It’s so hard to believe my son attended his first VBS this year! Just last year he was a little guy in my belly while I went to VBS.
Not the easiest beginning…
But it got better. He even managed to make a buddy!
I really encourage everyone to find a church family. The people we worship with are such a blessing in our lives. God created the church to be a place of encouragement, and a place of safety, a little piece of His kingdom on earth (Matthew 16:18; Romans 15:4-7) . If you currently don’t have this in your life, you’re missing out on a great gift! I know it can be intimidating to go to a new place, to even start to think about what to look for in a place of worship. The first and most important thing to decide is if the group is teaching the truth about God’s word. Then you want to be in a place you can give of yourself, and be encouraged. Don’t feel that you have to dash the first time you don’t feel loved, unless of course people are out right going against God, see if you can make a difference where you are.
Summer is a great time to try out congregations. Many places are offering free Vacation Bible School with classes for children and adults. The whole family can share the experience. Regardless of time of year, there is no time like the present!
If you ever have questions about the church family, salvation, anything at all, feel free to reach out to me. I’ll be happy to help any way I can!!!
