Family?!

As I mentioned in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I went to worship with my newest church group, at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church (WEBC).

I must say that I've recently spent a fair amount of time there, with brothers and sisters in the Lord.

On the last couple of Thursday evenings, I joined the group who were doing Bible study, together.  Okay, they don't call it Bible study, but that is indeed what it is.

Then, this past Saturday I joined a small group of people.  Just as I had last month!  Together, we are doing a personal evangelism course.

This past Saturday was slightly different.  You see, last month, I thought the church had supplied our lunch that we enjoyed together, prior to beginning the course.

Whether this was the case or not, didn't matter to me.  This time, I brought some food to contribute to the meal!

We had a wonderful time of fellowship on both Thursday evening, and again on Saturday.  Thank You, Lord!

I appreciate feeling like I am welcomed into this group of believers.  And, I am thankful I relate well to all who worship on SONday's.

How I praise God for this!

Even though I know some people from the past, I am still getting to know some of the people, at this time.  But, one thing I can say is, that they welcome with open arms, all who attend. 

For this, I am grateful!

Not just for me.  But, also for a friend who has come to worship there, a couple of times.  This friend told me they felt not just comfortable worshipping with this group, but also felt very welcomed!

Of course, this is the way it should be.  After all we are all members of the body in Christ.

Just as God told us, in Romans 12:5, "So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another."

I must admit that I've worshipped with church groups where I did not feel welcome.  And, I've worshipped with groups where a few people reached out in Christian love to welcome me.

But, never before have I felt so welcome, as I have since I have worshipped at WEBC!

Thank You, Lord.  I praise You, for answering my prayer.

You knew my heart's desire was to feel not just welcomed, but to be able to truly become part of a new worshipping group, where I felt I was part of the family.

The family of God.


Until next time...
