It's about time!

I am proud to say my husband and my relationship is built on a foundation of Christ!   
We  have tried many different churches after moving to Seattle ....  


We loved one church, but were a little thrown off by their belief of speaking in tongues.  We were involved with another church for about a year and volunteered as small group leaders for the junior high.  After a lot of thought, we felt led to another really small church (about 300) that we have been attending for the last year and a half, were part of a young married group, and unfortunately recently haven't felt spiritually challenged.


So, we tried this new church (about 4,000), and I couldn't be happier with the end result.
It reminds me so much of my church back home, 
and I was in awe from the second I walked in the sanctuary.
I was in tears ... both weeks during worship and felt the inspiration 
and the Lord calling this as our church home.  


I was ready to place membership immediately, 
but we are going to check things out a little more first.
We are getting involved in Groups, which change quarterly,
and it will be a great way for us to jump head first and get plugged in. 


This is what we have been missing out on!


I am really excited to embark on this new adventure at Eastlake Community Church,
and I just wish that it didn't take us three years to find.

Sometimes the wait is worth it! Glad you found a curch you can truly call home!

We are also in the middle of this--so I know how it is. Don't let the belief of speaking in tongues throw you off--grown up around it my whole life and it truly is a powerful tool to pray for things you simply dont have words for.

Laura said...

I'm so glad you found "the right one"! :) That's so important. Best of luck.

That is awesome news Kelsey!! My church family is essential in my life. I just got back from attending Women of Faith with 25 of them and it was such an awesome experience. Our church has been our family through years when we didn't live close to any of our actual family. Good for you guys!

Kassie said...

I'm so happy for you! Finding the right church is so important, and yet incredible difficult. I've been here a year, and haven't really found the right one--and now I'm getting ready to move ugh!

Kelly said...

Oh I am so glad that you found a church to call home, I love it when you find a church that you really feel like you can belong and grow in your relationship with Christ. I love your blog, it is so pretty and thanks for stopping by mine!

I bet it is hard to keep up with the rain in Seattle, but glad my rainy post helped a bit! ;)

Arrie said...

Great news sister! We are happy for you both and hope it enriches your life in ways you never imagined! LOVE

Kellie said...

It is so hard to find such a great church that you just love! We had to try out a few until we finally felt at HOME! I am a part of one of those secret shopping websites, but have yet to do a shop. I was worried that my time would be worth more than the $10 commission, but I'm thinking about giving it a try. I live in a small town so all the shops are more than 20 miles away, but I guess I could plan to do them while I go up there for groceries or whatever. Love your blog!

katie + bret said...

Yay! It is so important to be plugged in at church. I'm teaching the 2&3 year olds this coming quarter and I can't wait!

Kristin said...

We're on the hunt too. Congrats on finding yours!

Finding the right church is so hard. When we move, Husby and I will be going through that very same thing. I am so happy you two finally found somewhere you can call home and hope that it works out!

d.a.r. said...

Kristen Sara said...

Hooray!! My friend and I are going on a mission over the next few weeks to try to find a new church in our college town. I am so hopeful I find one as fabulous as the one you found!!
