Sunday Excursion

After a busy Saturday it was nice to have Sunday to rest and to worship. Marvin and I are members of First Bible Church of Decatur.

Here is a picture of our church from the church website....that is why it has Maps at the bottom!!:) Of course I hope all churches are maps for seekers to find their way to Jesus.

Our church has a summer schedule that is  neat. For six weeks every summer we do not have Sunday School. We just have worship service and it gives the whole church a chance to worship together including the children from kindergarten up to senior citizens.  Our church has recently founded a Madison Campus. Madison is a suburb of Huntsville, Alabama. This once small town is growing by leaps and bounds. And where there are lots of people it is an opportunity to share the gospel.  Our pastor encourages us to visit the Madison church whenever we can to encourage the folks there. Our Sunday School class decided to take him up on his suggestion. But before heading to church Sunday morning we stopped here for breakfast.

There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant near the church so we left Decatur bright and early for a nine a.m. breakfast. We had quite a large group and we all enjoyed the food and fellowship. And I must say a big thank you to the waitress who took care of our table. She did a great job!!

My dear husband decided to go all out for breakfast!!

The ladies enjoyed browsing around the store while the men paid up at the cash register.

And then to James Clements High School in Madison where we had morning worship in the school auditorium. I must say that high schools of today look nothing like the high school I attended!! They are huge. Our class packed a "pew" or a whole row of seats for the morning service which included communion. It was a very special time of fellowship with our Sunday School class. We really feel more like family than just friends! And that is a very nice thing.

John loves the BIG Cracker Barrell breakfast, too.
Hope your week is going well.

Your church building is lovely, and how nice to have close friends to worship with each Sunday (and in between!). Cracker Barrel has a wonderful breakfast menu! It's my favorite meal of the day, so I always go "all out" too!

Arlene, what a delight to visit your "daughter" church nearby and Cracker Barrel too!
