I Have a Church!


For some time now, I have been visiting different churches, trying to find a new church family. I finally found the perfect fit! Grace Episcopal is the church I have longed for. I have visited a few times now, though I knew the first time I walked through the door I was home. The Gothic architecture, the friendly people, the fantastic pastor, the huge, beautiful choir, amazing pipe organ, the magnificent stained glass windows, and well behaved children; it all added up for me.

Today I attended the most beautiful Easter service, and the impact will never leave me. The brass and percussion accompaniment along with the beautiful hymns and choir anthems left me with goose bumps and tears in my eyes.
The Pastor will be contacting me at the end of the week to discuss becoming a member, and I can't wait. I'm HOME!

There is just nothing like walking in a place and feeling "at home." That is the way my church feels for me. I am so happy for you Laurie! It is a beautiful church, and I am sure the music and service were amazing. :c)

I'm really happy for you, Laurie. I know what a struggle it's been. When I first looked at your post I thought it was Episcopal. That looks like a beautiful church.
