Why we LOVE our church family

*tonight, we are handing out treat bags to the local kids.

* we have TONS of activities with our youth

* the entire church family (youth, too) is going to watch Fireproof this weekend& we will work on "The Love Dare" at Bible Study.

*we are serious about loving others.

*our Sunday dress code is "come as you are". we often wear jeans.

*my husband and other men give lessons (we don't call them sermons) every week. This gives them something to discuss with each other and to learn from.

*we eat dinner together at least twice a month. we are always trying to find ways to do more things together.

*at my husband's job, our church is referred to as, "that church Charlie goes to, they are good people. they don't look down on you."

*I don't know about you, but to me, that means we are doing something right. =)

*our kids love each other. their friends from church are very important to them.

*we do SO many things as a group. we are trying to live life together. To BE the church.

anyway, I just wanted to say all of this. I have been meaning to for awhile. Sometimes I feel like I focus on the problems in life to much and I don't proclaim all of the good things, all of my blessings. Our church family has been a MAJOR blessing in our life. And continues to be.

Please be in prayer for my Uncle Edwin Crowell. He is very ill and doesn't have a good prognosis. we love him so much.

*There are just SO many things I could say about our church family, but here's the one best thing to me:
