the Gang discovered that there's more to Sunday mornings.....
than just sleeping in ;D
Ever since we started going to Fellowship Church in Dallas about 8 years ago, we have been addicted to evening worship services! And up until our recent move to Georgia, we've been lucky enough to find churches in each place we've lived that has offered either a Saturday or a Sunday evening service (and sometimes both).
With so many people in the family to get ready to go, it's always been an easy way for us to make it to church with much less stress!
When we learned we were moving to the Atlanta area, we were ecstatic to hear that Andy Stanley was a pastor in our immediate area, and we would have access to one of his satellite campuses! My mom has been following his father, Charles Stanley, for many years, and she was convinced we would love Andy.
Unfortunately, none of the campuses offer the evening services that we've become accustomed to. In fact, it doesn't seem to be something that any of the churches in our area offer. So today, for the first time in years, we got our gang ready and headed to church......
on Sunday MORNING ;D
And man was it WORTH it! We LOVED the church and the music (non-traditional rock band style with amazing vocalists!), but we REALLY loved Andy! What a great service! Entertaining, enlightening, and biblically sound.......what an amazing teacher he is! His message went on for over 45 minutes, and I was thoroughly impressed with all of the scripture that he was able to draw from and include in his teaching. Definitely not your typical sermon!
And there is absolutely no doubt that, come next Sunday, we will drag our weary gang out of bed, into the van, and 20 miles down the road to do it all over again!
And as I posted on Facebook earlier today.....now I know why God put us in Georgia :D
