    I've never been to church I don't know anything

    about it really, but I want to go..so I have a question,is it ok for me to go if I don't know anything about the religion? I don't want to seem rude just popping in...do I call first? Is there some kind of protocol?

    I am happy that my parents are religious that consistently taught us to become good Christians. To set the record straight I never missed any weekly mass only thrice my whole life time. I hate when people are lazy and instead worship false gods(wealth, technology and...

    Church has been such a blessing in my life.

    It wasn't until I strayed away from the church for a while that I noticed I really needed to be there to sustain my everyday life and live accordingly. I love God, I love Church but I really love my church family !!!

    Yes.

    Often. It goes hand in hand with praying ... daily. I believe we need, I need a fellowship community and a one-on-one relationship with God.

    I spend around two months with my parents every year. The rest of the year, I'm overseas. My dad's an ordained priest. He doesn't know I gave up on religion a few years ago. So for about eight or nine weeks a year, I go to Bible study every Saturday, and Mass every Sunday...

    Church of Christ.

    So growing up my grandparents always went to the same church. Then as I grew up I would go every now and then. Then I was 15 I met my boyfriend. He would ask me to go as much as I could. When I finally did, It turned out to be my grandparents church. So then...

    The Apparent Gravitational Pull of Church... :

    My church story is half-romantic, half depressing, and you really need to know my whole story for me not to look like a sap, but I guess this isn't the time to get to that. I was raised in the catholic church, and stayed relatively faithful to the religion for most of my life...

    so many different christian denominations? Because it was the devils plan from the beginning to divide and conquer and spread confusion. It happened very slowly over time.Many went their own ways, developing their own false doctrines. Some churches have their own bibles and...

    Sure Do

    I was officially kicked out of church.

    I go to church every Sunday morning. It's something my family did every Sunday morning without question when I was growing up. I'm not religious, but going to church was just something I was raised to do. Going to church is good for people. People who go to church regularly...

    I feel a little lost when too much time passes and I haven't been to church. There's not an exact formula, but I know when I've missed too much. The other day I wound up taking a personal half-day from work and bursting into the church at one-thirty on Wednesday afternoon. I know...

    Last Sunday I found myself at a different church. I usually go to the one next door to the library with the nutty priest who makes me laugh. But, my Nana ( who's recently moved to an area nearby) insisted we go to the one nearer her. So I agreed and of we went. Now, my normal...

    Mass Has Changed Recently

    About 2 years ago I changed churches for various reasons. I suppose one of those was because I preferred the priest at the new one. He had a joke about everything and he always encouraged us all to go out into the world with a smile and a candle for those who need it. He...
