Well, I feel Church is a very important part of my husband and I's life. Unless I or he is sick, or we are out of town somewhere, you will find us attending church every Sunday. For me, you can never get enough of God and church. To be able to worship him in song, praise, prayer, and being able to have the chance to fellowship with believers of like faith and forget about your problems and such for a couple of hrs. as well.

I attend worship service every Sunday and try to encourage others to do the same. It is a time for me to reflect, review, and refresh! I see Sunday worship as a gathering of celebration. I taught my children that the family who prays together stays together. Hubby and I are very close with our boys who are now adults, all of us have our own issues but it worked, we still pray for each other!

Going to church every Sunday is something I consider a must and like King David puts it in Psalms, I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Going there, praising and worshiping Him makes the rest of the week very much blessed for me. It's also a great opportunity for me to glorify God using all the talents He has graciously given me. All Glory to God

I've been going to church regularly on a Sunday. I live in Trinidad and Tobago and we are very much into religion. Saturdays and Sundays are the usual church going days but there are also other services during the week. I attend a Pentecostal church and I am grateful that there is a place where I can meet and mingle with other Christians. It is always a breath of fresh air to start the week off with such good feelings of joy and gratitude. Have a blessed week. ~*~

Yes, I go to church every Sunday. As a matter of fact, I go to two different churches every Sunday - first to a Episcopal church because I prefer their communion service to the other church, and second to an independent Christian church because I prefer their preaching.

No I don't go to church every sunday but I do worship and acknowledge God every day. You see God doesn't want you to worship him only one day but every minute of the day.

i do agree with you in the point that we should be thankful and acknowledge God in every day of our life and not just sunday...but taking sunday be out in your service with God i think were leaving the very practice of the early christian in g gathering every first day of the week as the day of celebrating the day of resurrection of the Lord and of the instituted christian day of fellowship among the christian

I'm sorry to say too that I don't practice this going to church on Sundays. Since high school I don't go to hear mass on Sundays anymore. I like going to church on Mondays since it's quiet and uncrowded. But I just light candles and pray for my family, that's all. I'm not into hearing mass, really.

why? maybe your not getting the spiritual nourishment from it thats why..try alittle bit of a change in your spiritual life..try hearing the word of God from preachings and teachings of your local churches there which do not practice your used to be church...anyway that is only a suggestion..

I don't but wish that I could, my husband works on sundays so we can't go. Our church has an evening service too, so my husband and I take turns going each week, one of us has to stay home with the kids because they are going to bed by then.

i think we all busy makin for living...sad to say we work during sunday which is the only time that we can rest and be in the church...i cant blame you for that friend..but make it a prayer that somehow God will give you the liberty in finances and make your husband day off on sunday for your whole family to be in the church.

I am sorry to say that I do not. There was a time when I did, but at this time I do not. I am Christian though, and have studied the bible, and I do pray often. I just don't go to the church to do so. I have no excuse for not going, probably just pure liziness.

My home is my church. That's the way Jesus set His church up and that's the way I'll do it.

maybe you may reflect more with this issue...i dont think home is the very church god has design for us, rather it is more on the gathering of the believers in a particular place for the purpose of fellowship,prayer,and other christian tradition we have learn from the Lord and of his apostles and of the early christian..

Read Matthew chapter 10 verses 7 thru 14, (King James Version). It will tell you exactly where Jesus sent the 12 Apostles. He sent them into the homes of the people that accepted Him. Then if you will read 1st John chapter 2 verse 27 it will tell you exactly what the Apostles were supposed to teach. It simply says once we have received the Anointing of the Holy Ghost we no longer need man to teach us. The Apostles, and the Christian teachers of today are supposed to be teaching people how to get to a point where God can Anoint them and that's it. If they can do that job right then they can step aside and get out from between God and that person. The best of men make honest mistakes but the Holy Ghost doesn't. There is no room for mistakes in God's teaching. Man is not supposed to be trying to lead man all the way from the cradle to the grave like he is doing now in the churches. That is not what Jesus set up. The church Jesus set up was to spread from one home to the other. Most of our Christian teaching is supposed to be done with our children in our home. Others can observe and see God working in the family and set up the same church in their homes. Also as the children grew up and married they could take Jesus' true church into their home. This didn't happen for one simple reason. There is no profit in Christian teaching if you do it the way Jesus set it up in His church. There is to be no money involved with Christian teaching in any way. Jesus made that very clear. He told the Apostles to take no money with them. It doesn't cost my friends and neighbors one penny to come into my home and ask for my help. I do my best to live my life before them in a way that reflects God in my personal life and also in my home. The Apostles were only supposed to set up Jesus' Church and get it started off on the right foot. They did this but man's greed got the best of him and he started charging for his services. It has gone from that to what you see now in the Churches. There is only one big problem in doing it this way. If you go for the money you will not receive God's real truth.

Why would the Saints need money? If they were doing what Jesus told the Apostles to teach there was no money involved in their ministries. No where in the Bible did Jesus tell anyone to give money to anyone other than to pay the taxes. Do you think God would base anything he did on anything as uncertain as money? I don't. If anything is depending on money to continue if the money stops then so does the ministry. Anything God actually builds can't be destroyed and this includes you. What will happen to most of the churches if our economy does crash. A church is no different than anything else. Most of them have large notes on them being held by some bank. If times get hard and the payments to the bank can't be made they will have their lock on the doors before you can spit. This just doesn't sound like something the God I know would do. One thing is for certain. Any time you have two different opinions on any subject at least one or both of them are wrong. How many different opinions do you see out here on how we should be serving God? Is it possible someone is wrong or is it also possible all of them are wrong? I am the first to agree there should be churches but if God truly built them, chose the man to run them and personally taught the man through the Holy Ghost I think they would be run a lot different to what we see today. I don't mean to upset anyone or condemn anyone for going to church. We need to be with other like minded Christians but like minded Christians are few and far between. No two Christians can come together for very long until one of them will have to agree with something they don't really believe to keep from offending the other one. Look at what happens right here on MyLot.

No I don't go to church on Sundays. Everyone in my family at home doesn't hear mass. I used to go to mass alone but I don't do it now. It's good to hear mass, to be with the Holy One. I try to make my Sundays holy even I don't go to mass.

I do go to Church but not every Sunday. God is everywhere and there are so many ways to Praise and honor God. I do plan to go this Sunday as I miss being among my Church family when I am away. I learn a great deal everytime I go and is a great experience which enriches my life.

We do not go to Church every Sunday because it is very hard to take 6 boys to church - I always feel like they are disturbing the other parishoners who are there to worship.

think you should take the boys with you...just let them i think that's fine for being boys, maybe a little whisper of word will do to make them to behave a while...
