Where I worship

Our church had been without a pastor since Father's Day. It had been a difficult time for our church, but we had some very faithful men who kept it going, while praying for and seeking a new pastor. Meet our new pastor: This sweet couple spent their second Sunday with us yesterday and we already love them so much. Church attendance was great yesterday and we could really feel God's sweet spirit in our services.
This is a picture of the outside of our church. It sits next to a major highway and I love seeing our steeple peep out above the trees when driving on the highway.

This is the inside of our sanctuary. We have a beautiful building and some very sweet members who make it even more special. Yesterday's service was "What to do when you fail, not "if" you fail, but "when" you fail." Last night's service was about "Why we still carry our own burdens, when God tells us to give them to Him." We may still have the burdens, but He will help us carry them, making them a whole lot lighter.
I don't have the guest room ready yet. Of course some things didn't work out the way I had planned. Maybe soon, I'll have pic's for you.

that's a nice big church you attend. Our pastor is only 20 yrs old, he started preaching when he was 14 and he is really good.

Your church looks beautiful. Your new Pastor and wife look like a wonderful couple. It is truly a blessing to belong to a church that you love. God Bless.

I'm so glad God blessed you with such a wonderful young couple. Sometimes it's hard to wait on God when you are in a time of transition. Sounds like they are just what your congregation needs. thank you for this post.
