Out of Touch
Posted by Vogeler on December 1, 2007
Ever since my father-in-law planted his church this past April (www.therockwired.org), my wife and I have been members. And its great; I enjoy his messages, the style of worship, and stuff, and its exciting to get to be part of a new church.
But we came from a church with a thriving young adult population, with monthly get-togethers and fun times several times a month. We went from being part of this huge group of friends to being on the fringe of things.
Many of our friends are great about keeping in touch. We have a rotating dinner party group that gets together on major holidays, but aside from that we really don’t get together very much.
I’m not really complaining, and this isn’t aimed at anyone. We really don’t have the time or money to go out a lot (and we have a kid!!). But it still makes me sad sometimes that we don’t have that weekly fellowship like we used to at our previous church. I guess I just get lonely (thank heaven for Todd and Nathan who keep in touch a lot!!).
We would love to have a thriving young adult ministry at our new church. We are located in the Dupont area of Fort Wayne, Indiana, so if you are looking for a place to come, you are welcome!
