We spent last Sunday at two services at Grace Bible Church. Grace has a special place in our hearts. I went to school there from second grade to graduation. I played basketball, soccer, and volleyball there. It’s where I learned most of what I know. We have some very good friends there.

One summer while I was in college I did an internship at Grace. Janell and I worked with the youth group during the summer, and it’s where we got one of our first chances to do ministry.

Janell and I also got married at Grace. I remember staring down the aisle from the front of the church to see my bride meet me at the altar.

Our oldest son went to Kindergarten at Grace, too. As we got out of the van this Sunday, he whispered in my ear, “It’s weird to go back to where you used to go to school.” I replied, “I know exactly how you feel.”

Grace has also been a supporting church for many years. It is great to have them as part of our team.

It’s fun to go back and relive memories while sharing about what we are trusting God for in the future. God has used the people of Grace for many years to influence our lives, and we are happy to have had the chance to see many of them this past week.
