My first Sunday Here

David shared this testimony last Sunday...

My first Sunday here was like nothing I had ever experienced. I was surrounded by some of the most loving people I had ever met and the sermon was drenched in the gospel. I decided that morning that you would be my new home and I never left. That was years ago.

Now God is calling me to serve in the Air Force and it’s difficult to communicate what you have meant to me. I certainly look forward to what God has planned for me in the service. And please pray for me!

Pray that God would bring me other Christians to fellowship with and that together we can be a light to the military community.

Yet I will always remember you.

Some of you have become like mothers to me, others like fathers and brothers and sisters. Your love for me was part of how God changed me. I won’t soon forget.

I will also miss having the youth of this church running and giving me a hug every Sunday when they saw me. A single man needs to be part of families. It helps ground us. It helps us feel like we are part of something bigger than ourselves. Thank you for sharing with me. I won’t forget this either.

You are my family.

You make God look great.

Please keep loving men like me. Make room for us in your lives and this church.  God is using you. It makes all the difference.
