Our Church has one of the most intelligent speakers I have ever heard. That is probably the reason I rarely miss a Sunday. But, also, I think it is important to hang our with other Christians, at least for a short while, as I don't work with any. Also, my little girl needs to hear about God and Jesus more than just from my wife and I. Finally, the music is quite good. It is easy to get into the rut of not going. I did that for a while, choosing the spend Sunday's "resting" or out in the woods or on the lake, but it is easy to fall into a self-centered form of worship by doing this. I guess that is why we actually need churches.

I hear what you say MacAibhistin! I really prefer to stay home on Sunday mornings in real truth and there are mornings that I do and it is real easy to get into that rut, but know I have so much to be thankful for and that God is always there for me that the least I can do is get out of that bed and worship and praise him with fellow believers and listen to the Word of God being spoken and encouragement and teaching for the week.

I enjoy going to church for many of the reasons already given. Unfortunately though, we have not been going for a while. sad.gif Our church is gong through some problems right now, so we are trying to wait them out. I hope everything turns around soon! To me, my church is a filling station and just now I am running on empty!

Wow, you're all going for such great and noble reasons. I go because my wife wants to go. I agree to go because I enjoy the fellowship and I learn something from the sermon, but I don't know that I would go if I were single.

My relationship with God is personal, and I don't feel like it suffers if I don't go to church. I'm not a BETTER Christian if I go to church, although I know that I get things from it that I wouldn't get if I didn't go.

Deckers! Thank you for your honesty. My husband is really into going to church to the point I think he is legalistic about it. I must say as much as I need to go cause I am thankful for many blessings, the study of the Word, the fellowship with other believers.............I go mostly because my husband insists we go. I am not a morning person so I would rather sleep in some Sunday mornings.

Allen! I am sorry to hear about your problems going on with your church. Been there and done that and it is very painful, is it not? I think that is the reason why I don't get involved with church anymore like I used to. Been through too many of those situations at churches I have attended.
