My favorite part about my church family is that I’ve been going to this church for about three years now, and it feels like I’ve been here my whole life. I’ve been a part of about three different churches in my lifetime. All three have made an impact on me and helped shape me as a person.
The First Pres community has been my family in Coeur d’Alene when I was struggling to find where I fit in. I am grateful for that in the deepest sense! The people of the church have been there to teach me and accept me as part of a bigger family when I needed it most. You all have been there to love, accept and support me in whatever endeavors I face next, and I’m eternally grateful.
Because of the circumstances of today, my summer internship ended up being much of a rocky road. I can walk away, though, knowing that no matter where I go next, I can always come back to a loving home and community.
