There is a church size and style that will fit you, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey – even if you have never tried church before! Join your neighbors and come back to church!
Why You Should Come Back To Church:
- “Children and youth who attend religious services weekly exhibit the fewest behavior problems, are more likely to have high-quality relationships with their parents, and are more likely to exhibit positive social behavior, including showing respect for teachers and neighbors, getting along with other children, understanding other people’s feelings, and trying to resolve conflicts with classmates, family, or friends.” —National Survey of Children’s Health, as quoted by Hal Seed, NewSong Community Church
- “A study finds people who attend religious services weekly live longer.” —Robert Roy Britt, LiveScience
