5 Ways to Encourage and Maintain Church AttendanceMichael Harrell
I understand. Really, I get it. We all get it. Church is hard to get to. It’s the weekend, and we always meet in the morning when it’s sleep-in time. And when it’s not sleep-in time, someone has a soccer game or in-laws in town and need to get brunch or the rare family vacation. We’ll go for a friend’s baptism; we’ll go for Christmas, for Easter, or when we really feel like we haven’t been to church in a while. For some, it’s because church is so far away (finding a faithful congregation can be hard when Joel Osteen rules the American Christian world). For others, it’s because of those scheduling issues. But we need to get there. As the author to the Hebrews writes:
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25
So without much significant ado, here they are: five ways to keep you going to church.
