Well, I have decided that I am missing something in my life, and want to find a church family. In my entire life (I'm 23), I have probably attended half a dozen services (shame on me, I know....).
Since I am divorced, will be re-married, have a blended family and have made my share of mistakes, I am EXTREMELY intimidated by stepping through the doors or a place of worship. I am Christian- I believe in God and Jesus. However I have very little knowledge of the bible and it's teachings. So naturally, all of this makes me feel very out of place.
I have found a more non-denominational type church in my area- sort of a "come as you are, no matter who you are or what you have done" kind of atmosphere (from what I have heard/read). I do plan on attending this coming Sunday- I will go solo to check it out and bring the family the next week if all goes well.
So, any advice for a newcomer (of sorts) trying to return to church? Any input or kind reassurance will be greatly appreciated :)

The belief in the death and resurrection of Christ would make me think your a Christian. I would say go in with an open heart and pray that God will open you to whatever he has for you and he will lead you and let you know what to do. Good luck, prayer always helps in any situation.
