I was raised in church and have been involved in church my whole life. Growing up, I took confirmation classes and joined the church. After college, I moved to New Albany where I met my husband. I began attending church with him. It was then that my heart became heavy and I realized that I was lost. I came to the realization that I had completely “missed the boat.”
This really began to trouble me and weigh heavy on my heart. In the Spring of 1997, our church had a Lay Renewal weekend. On a back pew alone, I asked Jesus into my heart. I felt like the weight of the world was lifted off of me. I never went down to the front of the church and made my decision public. Finally, after all these years, I want to complete my decision by being baptized.
I am so thankful for this church family. You have welcomed my family with open arms and I would just like to say thank you for everything.
