COMMIT TO ATTEND CHURCH
CHURCH HELPS US ENCOUNTER THE LIVING GOD
WHY IS CHURCH IMPORTANT?
“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.”
Attending church helps us "Celebrate Big" the faithfulness of God regularly - a large component of our Discipleship.
The purpose though is not merely for the religious duty of attending church - but rather a personal commitment to regularly and intentionally put ourselves in an experience where God can encounter us and change us.
In an instant or over time, we've convinced that encountering God will supernaturally change our lives, the lives of our family, and the region around us.
Church is a concentration of spaces and places where God can move powerfully, from worship to greeters to preaching.
Biblically we see evidence that God will always encounter us more intimately in eight different areas; the Gospel, Scripture, Spiritual Disciplines, Spiritual Gifts, Gathered Worship, Communion, Baptism, and Suffering.
Many of these guaranteed places of encounter are evident on any given Sunday at Church!

HOW TO COMMIT
Ask a Friend/Spouse to Commit With You
This way you can help keep each other accountable. When one doesn't feel like going, the other will encourage you to go.
Make a Repeating Calendar Reminder
It may sound simple, but usually what gets scheduled gets done. Create a Sunday calendar reminder for you to come to church. Set a notification an hour early to make sure you're on time too!
Utilize Life Milestones
Whether it's a birthday, New Years resolution, baby being born, or a baptism, use these things to help trigger your commitment to attending church.
Join a LifeGroup
One of the purposes of a LifeGroup is to encourage you in all aspects of furthering your discipleship. This group of people will help encourage you to come.
