The first time my daughter, Brielle, and I attended church service, I was nervous. It was a difficult time in our lives and we really needed God. The entire congregation was so loving and we were loved and accepted immediately.
The advice I have for people looking for their home church is to find the church who welcomes you with open arms and invites you to be part of the congregation regardless of your situation. A true church will pass zero judgement and love you no matter what. The sermons will speak to you. Even if you are hesitant with your faith in the beginning, your home church will definitely prove the true power of God.
I am so thankful for FUMC. It was my mother's request that I attend just one service when I was going through a debilitating time in my life. She asked that I just give it a chance. Honestly, I was stubborn and hesitant. My soul was hardened at that point and my faith was questionable at best. However, I caved in and agreed to attend one service. That was one of the BEST decisions I have ever made. My faith has never been stronger and I'm so happy to say that my daughter also LOVES attending church! We are thriving in life now. I can honestly say FUMC has contributed significantly to that. --Joanne B.
