lonelyQ. I just moved away from home for the first time, and even though it's so exciting to be on my own, paying my own bills and taking care of my own apartment, it can get really lonely too. I enjoy coming to church, but once the service is over and I talk to a few people, I still have to face my empty apartment. There's no way I'm going back to my mother's, but I wish there was some way to fill the empty feeling I have.

A. Taking on new responsibilities and facing challenges is a part of maturing, and sometimes it can be difficult and lonely. But also a part of the challenge is learning how to make the changes work for you. You may not be aware that there are many opportunities for you to be plugged into more groups and activities in the church where you can build better relationships and friendships if you want. Depending on your age you may still be able to be a part of our Youth Power Group, or see if you'd like to join the Sisterhood. We have evangelism groups going out around Houston every Saturday, we have our Kids Zone that is in need of child care and teachers every evening, and we are always in need of volunteers for our outreach to the elderly, called the Caleb Group. Ask around to one of our assistants the next time you come to church and they'll be more than happy to give you all the information you need. As you give more of yourself to God, He will give back to you much more than you can imagine.
