Big church on the hill

The day has finally come! Sunday we had our first official service in our new church.

It used to be the little church in the vale, now it's the big church on the hill.
I started taking photos and the more I was looking at the them, the more I realized that photos were not doing the church justice. So I just stopped taking them. But here's a few to give 
you an idea what it looks like.

Our old church could fit 130 people.  This one fits 250!

Now we have to fill it.  

But with God, all things are possible.  So it's just a matter of time before it's full.



Our old church. This was the photo we had taken for the 100th anniversary.
A few weeks ago our pastor announced that we could go write our favourite Bible verse on the floor before they covered it with the flooring.  That way if the floor was full of Bible verses then we would be standing on God's word.  We thought it was a neat idea.

So we all wrote a few verses.
My favorite verse is the one that goes, "Raise up a child in the way he will go..."

J. wrote the shortest Bible verse,  "Jesus wept."
Dave's was a bit longer.."Be still and know that I am God..."

It was great. The church floor is full of verses.

Have a Blessed Evening


  1. I LOVE the idea of writing on the floor!

  2. What a great idea to write verses on the floor! Seems once you build a bigger church it fills up fast.

  3. What a beautiful new church! I really like the idea of writing your favorite verse under the carpet.. Kind of like a time capsule type thing..

  4. Congratulations on the new church!! :)
    The bible verses on the floor is really cool!


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
