~ no other fount I know ~

It's kind of a
long story but
just before
Christmas we

decided that it was in the best interest of our children that we leave the little church we were going to
and pray for guidance for something new and different.

The decision to change churches is such a hard decision to make. It was hard to leave the people that our boys already had come to recognize and know. It was hard to leave those peple that we had got to know and love. There was just a discerning in our hearts that there was something better for our boys somewhere else, as well as somewhere better for us.

We prayed and prayed and prayed - it was very obvious though.
Very.

So we parted ways and that was right before Christmas so we put off "Church Shopping" for a while... actually last Sunday while... and Wow! Had I missed church. The fellowship, the feeding, the music and the peace you feel when you are there.... even if there are two little rascals pulling and tugging and playing and talking FAR too loud.

Needless-to-say our boys were completely out of practive and why wouldn't they be? It's been like 5 - 6 months! This first church we tried out this last Sunday was only 2 blocks away - so Sunday morning, we got on our Sunday-best and walked to church. It was so cool. I loved it!

The church itself had been converted from an old Catholic church - little confessional boxes in the back and all! Very quaint with a lot of very friendly people to welcome us. There were a lot of little ones running around which obviously meant young couples but the church in general was pretty tiny. Maybe 50 people present.

The very first song tugged at my heart... it was

'Nothing but the Blood of Jesus'.

This particular Sunday they had guest music which was very nice.

The opening to the Pastor's message - he used a puppet to make some brief announcements and release the kiddos to "Kids Club" it was so awesome and my boys watched him with their mouths dropped open. It was pretty entertaining!

 I was blessed to have had to take little William down to nursery and I met up with a sweet gal down there who invited me to check out her Mama's Group. She touched my heart by going out on a limb and inviting a complete stranger to her home.

Overall we liked the church - I'm in prayer daily for guidance if it is a good fit for us. The Pastor preaches straight from the Bible which is ideal for us and his messages are thought provoking and encouraging.

I think we shall definately keep this one in mind and if you think of us, please keep us and this "church shopping" situation in your prayers. Thanks!

 4He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Hearts,
