa! More information on Country Church Day is here.
