out of curiosity; I went and found out when the church services were. I knew my grandsonand I needed God in our lives. When we came to Cedarbrook, I heard pastor Remy say ‘Ourpassion is to first experience, then share the life-changing love of God!’ and boy did thathit home! Since I’ve been at Cedarbrook that's exactly what happened to me.The classes I have taken at Cedarbrook have been life changing for me. I even recall atime I asked Remy to pray for me because I felt he was closer to God than me. Today, Ihave my own personal relationship with God and I'm able to pray and feel the closeness toGod as I’ve always dreamed of having. My grandson and I found a church that we arealready growing in and I thank God for showing his love to us at Cedarbrook. Thank youso much and may God bless you all!
In September of 2009, we moved to the Spring Valley area from the Madison area. We cancertainly relate to the recent messages about transitions, as this past year we had quite afew major transitions; we moved, my husband became the owner of his own business, Istarted a new job and in March of this year, we were blessed with our first child, Madelyn.We tried out several churches in the area but immediately felt at home atCedarbrook as everyone was very friendly and welcoming, worship was joyous and acelebration of God's love and the sermon messages were practical and help us to have astronger faith and closer relationship with God in our everyday life.We have been blessed to be a part of a small group led by Jeremy and Amy Burns, andalthough we have only been a part of it for a short time, God has shown his love for usthrough this group. An example is that when Madelyn was born, even though we had onlymet some of the group members only once or twice, they all took turns bringing us ameal which was so thoughtful and helpful--and much appreciated. I think this is also anexample of what was recently talked about in a sermon---related to the fact that althoughthe new building will be a wonderful blessing, the bigger picture is that it is not about thebuilding but about God's plans for how that building will assist in reaching out to peopleand bringing glory to His name.Though we have only been attending Cedarbrook for a short time, it has already becomean important part of our lives and strengthed our faith. We look forward to the move intothe new building and what God has in store for Cedarbrook there. Thanks!
I found Cedarbrook in the latter half of my career as a UW-Stout student. I wanted toexperience the Menomonie churches while in school, and I began my church shoppingjourney with Cedarbrook. It was my first and last stop. I had developed some destructivehabits while at college, and felt that they were cutting me short of my faith walk. Gettingback on track with God through Cedarbrook was perhaps the biggest and best decision Imade in college.
