Most colonists were there more than once over the period of a month and all colonists were there once a month.

Lebanon United Methodist Church Located in the small, rural town of Neeses, South Carolina, is the quaint little building known as Lebanon United by the members of the church. Consisting mostly of elderly couples, much like my personal church, this church was not too farfetched for me to enjoy. A lot of families fill up the pews on Sunday mornings’; one of those families being my son’s girlfriends. At least I know that my future in-laws are church going! I can personally say that I had never been to any church service other than my own and when my son invited me to join him and the family for service one Sunday, I was of course hesitant.
You have good programs and degrees based off of my career interests. As well as, the fact that you guys are a Christian-based university. When I went to the Patriot Preview, this past year, the very first thing that we did as a group was worship in the chapel. It set the mood for the whole day. As we pulled up the long road leading to the chapel, I remember thinking about how beautiful Dallas Baptist University’s campus was.
The Mormon Church believes that genealogy is about linking families together and has certain religious ordinances like baptism. They believe that they can baptize the deceased by proxy in their sacred temples. They enjoy learning about their ancestors and gathering records, documenting their existence including birth, marriage, death, military as well as collecting and storing them. It is a concerted effort by the church and children are indoctrinated very early in the importance to know about family. The result is the largest holding and collection of genealogical records in the world in Salt Lake City, Utah.
As I walk through the doors hundreds of memories flood into my mind as the smell of yesterday’s incense hits my nose. In a way I grew up here from baptism, first communion, to confirmation.

The church is large and ornate for where it is placed; a little town of roughly 200 people. The inside is magnificent with intricately carved wooden pillars and elaborate paintings of Bible stories on the dome ceiling.

A measly twenty-five miles from Tufts, I have grown up in the town of Natick. My parents chose Natick for numerous reasons, but what I love about my hometown is its welcoming sense of community. Every year when I participate in Natick’s Fourth of July parade, I easily identify my friends, teammates and co-workers amongst the crowds cheering me on. When I help at the library, I work alongside the same librarians who read Cat in the Hat to me almost a decade earlier. However, the most essential aspect of living in Natick has been my church.
When I was 20 years old, I decided to attend church services for the first time. King Street Church was the first church I went to and it is in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. There were three different types of worship services for different groups of people. One service was very traditional and most older people attended that one. I chose the 9:45 worship service because it was open to all age groups and the younger people attended.
Begin around 11am with 10-15 minutes of worship singing, then announcements, followed by an special aspect of the service like a video a special song etc.… The sermon lasts about 25-35 minutes and we close with prayer and one final worship song.
