Why Go To Church?
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.  "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons.. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them.  So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor.  It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
"I've been married for 30 years now.  In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.  But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.  But I do know this.. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work.  If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.  Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"
Though I agree with this story, Church is so much more.  It is not just about what I need for spiritual nourishment.  It is about how I contribute to the life of others in the church as well.  When one person is missing, we all are less than the potential that we have together in Bible study and worship!  Come see what God is up to!  You may discover your own nourishment, while providing some nourishment for others.
I look forward to getting to know you, and seeing what God has in store!
Blessings,
Tony
