Do you attend church?

It’s been a hard year for church-goers. Not only is it so important for so many people to attend for religious reasons, but for most, church is also a place for community. We feel for those who have been without that community this year.

How often do you attend church? We know many church services are virtual right now, so you can answer this question whether you go in-person or attend virtually.

Please tell us in the poll below. Also, leave a comment and tell us if you attend church services while on the road, or if you mostly only attend when you’re not traveling in your RV. Thanks. We appreciate your votes and comments.

Christianity is not a religion, it’s a relationship. Jesus said we are the church.
Love to everybody!

Obviously people have deep seated feeling and opinions on this. Just the framing of the question “… church?” can make one react… Mosque? Synagogue? Temple? Retreat?
Personally I’ve found that a combination of self-respect, critical self reflection, and empathy for others to be the foundation of a good life, as I’m sure many people on here have as well, no matter the labeling.
Peace to all my fellow campers!

I voted once a week, but actually with Covid-19, we haven’t been since early September when we left our home state area.

Jesus is the Christ . He is God in every way that came to earth of His on free will to show man how we should live. He did this because He loves us more than anyone can imagine. He said that the two most important commandments are to love God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as you love yourself. All men are sinners deserve death but Jesus was crucified ,died and was buried and rose from the dead to bring salvation the us. Only through Him can we come to God. This is a free gift, there is nothing we can do to save ourselves but accept that Jesus is the true son of God and rose from the dead and is with the Father in heaven. Jesus began the church for us to grow a relationship with Him. We need the fellowship of other Christians to grow into the kind of people God intends us to be. We are to love God with all our heart. We are to love each other as we love ourselves.

We both believe our main goal in life is to Love as Jesus loved which means a lot of things. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” or “What goes around comes around”.  Our life has been devoted to trying to fulfill this goal. On Sundays we took our eight children to Mass and sat them in the front row so they could observe and participate and not just be looking at someone’s rear end. They saw us being involved in various Church, social and community activities over the years and sometimes they were able to participate right along with us. Unfortunately all of them did not follow our Catholic faith but most of them do attend a Church and are involved in sharing their love in Church and community activities and their lives and ours are richer for it.
Going to Church, mostly via livestream due to COVID, and listening to God’s Word gives us encouragement and support for living our lives as we continue on our journey to Heaven and meeting our creator.

Wow, this poll sure opened up a can of worms. There sure is a lot of anger out there. Anyway our small church uses ZOOM and many churches broadcast their services, so unless we’re driving, we can “go to church” if we want.

Organized religion has more blood on their hands than communism. Won’t go into one except for a non religious meeting or funeral for friend/family member. All Paths through organized religion do not lead to heaven.

I believe you are right on both your first and last statements. Organized religion in and of itself will never save anyone, and sadly has and still does cause a lot of harm. Jesus said, “l am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” I encourage everyone to get to know Jesus as their friend and Savior, and simply do what he taught us in the New Testament. Pretty basic and simple, really. I’m just trying to do the last thing he said as he left this earth, and that was to let everyone know about him and what he did for us! It’s up to you what you do with him after that.

Not trying to spark a big debate here, but I was skeptical of organized religion since I was the only Methodist at an all Baptist High School (learned the meaning of ‘hypocrite’ at an early age). Between the crap I’ve seen in three wars, multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, and how religious intolerance has pervaded American society (and ruined politics after 2016) – I am done with religion. There is a reason it’s a ‘faith’, not a science.

We live, we die, and if we are lucky we may get to come back as something new (a little Buddhism, a little quantum mechanics). My guess is that we only get one go around, so make the best of it while you can.

I feel that believing in something larger than ourselves keeps us humble and centered. For me, that is my Christianity. Sadly, for some, that is reason to ‘cancel’ a person.

I attend church every week. For those of you who have had bad church experiences, there are wonderful churches out there, full of loving, wonderful people. You can find them if you look.

While at home we attend church regularly. While on the road we will occasional visit a local church or watch our home church online.

Our participation was weekly – until our church removed the US and Christian flags and put them in a closet in the back room about 5 years ago! That also ended the tithing and it will stay that way until the flags are returned to the sanctuary! (Those flag sets were also donated in the 60’s by the Boy Scout Troop they sponsored, of which I was Scoutmaster!). During COVID we do get virtual clips – and once in a while will watch them to hear the word.

If your participation depends on a country flag then you aren’t that interested in your religion. Faith has nothing to do with the US flag. I’m a Christian and have no idea what a Christian flag is.

Google can be your best friend. I also bet once you see it, it will jog your memory. I bet you do know the Christian Fish (ichthys).

The Bible doesn’t mention the US flag, and if flags are what determine your faith, then your faith is weak.

Every week and holy days! Absolutely while camping and traveling. We NEVER miss and before we leave our home we research which churches are nearby and confirm Mass times with a phone call. We know before we go where and when we will attend Mass.

The question always bring to mind the statement “Going to church no more makes you a Christian than standing in a garage makes you a mechanic”. Amen

Absolutely. And that applies to all religions.
