We had a blast yesterday apple picking! Can you tell? We invited our friends, and there were a whole lot more of us than I expected. We only planned this trip last Thursday, so it was last minute. But that's sometimes how we roll. It was a perfect fall day. We hung out at the orchard for a couple of hours enjoying the time we had together. That's one thing that's hard about not having a building. Creating time to just hang out is logistically more difficult. But we try to create ways to spend time together. Because we like hanging out.
God didn't create us to be boring robots. He wants us to enjoy our lives and enjoy our time together. Community is important to us, because God created us to crave meaningful relationships. We're like a family. Well, some of us are family, but that's besides the point. I'm not related to anyone outside of my immediate family. But I feel like these people are my family. And that's a really cool thing.
If you'd like to have some community in your life, we'd love for you to become part of the family! Go here to see some ways that you can check us out. And if you're wondering what worship on Sunday mornings is like, go here. We would love to have you!
