Church Attendance – Why Go to Church?

Better question:  Why not go to church.  Here’s my top ten list on why to go to church?

  1. Where else will you find this kind of encouragement in your walk with Christ?  On the subway, in the grocery check-out…if you do, you must live in Mayberry.
  2. When people ask you “How are you doing”, many times they really want to know!
  3. You have free effective counseling available…sounds alot better than $100 an hour with a therapist.
  4. While your kids are being cared for, you are being encouraged by the best-selling book of all-time.
  5. By the way, your kids are also being instructed on living Godly lives and to obey you!
  6. The pastoral staff is not just keynote speakers, they are your teammate in understanding God’s will for your life and how to guide your family in Christian living.
  7. Your gifts are tax deductible – sorry =)
  8. It is often a free concert and your friends are the performers!
  9. Seriously, what other institution would offer free meals during tough times, surgeries, or funerals….not gonna get that from UPS or FedEx.
  10. If you miss practice, it doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t go to the big game…but this is great practice for the main event.
