Church Hunting

It's an awful phrase isn't it? But unless you are still attending the church you grew up in, most (church going) people will have experienced this at least once, depending on how many times you have relocated. It's not a very fun process. We have been in the midst of the hunt for many months, trying to muster up the motivation and the courage to attend another church where nobody knows our names. This is especially hard coming from a church that we have attended most of our lives, where just about everyone not only knew our names but knew our families and what schools we have attended and what current jobs we hold. They just knew us. There is much comfort and security in that. But we were called to move on, so the search ensued and thankfully, we believe, is now over. God has led us to a wonderful church called First Baptist where we actually know a handful of people and are getting to know more and more every week. It's location downtown is nice and close to us, and also great for minisry opportunitues there. We are excited to see how God will use us within the church and also within the surrounding communuity. So, we can finally say that the hunt is over. Praise God!

congratulations for making that big step! Once the hunt is done, it's fun and an adventure to get connected. Blessings on the process.

Yeah, yeah, you are now officially the cool sibling by attending the same church Chloe and Matt do. I guess I'll have to think of something to make it up to them since I live so far away...no, seriously, that is awesome you found a great church. Go FBC!

Congrats! We are in a similar situation although we haven't moved on yet. We got married in our church and have been there even long before that. It is time to move on and we are dragging our feet...it is coming thought! Glad to hear you found your new church home!
