Day 7

Our Church


I really love my church. And by church I mean our home church where we worship on Sundays (although I do also love the entire church of Christ following Believers).

By the grace of God Reality does many things right. Our pastoral staff is focused on prayer, Jesus, Bible teaching, and loving. Our lead pastor (Britt Merrick) is not afraid to say it how it is. He preaches straight Bible  - the hard to hear stuff included. The worship is incredible because it is completely focused on glorifying God. But mostly importantly the members really love Jesus and consequently they love people. 

Of course, the church is made up of humans, and humans are flawed. Therefore, our church does have its flaws and problems. However, the good far outweighs the bad.  RJ and I have a life group (small group) in our home on Wednesday nights. And we have found some of our riches friendships through this group. We've also been able to share our life struggles, accept help and encouragement from people, encourage and help others ourselves, have fun together, cry together, support one another. Church should be like family. And we have really found that at Reality. We feel incredible blessed to not only be a part of something that brings us closer to Jesus but shows us Jesus through loving relationships.
