Why Should I Go to Church?
By Tara Mulder

 “Why should I go to church?” is a question more and more people are asking. Long gone is the blind acceptance that Sunday morning means dressing your best and going to the neighborhood Christian church just because that’s what is expected. People are making other choices now, more personal choices, based on the kind of life they want to live. People are still very spiritual, but they’re feeling like there’s more than one way to peel the spiritual onion, so to speak. Each person is defining what faith is, the sacred, the relevant, and what makes a contribution to the world, according to his or her own values.

This booklet has stories of people asking questions and finding answers. You’ll find straightforward descriptions of God, what Christians believe, and the church experience. You will meet Felicia who thinks the church just wants money, Amanda who doesn’t trust, Lawrence who doesn’t see the point, the author who became a seeker of truth, and Jesus Christ and the Church.

This booklet and many are available in the narthex. Check them out for you or a friend.
