Well, I tried my first new church today. Twin Lakes Church in Capitola. Wow, it was HUGE! I mean, there was an upstairs to sit too! The pastor wasn't there, he and another pastor switched for two weeks. The guest pastor was really good, but I'm interested to see the regular pastor. I enjoyed the service, but am looking forward to checking out some other churches.
One thing I had a hard time with was the scripture reading. I was one of maybe 5 people who opened their bibles. Even the pastor read from the piece of paper in the bulletin. I noticed they also had it up in power point. I guess when it is already there for you twice, why open the bible? That bothered me a tiny bit. Mostly because at Grace, Pastor Tim was always very adamant about opening out bibles, and I loved that.
Today made me Slo sick, really bad. I was really sad afterwards. Mostly I have been too busy to be sad, but then it just hit me! Can't wait to get back to visit.
I will be out of town next week with Christy, but the week after I think I will check out Santa Cruz bible church. That is also a huge church! If you know any churches up here, let me know!
