Do you think Jesus really cares about WHERE we worship?

There are so many churches and so many faiths around today. When I was looking for a place to worship I turned to my local directory and saw the many denominations in town. I have to wonder and ask, does it really matter where we worship? Would worshipping at home or in a park or at the beach be just as good or better?

you can find the answer from bible itself. Turn to John chapter 4 verse 23; "yet a time is coming and now has come, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." Where ever you are worshipping, whichever denomination you are in, you should worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. That is the main point. you must write this verse into your heart. Also it is necessary that you become part of a church that follows bible principles. (Eccl 4:10) And also God desires that in your personal/day-to-day life, you should seek him/connect with him. But you should remind yourself that not just on Sunday, but love Him everyday. Have a relationship with Jesus everyday.

Yes, you support what I have concluded. I try to maintain a daily connection with God, speaking and praising God for all the blessings we enjoy. And I find that I am more comfortable reading the Bible and studying the teachings on my own than by going to a church. My husband and I do attend a Small Group where we fellowship with other Christians. I wish I could find a good church that both my husband and I would like to go to but we haven't been able to as yet. Nonetheless, I will endeavor to keep close to God and Jesus as I can everyday.

God is every wheres. I really don't think it matters where you choose to talk to him or where you choose to study his words.

I have to agree with you to a certain extent. Private study and meditation is a good thing and you don't have to do this in any church at all because like you said"God is everywhere," but I think we also benefit from the fellowship of other Christians and unless we can meet with some at some other place or home, church is a good place to meet others who share our faith. It really doesn't matter where we worship as long as we worship but church is a good place to do that also. Thanks for your reply, Dlpierce.
