Jesus made a habit of being in the synagogue service on the Sabbath. Christians have followed His example and made a habit of being in church on Sunday. Why?
We learn more about Jesus and what it means to follow Him.
We learn to worship: to focus your attention and affection on God.
We learn how to follow the Bible.
We learn to be generous.
We learn to pray.
We learn from each other.
Each Sunday, make some time for God and for people.
Christianity is a team sport! We do it best together.
