"My new husband had been attending Mid-Cites for a few years when God placed it on my heart to join a church, but I had only visited a handful of times with him for Easter and Christmas. I wanted to find a small church where I could feel at home and find family.
Mid-Cities is a really big church with so many people; how could I find community at a place that size? I told Jerry we had to look for a new church, but he agreed to attend on the Sundays he served with the New Here team. They offered the Welcome 101 class on the second Sunday I attended, so I decided to give it at least a chance and see what it was all about.
By the end of class, I signed the membership form and never looked for a different church. I have found my home and my family here. And I don’t know if I would have without that first step!"
"We took Discover 201 together and it has changed our lives."

"For a long time, I felt a deep desire to become more involved in the church by serving, but as an introvert, it felt intimidating, and I didn’t know where to start. I did a lot of praying and asked God to lead me where He wanted me to be.
Not only did Discover 201 make it super simple to get plugged into a team to serve, but it helped me learn about my God-given strengths and spiritual gifts! My husband and I took Discover 201 together, and it has changed our lives.
Serving and being involved has brought God to the forefront of our household. For the first time, I feel like I am truly part of a church family. I’m excited to let God lead my family where He wants us to be: the hands and feet of Jesus."

"The Holy Spirit has been calling me to serve God my entire life. I have always known it. Sometimes I submitted, but more often, I ran. The one constant was the uncertainty of what I had to offer.
Discover 201 is, at its core, designed to help everyone find a way to plug in. It does that perfectly, but it does so much more. 201 helped my wife and I explore and realize our strengths and spiritual gifts through introspection and prayer.
Since completing the class, our family has seen a revival, and God has moved in ways we never thought possible. Service to our Lord is what we are designed for, and we are truly at our best and happiest doing exactly that!"
