50th Anniversary of the little church in the woods

This past weekend the church where Hubs and I attend celebrated it's 50th Anniversary.

What an amazing celebration it was. What started out as the little church in the woods is now the big church in the small woods.

Our church has had seven pastors in the past 50 years and of the seven, four were present this weekend. How awesome it was to have them there.

There were so many people in attendance this weekend. I was completely blown away.

Hubs has been attending the little church for 27 years, 14 of those years have been with me. I was baptized in this church and so was R1.

It was wonderful to catch up with everyone. I laughed so hard my sides ached and smiled so much my cheeks hurt.

I love my church. I love my church family and friends. Our preachers wife is one of my best friends.

I feel so blessed to have been a part of this weekend. God started this journey 50 years ago. I can't wait to see what else He has in store for the little church in the woods for the next 50 years and beyond.

It sounds like a homecoming of sorts! I'm glad you're in a good church & pray that the next 50 years will produce even more fruit!
