Oh kitty, I'm newer to the Church than you. I only started going to Church in March of this year. BUT, my parents did raise me in Christ's name, so I had that advantage.

Thank you for reassuring me ladies. I hope we can raise our Children well, so they WANT to serve God.

Sorry I haven't replied, I've been out of town for a week and a half, and I only hopped onto the internet twice for about 10 minutes each time. Didn't have much time for replying.

So what's new with you ladies?

I'm finding a new Church. I'm kind of excited, but kind of not..

we are struggling with our church atm its just not moving forward and growing spritiually in the way we feel God is taking us so are a bit undecided as to what to do about it yet. We may well be moving house in Feb anyway quite some distance away which would necessitate a change of church anyway and in the meanwhile have found some great pastors who share their sermons free online that are giving us scripture to think about and talk through together

Oh really? Do you mind if I ask where online that is? I wouldn't mind listening to it. Hopefully we can find a great new Church. Ours right now is just not good for us. I'm pretty upset with one of the people in my Church right now. Plus we don't agree with some of the stuff they preach and really belive in. Its time to move.

i hope you both find wonderful churches! the first one we went to was not for us. the pastor used a lot of guilt to try and make people do what he thought was best. if i am doing something for the Lord it needs to be because i love Him and want to and because it brings me joy to serve Him. we are at one now that is aweome.

we have been happy at our church for so long its just sad that its not moving forwards and seems to have stagnated because people are comfortable with " how its always been done"

That would be hard when a Church isn't moving forward Lynnikins. I guess its just time for you guys to then.


We're looking for a Non Denominational Church. We were attending A United Pentecostal, which has GREAT Sermons, and the Holy Spirit is SO strong there Each and every Sunday, BUT, there are some guidelines to that denomination of Christianity, that we just don't agree with. Also now there is added drama there, so its time to move on.

But to be honest, I don't even know anything about the different Denominations of Christianity..

I grew up Baptist which is a bit more traditional and conservative than the Pentecostal side of the church . the Baptist church elect their leaders and some elders but almost every decision goes to vote with the whole membership which we feel in our church is meaning the pastor can't property lead and move the church forward as the majority of the members are ppl who have been there for decades and are resistant to change which is bad cause we have a great pastor who has great vision for the church. we will probably end up in an elim or non denominational church next as the ministry we are getting involved in the other couple are at a great elim church
