On Sunday, we welcomed Jessica as a new member. She shared with us why she is glad to call Sovereign Grace Church “home."
I was a member and on staff at a large church. It was at that church where I became a Christian. It was there where I discovered the value of community and discipleship. It was there where I encouraged, loved, and challenged. I was deeply connected. It was home.
But a little over year ago I knew that it was time for me to find a new home. I just didn’t feel like I was growing spiritually anymore but I wanted go hold on because it was all I had ever known. I was torn and confused.
I shared this with a friend of mine and he invited me to Sovereign Grace. I agreed and visited. Of course I was nervous because I hadn’t been the new person at church in a very long time. But I was warmly greeted as entered and even invited to go to someone’s home for lunch. I was taken aback at everyone’s warmth and genuineness. It was overwhelming in the best way.
I visited other churches trying to find a new home but would go back to Sovereign Grace. There’s just something about this church.
I joined a small group, attended fellowship events, and made incredible friendships here.
I am so thankful that God in this season of my life has me at his very church and I am so excited to be a part of it.
I am growing here, I am challenged here, I have community here, and I am loved and encouraged by others here. This is home.
