Halcyon Posted July 23, 2012 Share Posted July 23, 2012 (edited) So tonight was the new member session at the church I decided to join. It's a UCC church, so theologically it's mostly a fit. I like the pastor well enough. He gives good sermons, but he doesn't have a hugely dynamic personality (not a criticism, he just seems quiet). THe congregation is a bit older than I would like, and there are not many kids (I think 2-3 in each of my kids' respective age groups) but my boys like it and can't wait to go each week (we had to miss today because my back went out and they were really upset). The church has only 190 members, but manages to do a fair amount of outreach and helping in the community. And they do seem to have a lot of areas that I could help in, and I want to be able to contribute without dealing with a lot of "committees" and "already in place" groups of women/people who are set in their ways.... Another issue is that since we moved, the church is a good 30 minutes away, which is a lot of gas money and time. Anyway, I read on here about Evangelical Lutheran, and after checking out its website, I liked what I read. And there is a rather large EL church just 10 minutes away..less actually. It has 1500 members and lots of families. Part of me wants to check it out...but new members are officially "joining" the church next week at my UCC church...and the boys really like it...and I like their Open and Affirming Stance. But I still want to check out this other church. I'm being silly, right? Edited July 23, 2012 by Halcyon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
