church home?

We've been going to a church here for a few weeks. I've enjoyed the worship and the messages really seem to be speaking directly to me. They've been about community the last couple of weeks. Of course, they're pushing small groups right now. I'm not 100% sure this is our new church home, so the idea of jumping right in to a small group is a bit overwhelming.

That said, the idea of building a community is very important to me. Especially since I'm missing my community back home very much. I guess I don't just miss the people, but the familiarity of how I lived my faith out in that community where I was so comfortable. I was very grounded by my community and my routines.

I'll get there here. I'm hoping that this time without a community will help me grow closer to God by myself.

  1. It's hard to start in a new church - even when it's in the same town (in my case)! But, I'm sure that once you find one and call it "home," it will be a great place to meet new friends. Whenever we have moved to a new city, our church has always been our base to start making friends. I'll pray that your whole family would nestle in and get some forward momentum going with community. :)
