Gratitude February – Day 6

Today I’m thankful for…

My Church Family!

For IBC. We came across a church poster by happenstance, decided to visit the next Sunday in what we thought will be a temporary arrangement. Well, that temporary arrangement has become home. Every Sunday here feels like a big warm hug.

For Graceville Christian Centre. I chuckle whenever I remember what led me to GCC for the first time. I had just moved to a new city and was looking for a church to call home. I visited some great churches and liked most of them, but none really felt like home. And then in a random conversation with my friend she mentioned that at the church her sister attended there was this lady who sold delicious jollof rice after service.

Well, the next Sunday my friend and I got dressed, headed to GCC to worship and very importantly buy said delicious jollof rice.

I don’t remember if we actually bought the rice, but I found myself going there the next Sunday, and the next, and every Sunday and Wednesday for another 5 years, until we moved out of town. I can’t say enough about how my time at GCC helped shape my adult life. It’s also the place where I met my husband.

And for Christ Family Ministries! The church family that was so instrumental in molding my teenage and early adult years. I have not met a more consistent group of people! I’m thankful for you all, and through time and distance you remain some of my dearest people.

What are you thankful for today?
