Why give up your Sunday morning?

This question has caused some good conversation. Some people have told me that it was actually difficult to answer (which they found a bit worrisome). But there were several reasons give to me on why we should come to church. Here are some of them:

  • We need others. The Christian life cannot be lived alone. Once we are out of relationship with other believers it seems to inevitable that we will begin to lose our passion
  • Sunday morning is a scheduled time when we come together as a community. This allows us a place to connect, pray for each other...
  • We are able to worship alone - in fact we should be worshiping alone. However there is something special, unique about worshiping God in a community of faith.
  • This is a time when learn. We should be learning on our own but sometimes we just need to learn with others.
  • Our weeks sometimes fill up and our time with God gets pushed aside - Sunday morning is a time to refocus, recharge.
Doing stuff together
  • Sunday morning creates a place where we can pool our resources together to do something together
  • Sunday morning is a time when we can hear about what God is doing in the world through us (also it is a time to just hear what God is doing in the world.)
