Finding a Home Church

Hi, my name is Kelly Wood. My family moved to our current town just over a year ago and has finally joined an excellent church. My husband Rick and I didn't want to rush into going to just any church. We have two young children who we hope will grow up in a well rounded atmosphere. We wanted to make sure there were programs that would offer them spiritual guidance and growth. Rick and I enjoy being active in church activities and on committees, so it was important that all the pieces fit together so that the entire family would be able to give and receive God’s blessings within our community. We visited many churches over the past year before making a decision. I would like to share some of our experiences with you.
