Building Bridges LRC 2nd Sunday Services Church Services at the Fort Worth Salvation Army In November we began our services at The Salvation Army In Fort Worth. Our first service had about three people in attendance. As time has gone by, the …
Well Fall is finally here. Leaves are beginning to change colors, the temperature is starting todrop and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
It’s almost everyone’s favorite time of the year.
From spending time with family and friends, to eating way to much good food and remembering all we have to be thankful for.
Unfortunately, it’s not that way for everyone on E. Lancaster in Fort Worth…this can be a very lonely time of the year. Families have been ravaged by mental health issues, addiction, alcoholism or plain old poverty.
For these folks, it gets kind of hard to remember how to be grateful. Oh…there are still a lot of things to be grateful for, it’s just hard to see when you feel, you’ve sunk so low’
Well for the second year in a row now, BUILDING BRIDGES LRC has dedicated a day to help restore a faith based sense of gratefulness in this community. We will begin with a worship service. This year we will have a full band providing worship music, followed by a timely message from God’s word.
After the service we will be serving chicken and dressing, green beans, corn, dinner rolls, and then a nice desert.
All will be served family style. No serving lines. Our volunteers will bring the food to the table.
In other words, they will be our guests.
After the meal we will hand out some goody bags and some winter clothes.
You know sometimes the little things mean more than all the big stuff put together.

If you’ve ever driven down E. Lancaster in the area of the shelters, I’m sure you’ve seen just how littered the streets are with trash. Some of it is weeks, if not months old.
I’m not sure exactlywho is responsible for cleaning the trash up, but I know it needs to be done.
So, on October the 15th of 2022 BUILDING BRIDGES LRC will lead a team of volunteers, as well as a team of our friends without homes to help clean up the neighborhood!
We will begin at 330pm and continue until we are done or run out of daylight. This combined effort is to instill the value of cleaning up after themselves into this community. At this point every program offered to our homeless is a handout. It is my personal observation that when I labor for something, it brings a sense of accomplishment and an ownership that causes me to take pride in what i’ve done.
This is our hope for this event. That the sense of accomplishment causes a chain reaction in the neighborhood and they begin to care for it themselves.
We are truly making a difference in this community.
Come join us on the 15th and watch God change the lives of men and women.
