Sometimes change is difficult, and knowing which decision to make is tough... but this time it's been so easy. Mike and I felt the Lord releasing us from the church we've been at for about a year and a half to search out a better fit for us. The first new church we visited, we both felt really clearly was a no. Then we went to the next one. We loved the worship service, were really blessed and challenged by the teaching, and we met a couple who invited us to their small group. We decided to go ahead and check that out too, and we absolutely know that God has led us here! It's such a great fit, and in the few short weeks that we've gotten involved, we have found new friends and soaked up the fellowship and great Bible study together. God is good.
There was some hesitation to uproot ourselves right now when we know that within the next year, maybe even 6 months, we will almost surely be moving again. But no matter how short this season may be, we are so encouraged to have such clear direction from the Lord, and to be able to connect and grow with a local church. As it turns out, almost everyone in our small group is in a time of transition right now! Community Church of Chesapeake is where we're at, if anyone is curious! :)
