Great area. Very nice. Do come into to the city often to enjoy the amenities, however. The nice thing is it is such a short commute.

Enofile, I am a Southern Baptist (moderate). You have hit on what has become a sad part of American faith. Yes, join the Temple, join Southeast Christian, join a local Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Buddhist, or Hindu congregation. I would hope your primary reason would be to worship, but most congregations of even the most conservative nature have had to "sell" their fellowship or social experience before they could draw people to worship first then enjoy the community. Now, so often, it's sell the community prior to worship.

So, yes, if I were you, I would visit many congregations, study each church's uniqueness, then decide if one in particular attracts you. Be certain to have conversations with the people and be not afraid to discuss religion. LOL

I do believe in Christ and I do believe in what my church is doing from a faith based point of view, but I hope you find a place that will give you hope and joy as well as social connections.
