For years, my family has attended the same small church.
I’m not just talking about just my immediate family though.
My sisters plus mother go to that church also. We have for years. It’s a terrible country church with a small plus terrible congregation plus sometimes I wonder how the church survives. With a little help, I guess, but for example, last Winter time my sister got married in our little church. The week before the birthday ceremony, the church started having complications with the central heating system. We live in a subtropical area plus heat is provided by heating coils installed in central cooling system units. Since our winters are short plus mild, that’s all all of us really need here. But, the week before my sister’s birthday, the heating coil went out on the church’s cooling system component plus the space heating systems were brought out. We couldn’t use space heating systems for my sister’s birthday but it was going to be in the fifty degree range that day plus that is cold for us. Yet, my sister was determined not to change the place at such a late date. So, I went on our local public social media place plus asked for help for our little church. There really are some wonderful people out there plus a local Heating, Ventilation plus A/C specialist responded to my post the same day. He provided to do the work for free plus even promised a discount on parts. The heating coil didn’t really cost all that much plus the day before my sister’s birthday, the heat was up plus running in the church again. This is how the church gets by, I guess.
