We've recently completed membership interviews with several people and I've asked some of them to talk about why they've become part of the Christ Church family. Here's Amos and Kimberly Snyder's story:
When we first came to Christ Community, Kimberly and I both knew there was something different about this church compared to the other churches we had been to in Athens. We both wanted to find a church where God would offer opportunities for us to get involved as well as have others invest themselves into our lives and marriage. We decided to come back and each week we could not find a reason to try another church. We heard the gospel every week and the people in the family were always welcoming.
After we attended a community group within the church we knew this was our new home. We were not only challenged every week by God’s word, we also saw how this church was truly seeking to do God’s will. That’s what we wanted to be a part of. Kimberly and I both know how dangerous it is to settle for ordinary and we believe this church wants to fight against this concept. God has continually been working in our hearts through the preaching and the people of this church. We do not want to settle for anything less. We are excited to be a part of this family and see how God is going to change our lives through it.
