FBC Rockport (SUYL)

Is it strange that when I googled "FBC Rockport, Tx" for photos of my beloved church, the 4th image on the list was a picture of yours truly??

I was a little creeped out.

Needless to say, I didnt find any good google-able photos of our church. Thankfully, I've posted (with pictures!) before about our move to Rockport. Check it out.

My husband and I attend FBC Rockport because my lovely and wonderful husband is on staff! He works full time as the Minister to Students (AKA Youth Pastor!) and I help out wherever help is needed! We really love FBC- it's the largest church in our town and we usually have about 500-600 divided between a traditional and contemporary service.

Oh look! I found a map! It's outdated, but you get the idea... the red star = FBC. That blue stuff is water. As in the beach. Living 2 miles from the beach means Rockport is about as laid back as it comes, which also translates to our church. We take the Bible seriously, but we're pretty easy going about everything else. It's not uncommon to see people in jeans or fishing shirts at our services.

Like I said, despite our relaxed demeanor, our head pastor, Scott Jones is Biblically sound and not only encouraging but also challenging and unafraid to step on people's toes when the timing calls for it. It also never hurts to throw a little humor in the mix.

I totally hadnt planned on blogging today, especially after having to stay at work an hour after shift change due to a late c-section, but when I saw Kelly's Korner doing a SUYL about churches, I had to spread the word about how grrrrrreat FBCR really really is! I love my church!!!!

Small world but I used to live in Corpus, granted it has been 13 years, but my mom was an L and D nurse there too. I know exactly where the church is!

Sounds like a great church to me! We're about 15 miles from the beach, so I guess we're slightly stuffier. Haha. Kidding.

As far as googling and finding yourself, it could be worse. I mean, at least you weren't typing in something like: "signs of infectious diseases" or "Charlie Sheen and a shrimp fork". Always look on the bright side. ;)

I'm always amazed by youth pastors and their families!! I just think there is a great need for strong Christian role models for our teens so I think it's great! Thanks for sharing!
