So I was looking back through my blog entries, and I realized that I have never put in anything about my church. We are members of Trinity Baptist Church in Westfield, IN. When we moved to Indianapolis in July of 2005 we started looking for a church. We found an independent Baptist church in north central Indianapolis called Colonial Hills Baptist Church. It has Majesty Hymns, conservative music, solid, biblical preaching, and friendly people.
The problem was that it had 800 or so friendly people. That was a little more than what we were used to (you know, kind of overwhelming). We tried several other churches in our area, but none of them were right for us for one reason or another (contemporary music, not bible based, unfriendly people, etc). One church had about seventy people, and not one child. Seriously! The youngest person in the church the day we were there was probably me (other than my kids). The church was right next door to a cemetery, and I think they did that to ease the transition.
By now it was time to enroll our two eldest kids in school, and we decided to send them to Colonial Christian School (same building as the aforementioned church). While there, they asked us if we had found a church yet. I told them that we really liked Colonial, except for the fact that we weren’t comfortable with it’s size. They said, “Why don’t you go to Trintiy Baptist Church in Westfield? It was a church plant of Colonial, and it’s just like us, except smaller.”
We went there the next Sunday, and the rest is history. Kim and I now minister in the choir, small group ensemble, and other musical things. Kim helps in the nursery, fills in for children’s church or children’s sunday school, etc. I teach adult Sunday school off and on (the pastor likes to rotate teachers in and out), and teach the kids on wednesday night every couple of months. We really enjoy going there, and the people are friendly. I taught Sunday school this past quarter on the books of Judges and Ruth. It was nice being back in front of people again. It was nice teaching from God’s Word again.
