“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord”
~Acts 3:19~

We left at 7:50 to travel down to Girard. Dad was filling in for a local pastor this morning. When we arrived inside the kids said it was like stepping into a doll house. It was so small and tiny that you felt instantly at home, like you could take your sleeping bag, pillow, and blanket and make a cozy sleeping space next to the altar. These Sunday local church adventures are my favorite.

There was Sunday School for little ones, three or four that I saw. We walked next door to the basement where they normally hold Bible class. There was a woman there. She said there’s usually at least an elder who comes. The four boys sat in the metal chairs at the table, and my daughter and I sat on the softer pew against the wall. The pastor picked up at the end of Acts chapter 2.

The elder did join us toward the middle of Acts 3. In church they had a lady in charge of running the iPad. They don’t have an organist so they use a special program. We caused a brief kerfuffle when the kids and I didn’t get up when it was our turn for communion. They dismiss themselves and were done in three passes. I was confused then at first but the pastor showed me where to go.
