so, nick and i have been on the look out for a church to plug into since we moved here about a month ago. we knew this would be no easy task. we both experience god in different ways so we knew god was going to have to lead to a church that we could both agree on. after visiting 3 great churches, we still didn’t feel strongly that we were supposed to get involved more fully in any of those. which leads us to last sunday morning….
we walked into princeton alliance church not really knowing what to expect, but open to whatever way god might be leading. it was a vision sunday so the pastor talked about what direction the church was desiring to go in the next year. what was cool though was that he book-ended his message by talking about the greatness of god. yes, the church does have plans, but he emphasized clearly that it wasn’t about what they do, it was about the being connected with the living god. SO, what nailed the deal for us was when they talked about some of the different ministry’s the church offers. they have community groups which meet once a week to go deeper into what the pastor talks about each sunday. they also offer a ton of men’s ministry stuff which nick was def interested in. the youth group is awesome! and i’m going to start volunteering next week with the middle schoolers. and then the coolest thing was what they called the marriage mentor ministry. they train a couple who has been married for a while, to lead and guide couples that are just starting out. nick and i both felt so excited to have a system set up where we can be mentored by another couple. SO, we are just really excited. we are looking forward to the ways we will be able to connect and serve at this church and lord-willing it will be our church community for the next three years!
on another note: this is NOT a college football blog contrary to all the previous posts 🙂 although i can say that college football will be mentioned quite frequently until december. for example, i think it should be noted that fsu won on saturday AND uf and miami both lost. i am not gonna lie, i was stoked.
