Dh and I went to the Cedar Ridge Community Church today. We actually went last week, too.
Last week, the sermon was fantastic. It gave me great things to think about, and put things in a way that I hadn’t thought of before. We brought ds to the nursery, and I felt like they had a fantastic set up–if ds needed us, we had a number that would flash on the screen if there were any problems.
This week, I felt like people were super friendly. The ‘sermon’, such as it was, wasn’t as interesting, but it was probably very useful for regular attenders. And I can see how it would be good to do something like that to make sure that everyone knows what’s going on. There was a ‘7 minutes on Cedar Ridge’ afterwards, where we learned a little bit about the vision of the church, and we got a gift bag! With chocolate! hahaha… And a coffee mug! And a pen made out of recycled materials! The music this week was also just fantastic. I found the lyrics to be really stirring.
I don’t know where we’ll wind up deciding to make our church home. On the one hand, I’m anxious to get there, because I feel like volunteering and being involved in a church is not only rewarding, but also helps unite you with other church members and draw closer to Christ.
