    I’ve gone to like 3 different churches ;3 idk it’s hard finding people to accept you, and my original church from birth totally switched it up and it didn’t feel like home any more:(

    My dad was pastor at a Salvation army church for the Latino community, but then we were forced to move out of there due to disagreements with another Pastor. So we moved, and we found a pretty good church a couple weeks later. After something happening with the original pastor, he stepped down and my dad took his place. 3 years later, we are still there and I honestly love it. Sure we have our ups and downs, and we usually have like 20-30 people per service, but it always feels like family, and I always feel so comfortable. I hope we can stay there for many more years to come, because out of all the churches I’ve been too, this is definitely my most favorite one. (I just wish we had a youth group though :(. Being 16, I’m the oldest of all children. But hopefully God has something in store for us!)

    I’ve only been at 1 other church when I was like a toddler we started going to my church when it was 200 people on a good weekend. Now services can be so crowded theres no seating its pretty awesome! We had to start a second and latter on a third service and on Christmas we have like 5 services during the day and its still crowded no matter which one you go to. I love my church and even though sometimes I wish it was smaller I like the size because it helps us really get out and do ministry.

    Our church has about 100 people and I love it so much! It is just one big happy loving family and every Sunday is like a family reunion. β™₯

    I grew up in a non-denominational church, but the church isn’t full of many Christ-like people. So since I’m 19, I’m looking for a church that I can call home. I’ve found a church that has multiple locations throughout the state and one in another state, and I like it a lot. It’s not too big, not too small. The worship is amazing and I feel so at home there. I’m still looking at other churches just to see if God wants me to be somewhere else, but for now, I like the church I’m at.

    my church is usually pretty small, but we have a LOT of visitors and once a year we have a lot of people from the romanian community from the east usa to come to our church for a huge celebration called “descults” (romanian for ‘ barefoot’, cause we want people to feel at home where you’re barefoot) for 3 days (the weekand) there’s many teens and a BUNCH of older people and liitle kids, last year when we had it, there were almost over 500 people in our medium sized church

    My family helped start a small church plant by our house. My dad plays the drums in the band and the rest of my family helps with different things like the lights, easy worship, nursery, preschool, coffee and bagels, and even the Sunday school for kids 1-5th grade. I love to help out πŸ™‚

    I’m a pastor’s daughter, so I’ve always had church picked for me. I’ll be moving our in the next year or so & one thing I’m excited/nervous about is being able to, & having the responsibility to, choose my own church. I’m really looking forward to seeing what place God has on store for me to serve at.

    Our church is really small,we’re about 45 people total
    we have more congregations around the world but we barely started ours here in Houston not too long ago
    At first since we weren’t that many, we started gathering at one of our members house , then eventually we got a small place on 2005 and we’ve been working on re-constructing that place since then, it is a little small but its perfect for Us especially since we’re less than 50, though we are bringing more people to our church and this family is getting bigger so we’re starting to make a bigger sanctuary now πŸ˜€

    Our church is okay, but for the most part, I don’t even like going to church. I feel awkward and ignored and get almost nothing out of the sermon, and there is no youth group, but if there was I think I’d be more miserable. I feel closest to God when I’m alone and out in nature with or without my Bible. That’s my church.

    I go to an amazing church where everyone is close even though there are around 3000-5000 attending every Sunday!

    My family and I attend an extremely small church. Like, we have 20 people most Sundays, and 30 on holidays. I couldn’t ask for a better youth group though. My sister and I are the only girls, but the guys are like my brothers. I’ve loved growing up with them and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us! πŸ™‚

    I go to a church with about a hundred and fifty members. I enjoy my church, because I’ve grown up in it my whole life! All of my friends go there, and I enjoy working with the kids in jr. church and nursery! I go to a fundamental independent Baptist church.

    I went to one church for fourteen years, then we left when I was fifteen. This second church we’re going to now I LOVE. The kids are GREAT and they pretty much welcomed me in, once they got past my shyness. No one was mean and they can all make me laugh. The people at my church are great, and so is the youth pastor. He and all the other leaders are involved with us kids and their messages are really good. I cannot thank God enough for sending us to my church!

    well we have had to stop going to churches because they don’t believe the way we do and right now we are in a church that is ok and times its not one time we were at a church and the pastor thought he was god! crazy right so that didn’t last long we are still looking for just the right fit but we are happy with the church we got so far

    My dad’s a pastor too, so I wasn’t sure what to put for the last one! lol But we have a smaller sized church in a small town, but I love it!

    My church is amazing! I get to work with the youth, and we have a lot of them. πŸ˜€ You don’t see a lot of churches these days that have kids who are on fire for God and actually like church. My pastor always says that he’s getting old, and we’re getting ready to take over soon, so we have to nurture them in Christ. And there are a lot of people that I can depend on. I’m tight with my church family. I <3 them!

    Moving to California, our family didn’t really have to look for a new church, because my dad was the new Community Life Pastor : )

    We moved nine times, and I’ve been to different churches in different states. Right now, I go to the second Catholic church we went to near where we live now. I went to the first one here just because I went to school there for half a year right after we moved here. A lot of people from there go where I go now. Plus, my last church was small and didn’t have a youth group anymore, and my current church does, and I like my youth group. πŸ™‚

    I am the only one in my family who goes to church. My old church was Catholic, then I got saved when I went to a independent, fundamental, Baptist church. Now I finally found the perfect church πŸ™‚ It’s a small Independent Fundamental Baptist church very close to my house πŸ™‚
