Today, Scott and Dad were among 16 men inducted as deacons at church this morning. I am so very proud of them both! Of course, Dad served many years as a deacon at our church at home, but it was special to see him and Scott both selected to serve.
Our church is growing such that we started 2 Sunday AM services several months ago. The second service was so early that the attendance wasn't enough to alleviate the seating problems of the regular service. Today, we started a compromise - where church service began at 8:30am, followed by Sunday School at 9:45am. Remember that we live 30 non-speeding minutes from church and used to leave at 8:20am - now we will leave at 7:50am. This is a feat for our family! We made it this morning. Mom says that it will be nothing after a few weeks, and she is right. But it is something until we get used to it!
The hardest thing for the kids is having services first, bible class second. They weren't sure what to think! Come to think of it, neither did we!
