Perfect Fit

It is hard to believe we have been in Oklahoma for a year already. My how time flies...the fact that Adam has been gone for almost 6 of the the last twelve months has a lot to do with it.

We are really settling into our life here in Oklahoma. The house feels like home, the kids have all acclimated to their new lives here, we have a great network of friends, but by far the thing we love most about the past year has been our church, Henderson Hills. In the last 12 years we have been actively involved in many churches and some have been better than others but Henderson Hills is the reason we are so happy here in Oklahoma. I know the day will come when we have to move, but it will be hard to leave HHBC.

You may wonder why we love it so much, let me share.

1. First and foremost, they have Diet Coke on tap and FREE REFILLS! That would be enough to convince me to attend.

2. They Blog about events as they happen, how great is that. Emma is at Kid's Kamp and I can log on and see what is happening.

3. They produce their own YouTube videos. This is a funny one for the recent high school camp.

4. They have thier own version of Extreme Home Makeover.

OK, I realize the above are cool and all, but are they really reasons to join a church?

5. The teaching is Biblical and Relevant.

6. The body is vibrant and reaches out to serve others. When we were new and Adam was deployed to the Middle East they stepped in to serve us and meet our needs although we were virtually unknown. Watch our story here, Easter Sunday April 8th and see how the church reached out to us.

7. The Children's Ministry is amazing and the kids are learning soo much!

I could go on and on but I won't.

It is just such a blessing to us to be involved in such an amazing place. We are so thankful to have such a wonderful place to worship. If you ever make it out to Oklahoma please come with us and see for yourself what a great place it is.

Great video. If you remember early on when you guys got to LPBC, it was similar, especially our SS Class. When I was deployed in 2003, Mel was WELL taken care of. The difference was, you guys were BRAND NEW and they still took care of you like that. What an awesome experience for the kids. They can see what a church family is all about.

That's wonderful that you've found a "perfect fit" for your family and church. It's hard moving around so much and finding that. We had a perfect fit in Alabama with our church and it was so hard to leave because of that. They had a great childrens program as well. My daugther went through confirmation there and still talks to her mentor often. We haven't yet found our fit here, but we hope to soon!

It's wonderful to be such a great part of a church like that. I must admit, I like the Diet Coke idea, any lime with that? You keep tempting me to come vist....hehe

A good, Bible-teaching and -believing church is so important! So glad you have found a wonderful home church.

One of these days, we'll have to get together! :-)
