Back to Church Sunday

I recently saw a website that listed 52 Practical/Scientific Reasons To Go To Church from various academic studies. So, in honor of Back to Church Weekend let me list just a few of the reasons to go to church. 

  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Happier marriages
  • More affectionate parents
  • Fathers spending more time with children
  • Better maternal influence
  • Better behaved teenagers
  • Healthier behaviors 
  • Reduced delinquency 
  • Better personal health
  • Greater resistance to cancer
  • Faster healing
  • Greater longevity
  • Less alcohol abuse
  • Better sex life
  • A sense of purpose

While these are all great “benefits,” the bottom line is we aren't meant to be spiritual orphans, we need our local church family. Our second mission at Christian Life is to connect people to people. You aren't meant to be a Christian all alone. You need the family of God surrounding you week in and week out with encouragement, prayer, and accountability.  You need your church family!  There is something powerful when we gather with likeminded believers in the local church to worship God.  Don’t miss out on what God wants to do in your life as we worship God together.
