The Lybrand Family

We moved back to Mid-Missouri from Fort Myers, Florida in December of 2014 due to a job transfer.  We chose to buy a house in Ashland instead of Columbia as we wanted our kids in the Ashland schools.  We thought living between Columbia and Jeff was the perfect location for us!

We were very excited to be going back to our church family in Columbia, and spent the first few months doing just that.  It was really great, but we started getting a feeling that perhaps we should look for a church in Ashland.  We wanted to be involved in our community and make a difference, and realized that driving in to Columbia during the week probably wasn’t going to happen, and it wasn’t our hometown anymore.

We decided to try ABC one Sunday, and immediately felt welcomed.  Pastor Matt called us during the week after our visit, and let us know the vision that he had for ABC.  We were very excited and continued to visit for a few months before deciding that we wanted to become members, and be a part of the family here.

We also started to attend Sunday School, and totally love our class.  The Women’s Bible Studies have been great, and we are looking forward to being involved in different ways as time goes on.

Not pictured with us are our 5 kids, ranging in age from 25 down to 13.  We are fast approaching being empty-nesters, as the 13 year old is the only one living at home with us as of October.  We’re also excited that we have our first grandbaby on the way!!  We have truly been blessed!
