Getting Church

  • Why do you feel you have no other opportunities to spend some time with God?
  • Are other Christians not encouraging you outside of weekly service times?
  • Do you feel you have no opportunities to encourage others outside of “church?”
  • Is “church” the only place where your kids are “getting to hear a message?”

  • Some church is better than no church.
  • So, if you’re not getting any church, it means you’re not attending at all.

Is “Church” Objectively the Better Decision?
