Do you attend church services when on the road for an extended period?

While you’re on the road in your RV for an extended period of time (or not!), do you usually attend church services?

We know that attending church or other religious services is a big part of many people’s lives. For some, it’s their community or even their “home.”

If you do attend church or other religious services while on the road, how often do you go? At least once a week? Often but not necessarily weekly? Sometimes? Never?

If you have any advice for others about attending church while traveling, please leave a comment. Thank you!

My “tour” is still in the planning stages, but I am gathering a directory of all the churches in my small denomination that will be more or less local to wherever I go. I know how supportive and friendly this denomination is, based on the location I’ve attended for over 15 years, and I think they will be a great resource for many things including fellowship, coffee, even a night out so I don’t have to worry about drinking at a bar/restaurant alone.

Most of the time it is via zoom from our “home” church and that is when we are home and “on the road”.We are old enough to not want to wear a mask as is still appropriate.

While we travel we go to our home church online. They went online to accommodate C-19 and have continued to this day.

Don’t attend religious services. I do remember our pastor saying that “ Christian fellowship does extend to and after the parking lot”.

think about it.

We stopped attending our local church because they removed the US and Christian flags from the sanctuary relegating them to a closet. (Lutheran). While this doesn’t directly relate to the comment by Peggy B below – it is an indication of what she stated as the state of affairs of our republic. Like it or not, religious or not – a set of moral and values of conduct are embodied in the Ten Commandments, the Constitution of the US and the Golden Rule; a large segment of our US population has strayed far away from those lofty ideals with robberies, killings and all other forms of assault – like a 6 yr. old shooting a teacher!!! It is growing worse and no, a “free” Democracy and/or republic cannot survive without moral values to live by – and live by them! It is a “divide and conquer” concept.

No, it’s not. You can have moral values without believing there are omnipotent gods who may torture you after your death.

Every life experience with a church has been full of arrogance, hypocrisy, and greed. Methodist, Catholic, Baptist, JW, you name it. I worship one-on-one, out doors if possible, and I pray FOR those in churches.

Just returned attending over a year ago. I started by using streaming services as I have a 94 yr Mom I wanted to see as often as possible before heading out on a 2 month trip. Then streamed on the road and when we reached our destination. When we returned in March I started attending in person and haven’t missed a Sunday. We are leaving on another trip and plan on attending in person.

I voted no. Most religions are very judgmental and if you don’t believe everything they preach you’re going to hell. My beliefs are, live and let live. As long as you don’t hurt others or discriminate against others that’s the only religion I need. You don’t need religion to live a good life. Just be kind to EVERYONE.

I don’t do church at home either. Until I find an Atheist meeting place, my habits will stay the same!

You might try the Unitarians. Or, the Episcopal church – we take anyone.

Don’t attend church. Haven’t in years. I don’t have to congregate with a bunch of people to have faith or at least some faith.

One of the reason I have a RV is because I belong to the “Church of the Devine Wilderness”. I try to visit as many locations as possible.

I have never felt a need to go to a special building on a specific day to worship. I have had some really great conversations with the lord all by my self sitting out in the woods or on a lake all by myself. If it is your thing then good for you, but don’t bash those that don’t. As long as they are leading a good life and not hurting others what is it to you?

One of the options should have been watching your home town church service via UTube…etc

The results of this poll illustrates a key factor of what has gone awry in our country. I pray that our Republic survives.

Our democratic republic form of government will do just fine, whether or not one believes in the existence of one or more gods.

I know many wonderful people who don’t go to church. I also know people who go to church that are judgmental hypocrites. Attending church is not required to be a good citizen.
