Yesterday we went to our first church service here. We enjoyed so much about the little place we went. There were about 40-45 people (more children than adults!!) and it was an integrated service which means the children of all ages stay in service (no children's ministry). What a wonderful environment!!! An 11 year old girl came and sat beside our daughter and shared her hymnbook with her throughout the song service. In just the short time after church, the kids met so many children and had fun playing while we talked with other couples. There are 3 men that go there that work at hubby's work. It was nice meeting their families :) Everyone was soooooo friendly, even the children. We had young kids coming up to us introducing themselves and asking our names. All the kids were so well behaved through the service. Only a few little ones (under 2) went upstairs with their mommies during the service. They have a room with baby monitors so you can still hear the message if you have to take your child out. The pastor during his message would stop at an important part and address the children, explaining what something meant, or how it would affect them as they get older etc. It was just sooooo neat! We really enjoyed it. Our daughter asked when we were going back....I think they liked it too!!
