I was a member of this church for a few years , a married mom of two and I was welcomed into the church like I was family, at first. When my marriage started to fall apart because of Physical Abuse from My Husband to My children and to myself. I went and met with the Pastor(Mike) for some Counseling to help me cope with my marital Problems. At the time I was being tested for sure by Satan to show that Marriage and Religion were against me. When I went to speak with the Counselor I expected to be Counseled, to be given advice to be Helped in any way, the advice I got was disturbing. The Pastor(who happened to have been the one who married me) told me that sometimes Marriage’s end, Sometimes people are meant to be together, and divorce is an option. As my husband at the time, was a lifelong member of the church, I was sure that my advice was biased based on the relationship The Pastor and my Husband Families had. Well in the long run, my marriage did end, and At my divorce Court, 20 members from a Church showed up for Support of my ex-husband. Since then, I have received only hateful and mean communication from the members of the church, including the Pastor’s Wife! Church is somewhere everyone should be able to go to feel completely at peace with there religion, with there life, and definitely understanding the meaning of what a Church Is. I have since heard many other similar stories of other members that no longer attend This Church, and they have told me Similar Stories, No Church should every feel like they are able to do what this church has done- No human being should have been able to, but especially a man representing god and representing Christianity! I Have attended Falls Church Since this event, and I strongly recommend it, Falls Church is absolutely Lovely, They welcome you with open arms, and with open hearts. I Hope I can Help Avoid Even one bad Church Experience by helping spread the word, That Rustic Hills, Is Not a Christian Church, Nor our they Representing Gods Word.
