She, in turn, wrote the following thank you note to FUMCR:
Whitney also added:
I am so proud and humbled by my church and my 4-year-old teaching me and growing my personal faith on a daily basis.
I began bringing him to worship with me every Sunday since he was 6 weeks old. Originally, it was primarily because I was an overwhelmed first time mom and needed to shower, get dressed and get out of the house at least ONCE a week.
But that routine has lasted the past four years and our church was the one place I could go in public and be surrounding by love and understanding where I would not be judged or turned away for having a cranky kid.
It is not said enough, but THANK YOU FUMCR for being a community of faith that not only welcomes children into worship and the many other aspects of our life together, but for being a community of faith that helps nurture both parents and children together so that we all may remember to say Thank You God!
