Christ and the Church. The Head of the Church main focus for us is the Church, and it ought to be first.I want a church with fellowship opps and one that has fun stuff. My husband is so so and my teen isn't going to church at all. Any tips that you can share that helped you find the church you go to?
My husband doesn't really care about church too much. I want to get involved but he doesn't. On top of that, our teen doesn't want anything to do with church either. There is a church I'm thinking about going back to and my husband says he doesn't care....Should I go anyways? There would be chance to really fellowship and get to know people, I don't have that much now if at all.I haven't been to church consistently in many years. That being said, I used to church hop. Every couple of Sundays, I would start going to another church altogether, even if I liked the one that I'd been going to. There was a time when I would randomly choose a church each Sunday. I found that it was a wonderful way to expose myself to different Christian communities. I highly recommend the experience!
thanks for the encouragement Sal. I like the church we've been going to, the modern praise and worship, teaching. But it is so big it's hard to make connections although I know a few people.Hi Jan. I think it be a great idea to follow what you believe in going back to church. I believe it would be just what you need. It doesn't matter so much if your husband and child don't seem interested right now. It's good that you've included them obviously in telling them your thoughts and desires. But i think this is something you need to do for yourself anyway with or without them. If you find fulfillment in the church and great fellowship it will have a great impact and before long your husband and child may even show interest. And if you are happier it's going to rub off on them too. I feel excited for you and hope all goes well. I say this as i go my church 4 times a week and it is great for me. I'd be lost without it.
Well he went with me today, and although we know a few folks there, he was "okay" with it but he prefers the other church where we hardly know anyone. ((sigh))). I just want to get plugged in! Should I go to this other church w/o him?Is there any groups in the church you could join?
Maybe you could give it a try. You may find a preference for one or the other. Let God guide you.Well he went with me today, and although we know a few folks there, he was "okay" with it but he prefers the other church where we hardly know anyone. ((sigh))).
