It was the church that she grew up in, so there are a lot of good memories there... and, in a weird way, it's hard to leave. But, we couldn't see any other way to handle the situation.

We've both gone a traditional Southern Baptist church most of our lives. At this point, we don't ever want to be associated with the denomination ever again.

This is also supported by the fact that we are Reformed... which is in direct contention with the Arminian beliefs of Southern Baptists.

We know of a few Reformed churches in the area, but if they don't work out, I think we're going to visit some Presbyterian churches.

This is a weird situation for both of us... we've never been churchless or had to find a new church home.

I would highly recommend the Anglicans/Episcopalians. I suspect in that area, they are conservative yet very gracious. They won't bother you about your personal beliefs, yet be a very supportive congregation. They would be happy to have you, with all your Biblcal knowledge and expertise, and probably want you to teach.

I have a very good friend that is Episcopalian. So, I might give it a thought... hmmm...

And you flatter me... I no expert and I've had no formal training. I'm pretty sure those type churches require that to teach.

Why? What happened? I thought you were a deacon over there or something.

No. Just a regular member.

RE: I am now churchless.
Me, I think it's a good step. First churchless, then faithless, then godless. Heck, you're practically one of us already, why not dive all the way in instead of just dipping your toe? I promise, the water's fine.
