10 Myths About Attending Church With Me

I just want to give a quick shout out to my Childress friends. If you’ve ever considered going to church, but haven’t had the courage, how about making this Sunday the day you become brave enough. Just in case you don’t know what to expect or if you’ve heard some untrue things about coming to church with me,  I’m going to set you straight. SO here are 10 myths you might have heard about going to church that are NOT TRUE…

  1. You must dress up in nice clothes. NOT TRUE … but you must wear clothes … they are not optional. :)
  2. The ceiling might collapse if you attend church. Okay, I’ll admit that there are a few small crack in the walls because our building is old, but I can guarantee you that the roof won’t collapse. I feel so sure about this that I’ll make this guarantee, IF THE ROOF DOES FALL IN, you have my permission to never come again.
  3. You can only go to church when your life is straightened up. NOT TRUE again. Attending church worship isn’t for those with their life in order, but those simply trying to make order of their life.
  4. Church is for perfect people. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I’ll be there, and I’m SO FAR from perfect.
  5. There’s a chance someone might call attention to you as a visitor by making you stand up, etc. Not going to happen here, I promise.
  6. The church is full of hypocrites. You bet. We call ourselves sinners. Much like a hospital has sick patients, churches have imperfect spiritually sick people.
  7. You might be asked to join the church. Untrue here … although I will tell you about Jesus.
  8. You might do something wrong. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN unless you bring a giant snake or a Mississippi squirrel with you … or something crazy like that.
  9. You’re just going to beat me up and make me feel guilty. That’s actually not my goal. My goal is to encourage you, let you know that Jesus loves you and remind you that His way is the best way, BUT if you feel guilty, that’s your fault not mine.
  10. You’re not Church of Christ, instead you are _______________ (you fill in the blank). It doesn’t matter what you consider yourself,  you’re very welcome to come.

No more excuses … see you Sunday.

    it would be funny to see a squirrel, get loose once, :)

  2. Funny but practical. Presten and me enjoyed reading this; gave us a good chuckle. Perhaps some time after we move to TX we will drive up for a weekend and visit one Sunday! Y’all could show us a good time in Childress. We’ve never been there! 😀
    *HUGS* Thanks for dispelling the myths. At least if the roof falls in when *I* visit I know where I’m going if it kills me! ;o)

    With your heart and those perspectives, I would hope your church is filled with guests. Great answers to the things people don’t know about a Jesus-focused church.
