New Members Billy And Mackenzie
Last Sunday we welcomed Billy and Mackenzie as new members of our church. This is what they shared...
We have been married for close to two years now. I am a high school teacher and boys basketball coach at Huntington Beach High School. Mackenzie is a Dental Hygienist here in Orange.
We checked out a couple different churches in the area. We were really searching for a place where we could get connected and feel a sense of community. One of the benefits of living in Orange is that there are so many awesome places for food! We found ourselves on yelp almost everyday looking for new food spots. So, Billy had the idea to yelp churches in the area, just for fun. And we happened upon Sovereign Grace!
After researching some of the statements of belief on the website, we came for a visit and immediately felt overwhelmed by how welcoming all of you were. We had multiple couples in the church introduce themselves to us and invite us to lunch. We loved that the teaching was straight from the Word of God. We also loved that worship was so gospel-centered. I think Billy was hooked because we sang a Dustin Kensrue song.
After a few more visits on Sunday and a couple of Wednesday nights at small group, we decided that this would be our home church. We are so blessed by all of you and your commitment to being the hands and feet of Jesus. We want to be as much of an encouragement to you as you have been to us. We are so excited to officially be a part of this church family and to “do life” with you guys!
