10 reasons your members come to church even though it stinks (sucks)

July 5, 2009

Why do people go to your church? Are they really being blessed by the service? Have they experienced a closer walk with God?

People attend churches for a variety of reasons. I’ve listed ten.

1. family-Family attends the church.

2. friends-Friends attend the church.

3. tradition-Where I’ve always gone to church.

4. closest to home-I don’t have to travel very far.

5. music-Not great but it’s identifiable. LOL

6. preaching-It’s only once per week so I can bear it.

7. people my age at the church- I can at least connect with people my age.

8. that’s where they grew up-similar to tradition, I’m connected to the church. I know people.

9. trying to find a spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend- because I know people, I’m trying to ind a spouse from among my kin folk.

10. guilty-I just feel like I HAVE TO GO TO CHURCH.
