are you a church person, do you go to church every sunday ? or do you watch it on tv, i like to watch some church shoes on tv, there is a group of different people who go to jackson ky, and they have different singers every week and i sometimes watch that and find it interesting it comes on thru the week.. but as for sundays i dont go every week, infact i have missed the last 2 weeks, but i will go back tommorrow, i dread going back after i miss.. but i do love my church, we have a great little church and i like a little church to a big huge one.. you wont find me in a big huge church. a si dont like big crowds and i like to know everybody at my church name.. and that was what i grew up in small churches.. i also like the old songs that we sing, and not this new version of songs.. the other churchs do.. do you attend church, is it a big church or litle one, and do you go every sunday.. i can tell when i miss church my life is not where i need to be, so i try not to miss,

I have not been to church in a long while. I pray regularly, but have a hard time fitting my personal belief system with the local organized religion. Organized religion tends to be very conservative, and that is not me.

religion - everybody has different views on religion
i am one whombelieve you do not have to go to church to have a relationship with god i did not like church before becasue i found that church boring and was falling asleep durin gthe service, slowly one by one that church fell apart and i found the one i amm at now, and i love this church it is exactly what i have been looking for and that makes a difference..

I have looked into most of the churches in my small town, but the church that i have found I am most comfortable with is close to an hour away. With gas prices what they are I find it more important to spend time with my family (hubby is agnostic) and save the money.

well in my book as long as you love jesus like you said , that is all that matters i dont think you have to go to church everytime the door sare open, espically if you pray at home or with friends or study the word by bible or put God firts in your life that is a true christain one who puts God first in there life i need to do that more myself.. i have been trying to read my bible one chapter a day and at night starting with the new testiment.. and i think it has been helping me move forward i too need to get back in church but i now work on sunday.. but they have a service in walking distance of my house on sunday nghts and free dinner cant beat that so i may go next sunday and see if i like it.. i do have another church but i could only make church not sunday school i dont get off work in time.. take care an d remember put God first above all.. :)

Even when I was still a Christian I never wanted to go to church because you can still be faithful without going. Also many who go don't even know what's going on, just sing along, it works.

i use to feel the same way, until i found this little church i go to now it is like god sent it to me, as we found it by accident, we saw it and pulled into the parking lot to see what time the service started and the pastor just so happend to be there and she invited us back and we have been going ever since.. i like it alot a good church make the difference.. but your right you dotn have to go at all..

We don't go to church often. I don't like watching church and I don't enjoy going either. We normally only go when my husbands grandparents ask us to go and then we will go. We don't feel there is a need to go every weekend to be close to god or and stuff. But if that is what one family or person wants to do that is fine with me or watching it on tv. What ever makes them happy.

I agree with this opinion. We don't need to go to church weekly to indicate that we are making ourselves close to god but then live the rest of the week apart from God. I remember God 24/7 and not just on Sundays.

I don't mind going to church. But I am far away from it. I don't drive. And I am sure God does not want me to spend $30 a week to conform to a tradition. So, I watch the Sunday Mass on television. During the week, I can watch the Mass online if I want to.

yup, we do go to church every Sunday. i like the music our church plays and because we are located near a university we get a ton of university students so it makes our church fairly youngish, plus i love the people. the only time i miss is when i am sick (fairly often i am afraid). if i don't make it to church, i watch this awesome minister out of Winnipeg from a church called church on the rock. he is great and weaves interesting stories in his sermons.

I now seldom go to church and I know that it's my fault. We have lot's of reasons to think of but we should never miss once a week important event which is going to church. When I sometimes go to a church just to pray, when it happened to have a mass, I always start to miss those days when I was once part of the choir group singing in the church every Sunday. I should go back now.

Hey it's nice to see you love your church and like to go. I do go to church regulaly but perhaps not as much as I should. We moved to canada about 6 years ago and like our church or rather the people that attend but there are only girls that attend and my son is at the age where he doesn't want to mix.so it is getting harder to get him interested. to go. I don't think it is essensial for salvation to go to church every day as long as you live a christ like life and study our road map(Bible)

I don't go every Sunday, but there are things about a huge church that appeal to me, there are times I like to get lost in the crowd. On the other hand, the church I go to is small, but I've been going such a short time and I'm SO bad with names, that I don't hardly know anyone.

I don't go to church on sundays but I go every saturday because I am a Seventh Day Adventist. But I go every week unless i have to do something for school or volunteer cause most of these thing are always on a saturday. I also go every week because i kind of dont have a choice if I were to tell my mom i didnt want to go to church one week with no good reason it would be a definite NO.As to going to a small church I have been attending the same church since i was seven years old and so i know the people pretty well even though there are a few people who are not really favorable company so i dont know what there names are. It can be a good thing but church has a lot of gossip sometime and i really wish it didnt but that what happens sometimes when you are in a small church. Its like a small town every one knows everything about every one and some times before the person who the gossip is about knows about.

Hi laken: I try my best to do it. However, I have to admit that sometimes I forget it or I am just too lazy to go which is not good because that makes part of my responsibilities and my religious formation . ALVARO

Honestly, I was too lazy to go to Church myself, nor I won't watch those church show. I am not a religious person, so, I won't go to church, or read any Bible at all. But I heard other people say that it is a great place to meet people though in church. I won't use it as an excuse to meet people though, nor I would take advantage of it to meet some girls.

I am Catholic, but I don't go to church. I do my prayers everyday anywhere! Even God, had his praying place in the mountain with people.

I have not gone to church for a while. I believe the church is yourself and you can still manage to praise/pray to God even without going to church.

Inwish I would be just like you who does not miss going tonthe church. I used to go every Sunday but now I'm working abroad its hard for me to attend the mass.too bad for me. But I never missed to pray if I have free time all I do is pray that's how I praise and talk to God. I also love to listen to Gospel music like the songs of casting crowns, hill songs a lot to mention. Though I'm not updated with their new songs too sad. I can almost sing all of them.sing at the top of my lungs lol God is good! I alsonlove old song remembering the old times.it's good! What else do you like? What Gospel songs can you recommend and share.

I attend a small church, less than 50 of us where everyone knows everyone. Most of us serve in some ways, either in the pulpit, music or otherwise. We recently started to worship on Saturdays as we are using another Church's premises. We take Saturday, they take Sundays. Yes, small churches have their own benefit, and going to Church should be encouraged. How can one grow on his/her own. We need to encourage each other, just like the what Heb 10:25 says. Jesus Himself went to the synagogue, didn't he?
