Me and my church

Post by ThomasEversole Yesterday at 11:57 am

Me and my church could use some prayers.
I haven't been to my church in a while. Sad

Its not because of some excuse or whatever, but.... my pastor doesn't have enough income to just be a minister, so he has to work a full time job through the week. Needless to say, because of that, Wednesday night Celebrate Recovery and Sunday Night bible study are canceled until further notice.
Those were what I attended because Sunday mornings, I work. ._.

I'm not sure what to do. Wait it out until something changes? Find a new church?
It was hard enough (after a 10 year hiatus from attending services) to join a small church... it will be even harder to find something else. (for some reason, going to another church would feel sort of like "betraying" mine, not to mention a whole new gauntlet of people to not horrify when they meet me)

Prayers would be appreciated. Thank you,

Prayers for wisdom about this!

That's a tough one.  Not knowing you or your church the obvious answer is to find a new one.  If it's not meeting your needs and there's a better one in the area, go there.  That's an outsider's perspective, so don't put too much stock in it.

Will pray for you and your church, bro. These are economically hard times, so I understand why your pastor has to have a full time job.

As much as you love your current church, you really need to focus on your personal relationship with God. But going to church and to be connected with your brothers and sisters in Christ is also very important. So if your church doesn't meet your needs right now, try to go to another church. It doesn't mean, that you have to LEAVE the church that you belong to.
