When I walk into the Garden of Eden Church, it’s like a breath of fresh air. The pastor is so enthusiastic, joyful, and energetic. On an early Sunday morning, it’s what I need when I am only on one cup of Earl Grey.

I don’t know of any family that isn’t dysfunctional these days.
My friends greet me when I walk in, and I love being known to these dear people.
Yes, it’s a church. I sit in a chair. In front of me, there are Bibles, papers, and a place to put the empty communion cup. It’s not a religion in the sense that people are using the word, ‘religion,’ these days.
Some people say, “I have to go to church.”
I say, “I GET to go to church.”
I get to learn about my Lord and Savior.
I get to sing with my brothers and sisters.
If I were to die, someone knows my name.
But it does matter what you believe of Jesus. Get to know Him with me. Join my small group. It starts soon. Email me if you would like to join. All are welcome.
