Tammy

Your home fellowship looks so neat and fun!!

The praying in a small group compared to coperate prayer must be so much personal.I am sure hymns are well sung.Of course the food part looks yummy!!

Are you only doing this now or still part of a church?

Tom

Hi Tammy -
Both families had a transition period, but we are now in this new fledgling church "full-time." Please pray for the Lord's protection and Biblical wisdom as we go forward. Thanks!

Your fellowship sounds wonderful! How neat to meet in such a personal setting!

Kathie

Thanks for a wonderful post, Deb. The pictures bring back many warm memories of home-churching. Curious ~ what hymnal do you use? Wish you lived closer so we could put your log cabin quilt top on my frame ~ with all our daughters, we'd have it quilted in a day! Many blessings.

Deb

Kathie, we just recently ordered a box of Trinity Hymnals and have enjoyed using them these past few Sundays.

Having an old-fashioned quilting bee sure sounds like fun! Wish there was a way to make it happen! :)

I'm just curious if you are intending to actually start a new church where you will outgrow the home and build a church building, or are you wanting to keep it in the homes?

My husband and I have talked before about how things are going in churches today and at some point we may have to start having our own services at home like the Apostles.

Sharon - we regard our fellowship, albeit small, as our new church. We intend to keep meeting in homes because of the example set in the NT. If/when we numerically grow to the point of not being able to fit in any homes, we would ask the Lord's wisdom on how best to split us up into two smaller home-based churches. Regarding your discussion with your husband on your situation, we can certainly understand your thinking. We would just encourage you to pray and attempt to appeal to the leadership in your existing fellowship to see if the Lord would use you to turn them around. If that doesn't happen and you decide it's wise to start a new fellowship, we would also encourage you to do it with other families/individuals if possible, and ask the Lord to raise up biblical leadership for oversight and protection. Grace to you...
