Seven Things I Like About Our Church

1.  Pastor Tom – He’s a good preacher and pastor and friend.  He’s led by God and his preaching is Bible-based.

2. Monthly Covered Dish Lunches- Once a month, we have a covered dish lunch after the Sunday service.  It’s fun to visit with everyone and share food.

3.  The Sanctuary – It’s an old church – small – registered as a historic site.  It is beautiful.

4.  Holy Communion the first Sunday of each month

5.  Edna Mae, Willie, Cherry Lane and Betty – Some of the ladies in the church who always go out of their way to greet us and talk to us about whatever is going on.  They are also fantastic cooks, and I’m hoping they’ll help me with some canning next summer.

6.  Joyce, Pastor Tom’s wife, who teaches our Sunday School class and also plays the piano.  Her piano-playing and cheerfulness would be enough to make me want to be a part of the church – even without all the other pluses.

7.  We’re fortunate to have many members who are talented with wonderful voices and other musical talents.  That includes both Pastor Tom and Joyce, along with members who are part of nationally known singing groups (We ARE right outside of Nashville – Country Music USA).  So the music at church is phenomenal.

    Sounds good, Carol. I would like to visit sometime and hear that music. I love John Wesley’s instructions for singing (which are still printed in the front of every UM Hymnal.)
    Among other directions for singing, he says to “sing lustily and with good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half asleep, but lift up your voice with strength.”

    We got to church regularly as well. It’s harder now to get organized in the morning with an active 19 mos old toddler. Sounds like you belong to a nice community.

    My Sunday Seven #1 is up too. Could I use this posting to request being added to the blog roll?

    Thanks and have a great week!

    Just got back from our church so am feeling really mellow and certainly understand why you enjoy your church. How blessed you are to have such a caring community of bleivers that you can fellowship with on a weekly basis. I might have to “borrow your idea on week!”.
