Why I love the Anderson church of Christ….
by family members
It was a shot in the dark. Originally we didn’t know exactly what kind of response we might receive. We were looking for ideas. In the process of developing an advertising DVD for the church here we just thought we’d ask, “Why do YOU attend the Anderson church of Christ?” We thought that from a few responses we might come up with things that would be attractive to outsiders. Were we ever surprised! What we received was a heartwarming response. Almost every family in the congregation had something to say and many had several spokespeople. From ages 9 to 70, here are the unedited expressions from the family member of the Anderson church of Christ as to why they chose THIS church family to be part of (and why you might consider visiting with us if you live in the local area).
