Church Membership

Today has been busy - there hasn't been one minute today that I haven't been busily trying to accomplish some sort of task.

We started out at church with a new series - today's message was all about pride, and ways to remove it from your life. Great message, and I look forward to hearing more about the future messages that we'll be hearing on "God's Pet Peeves".

From there - we got home at about noon, and had to be back at church for our membership class at 3:30... so I had three hours with which to study for my test. I used every moment, and have possibly finished with the study guide sections on english, language arts, and reading... which is 40% of the test... now I can move on to the other sections. (The subject matter of the rest of the test isn't quite as abstract - so I believe I'll move through it more quickly.)

Our membership class at church was from 3:30 - 7:30... it was a really well done informative class. We really like the pastor, and actually got to go through the class with his parents... it was a really lovely afternoon of learning what this church is about. John is officially a member now, but I'm not just yet. I haven't yet been baptized, and need to complete that before I'm officially a member of the church. They offer baptism services between April and November, and I'm planning on getting mine done this year. I do have to say that it terrifies me to be in front of people, but it's time that I take that next step... and it's coming...

That pretty much wraps up my weekend, it's been a busy one... but we've accomplished a lot, and I'm certainly ready for bed tonight!!

To all my friends with blogs: I'm a little behind because I've been focused on studying every minute that I've been home this weekend - so I'll be reading and catching up on all of your posts tomorrow... or maybe Tuesday... Just know that I'm not ignoring you - things are just crazy trying to prepare for this test that holds so much weight on my future.
