Sunday smiles

Today was a beautiful sunny day, the kind of day that can make a gal appreciate living in California even though her heart is in the Midwest. Spring has already arrived here, and we were able to spend some time outside with the kids this afternoon. We took a walk to the neighborhood park and back, staying long enough for the kids to use up some energy on the playground before the uphill walk back.

But even better than having wonderful spring weather to enjoy today, we had a great time of worship this morning as well. The past two Sundays we had visited Valley Church, but today we decided to try Crossroads Christian Church, less than 15 minutes from the house. Of all the churches we have been to near our home, this one was by far the friendliest one. We had several people go out of their way to talk to us, and by that I mean carry on a conversation, not just exchange names. I don't like to "rate" worship experiences, so I will just say that we weren't disappointed. I probably felt more at home/comfortable in this place than the other churches we've visited in the last couple of months. The kids loved their classes, as well. That's always a plus. Emily knows several teens that attend this congregation; I believe several teachers from her school are there also, including her principal. I'm not sure if that's a plus for her, but I consider it one! I am really looking forward to going back next week. Thanks to those of you who have been praying about this situation for us. I am hoping that this may be an answer to those prayers, but don't stop just yet!

I have been a member of the Church of Christ/Christian churches my entire life...my husband and I are both preacher's kids. LOL I'm glad to hear the people were friendly and your family enjoyed the services.
