Tuesday News for February 06, 2024

Most Christians will change churches at some point in their life.  But it’s happening more often than it used to. In a recent Lifeway Research survey, 60% of individuals (polled) indicated a physical move as the main reason for their change.

The other 40% gave a variety of different answers for changing churches including…

Either something changed about the church they didn’t like, the church wasn’t fulfilling their needs, or respondents became disenchanted with the pastor or church.

Bottom Line: As Christians, we should all find the church that’s right for us and where we feel we can best walk with Him (Jesus) and grow in our faith.
