Search for a Church: Revisited, Part 2

So a while ago I posted about looking for another church. I’m proud to report that I found a place that I absolutely love!

Last night, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the pastor and his wife’s ministry there. As I was listening to the stories people shared and watching the faces of the many people in attendance, I could feel the overwhelming love that the pastor and his family has for the church and the love that this church family has for the pastor and his family. I’m glad that I was there to be a part of it.

Tonight, I gathered in fellowship with 250 women from the church family and let me tell you, we had a blast! There was food, fellowship and FUNNY! They brought in an improv comedy team that did a fantastic job! It was really a great time!

The last two nights have been lots of fun, but the best part is: I get to go back for more fun tomorrow. It is truly a JOY to be a part of a church family where you can feel the love everyone has for each other and has for God. I am so grateful that God brought me to a place that I am excited to go to every week! Multiple times a week in fact. Just in the short amount of time since I’ve started attending this church, I have met so many great people who have taken me in and embraced me like I’ve been a member for years. We have a wonderful head pastor whose love for Christ and the Word is evident every time he gets up to speak! And his wife, who is an associate pastor, is great. I even had to confess to the pastor that she was the reason I came back after visiting once. She is such a warm, welcoming woman, that if he was married to her, I knew he had to be legit.

Anyhow, if it seems I’m really geeked about my church, it’s cause I am. In fact, the whole purpose of this post is to BRAG about how wonderful my new church is. I think I’ve accomplished this goal.
