A New Church...And A New Friend!

We've lived here for almost a year now and although we felt sure that this was where God wanted us to be, the one thing we were still unsettled about was finding a church that we loved! Bruce and I have separately and together been to know less than six different churches...we liked the kids' programs at some, the worship at others, the teaching at none. It was really frustrating and leaving a big hole in our lives! I've been reading the blog of a young woman who lives in the Tampa area (and I still can't remember how I came upon her blog), but I knew from her writing that she was a Christian, so I asked her where she went to church. Bruce visited Bay Life Church last weekend and then the whole family went yesterday...and we loved it! Amazing worship, wonderful teaching and the kids' programs look very promising! It's about a 40 minute drive, but that's how far we drove to our old church in MD and , as with Lifepoint, there's nothing that comes to Bay Life closer to us so we'll gladly make the trek!

Yesterday I also got to meet the friend who guided us there in the first place! Leslie and her husband Kyle! She's sooo pretty and sweet (I on the other hand came to church after getting ready with NO electricty because of a storm) and her husband, Kyle holds the honor as the first and only person I've ever met from South Dakota! Though we're probably old enough to be their parents, as we continue at Bay Life, I hope we can continue our friendship!
