Thanks for all you help! We've been looking at a few churches in the area, but seeing as Josh usually has work on Sundays, it's been hard to go every weekend.
kensington- I know what you mean about informal. At my old church, my grandmother made me wear dress clothes and such. The service was really...boring, to be honest. There was no youth group. My cousin and I were the youth, lol. She went out of state for college and then it was just me. The first time I attended a Southern Baptist church I was taken aback. No one was wearing stuffy dress clothes! You don't have to call the pastor father (which I thought was strange, seeing as they also call God 'the Father'). Their pastor spent most of the service preaching and talking, unlike my old church where we said a bunch of strange prayers then then listened to Father Whoever preach for 10-15 minutes. It just feels happier at the Southern Baptist church. The songs are upbeat and not reminiscent of a funeral march.
JohnDB- I'd love to take a new member's class. Even though I went to church every Sunday for thirteen years, (I'm 19 now, but there was a gap where I didn't go because of some family issues) I know next to no Bible stories or general Biblical information. There's a lot I want to learn!
JERRY C- Haha, no, not swampthing! =) I know most would frown upon our living situation, but it saves him a lot of money in gas. His family lives an hour away from the college we both attend. They cannot afford to put him in a dorm, so it's either commute or stay with my mother and I. If my aunts (who are old-fashioned, deep South ladies) haven't chewed me out yet (about us living together) then I think I'll be okay lol.
