I Love my Church because...
I love my church because...I see God in this church. When Janet and I walked into Fowler UMC three years ago for the first time, we were greeted so warmly and welcomed with open arms by many people. We instantly knew this was our new church family. It felt like home.
This church family surrounds us with love, God's love that flow through them. They help lift us up, they seek to involve us within the life of the church, and these same members help guide us in our daily walk with the Lord. Just like my own nuclear family, I feel so blessed to have a loving church family. I don't come to church to be entertained, I come here to be surrounded by God's love.
Fowler UMC is my home, the congregation is my family. When I walked through the door nine years ago, I was greeted with kindness and surrounded with warm caring. They gave me room to cry. They gave me time to pray. They wished me blessing and grace as worship ended. I could not wait for the next Sunday! Surely the Lord was in this place.
I returned--over and over again. Faith has deepened over time. Knowledge and understanding has grown. Joy has become a frequent visitor. And I live in the glow of God's grace. God is not only in this place, but has taken up His place in my heart.
