Church Hunting

Posted 02-12-2013 at 11:53 AM by Krista

I posted in the forums a while ago about leaving the church we’d been attending for almost three years. We have some fond memories at that church. We renewed our vows at that church, and were able to do a fancy affair we’d been planning for so long, as we’d gotten married at the court house five years earlier. Both of my daughters were baptized there by a pastor we dearly loved.

However, we got into a place where we felt outside of the group we belonged to…and there were a lot of hurt feelings. I don’t think I will ever get over it completely, and as a result I am very skeptical but… we really need a church home. Our girls in particular need a chance to socialize with kids their age and a chance to learn more about God.

We are starting a new church tomorrow, our first attempt in almost a month. It is a big church, so it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. I am hoping it might be the one for us though! Prayers would be muchly appreciated!

    Prayers granted. We switched churches under not so wonderful situations. Bitterness and hurt were defintely a part of our church search. We finally found a new home and even though it was another “big” church, we were amazed at how easily we fit in. Good luck Mama!

    I truly hope you find what you are looking for in a church! We love our church and would be so lost without them. Some of our closest friends are families we go to church with. Hope it goes well!

    Very good, actually! We like it a lot…they have a LOT of stuff for the kids to do and so far everyone seems really nice! We’re hopeful, but not committing just yet. Thanks for reading!!
