I was raised in a Christian home, and our church and church activities were always the center of our lives. I went to Sunday School, sang the choir and traveled to church revivals throughout Oklahoma with my grandparents. After I became an adult, I only attended church on Christmas and Easter, but then all of that changed 12 years ago when I received an invitation to Island United Church’s Easter Sunday Services. I was overwhelmed by the congregation’s kindness and within a few months I become a member of IUC. Life has many ups and downs and I am blessed to have my church family. Through faith and prayers, members and friends lovingly support each other, each other’s families, our community and our world.
I’ve enjoyed serving on various church committees and participating in our community events because my parents and grandparents continuously reminded me that getting involved in your church’s activities is beneficial to your spiritual journey and your continued commitment to Jesus Christ.
I feel very welcomed and it is a joy to worship here at Island United! Blessings to you and may you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith!
