The saga continues...

Well, we've been looking for a new church. We love our old one, but it just wasn't the right fit for us anymore. Too long in leadership, and nothing there for our oldest. They're going through a time of transition and so are we, I guess. Anyway, we've visited two churches now. The first one was good, the girls really really liked the kids' program and dh & I loved the worship time. The pastor was away that week at his son's wedding, so we haven't heard him yet though we have heard good things about him. We figured we should try out several before repeating visits. The second church is one that we've been told by many is a very exciting charismatic with a big C church. Well, we hit it on the wrong week! Most of the staff was away and they had a special service involving testimonies from 7 members of the 55+ group. Don't get me wrong, they have wonderful stories to share but 7 of them was a bit much for us as they were extolling the particular church and we were just visiting and from a different denomination. I'm used to the emphasis being on Jesus, not on the denomination. The music wasn't so hot either. Christa wouldn't stay in the Sunday school class, she really didn't like it one bit. Becca & Maya said it was fine. Not too sure if we will go back for another visit or not, though the people seemed friendly.

Still looking for the flaming Volkswagen...
