Born Again

I did not grow up in the church. The early years of my life I was raised by my mom, who was a single parent. She told me the only thing she regrets in regards to raising me, was that we did not go to church. Of course I went to the occassional Easter service, but as a child and young adult I never fully understood what it meant to have Christ in my life.

I knew that my husband had grown up going to church and when we married he expressed his desire to continue going with his family. We began going, but at that time I was not fully committed and we bounced around from church to church for a while. Eventually, we let our busy lives separate us from the church and we found ourselves not attending at all.
It's so easy to let life get in the way of things that are important, you begin to loose focus on what really matters...but God works in mysterious ways. Once we moved to Mt.Pleasant we began going to Seacoast Church and from there things have just fallen in to place.

The sermons are so uplifting and it feels good to be a part of something so big and spirit filled. We have become active, joining Bible Studies , meeting people- people who want to learn about and grow with the Lord as we do. We love Seacoast and our children love Seacoast...even the 12 yr. old. It's so awesome that I just had to share!
