Thankful For: Community

Over the past year, I have become extremely thankful for the community we have here in San Antonio. As I’ve mentioned before, we don’t have any family in town, but we have been extremely blessed with friendships strong enough to feel as if we were family.

I am so thankful for the community we have at Redeemer. For the wonderful women in my Bible study and how they prayed for me as I made the decision to leave my job. For our fun community group and the ways they encourage us as a couple as well as individually. For our youth group and all the ways they make me laugh and grow. For all of the sweet friendships we’ve developed with so many different people and families. We know our life here in San Antonio wouldn’t be the same without them.

I am also very thankful for the community I developed in my years at Bromley. While working alongside some truly talented people, I was able to make some wonderful friends that could make even the longest meetings more fun (trust me, that’s no small task!).

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! What are you thankful for today?

Redeemer Fall Festival

This past Sunday, Redeemer had their annual Fall Festival. This is one of their signature events of the year and it was a little extra special for Chip and I. We started attending Redeemer last year and the Fall Festival was our very first event that we did with the church. Whereas last year I was a little intimidated not knowing anyone (and a bit surprised at the number of kids running around!), this year we had fun talking with different families and playing some football with the junior and senior high youth groups. I am so thankful for the community at Redeemer and how it has shaped our last year. We had never been part of a church that was so active and while it took us a bit to get used to at first, it’s now one of the things we love most about Redeemer.

We are so thankful for the relationships we are developing and families we are slowly getting to know within Redeemer’s community. If you’re looking for a church in San Antonio, come check them out!
