On Sunday we started our search for a church home up here. It really is a new experience for both of us. We both have done the church search before but it was when we were younger and our parents were mainly in charge. When we came to College Station (he a little earlier than me) we both knew we would go to A&M C of C. So we are starting out by looking in the phone book. We started with the first one on the list: The Church of Christ at Waukegan.
Coming up here I knew we would probably be going to a much smaller church than I am use to. The smallest church I have been a member of is probably A&M which is around 1,000 people. In the service at Waukegan I counted 30-35 people. Quite a differenece for me but it was a very enjoyable service. Before and after the service we had members coming up to meet and greet us. Everyone was so nice and invited us back. We found some people who had grown up in Texas--we are finding that is a common thread up here. The songs during the service were probably our favorite part. Every song had a wonderful amount of soul within it.
We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly at this church but I think we may need something a little bit bigger. I really enjoy getting involved with the Children's ministry and I really didn't see too many kids. We will continue our search and find something that fits us well.
