    I went to church as a child and I still go now. My daughter celebrated her First Communion in April and I hope that she continues to go. All of my siblings went to church, and out of the 4 of us, I’m the only one that goes on a somewhat regular basis. Do I go every Sunday? No. But I’m darn close during religious ed time and so so in the summer. I have God with me all the time and don’t need church to tell me that he’s there, but I don’t think that’s the point of church. I think their point is to bring people together who believe the same thing so they can celebrate and hear the gospels and learn what Jesus taught.

    yes until we were old enough to watch the vikings

    I went regularly from about age 6 to 14 or so. I also attended a Lutheran school. Before that, my parents didn’t agree on religion so we didn’t go to church. After that, it was up to us, and I preferred to study religion on my own. I also went through a period when I doubted God.

    Now that I have kids, I think I should find a church and start going. It’s on my list of things to do. I do want my kids to be knowledgeable about God and religion, but finding the right house of worship is no simple matter. Some churches are filled with judgmental folks, some are too expressive for my cold personality, some want too easy access to your soul, you know what I mean? Some are racist and my girls are non-white. Some look down on non-traditional families, which we are. I know I should start looking, but everytime I think of it, I tell myself, like you’re gonna get up and get the girls bathed and dressed on an early Sunday morning just to check out the atmosphere of a church? And then I find something else to think about. There is always next year.

    Yes, I did go, to church, and my kids did go up til last year, they didnt go last year or this year yet. Vacation bible school is coming up. I went when I was younger, but after a few years of it, me and butchie, dedcided to drop dede and tammy off to there classroom, and then go sit on the bus til church was over. We always went to the puppet shows, lol…. I am wanting to go if I can find the time to go, i think when school starts again, I might start. My children we be going for sure.

    When I was younger we did go to Sunday School. But now I don’t go to church. For a couple of reasons, One it’s too early!! I sleep in on the weekends 🙂 (Or try to) Another reason is we haven’t found the right one for us. When we go visit Jason’s family in SC we go to church there sometimes. They have so much fun. You’re not sitting there wondering how much longer its gonna be until you get out of there. I would definately go if I found a church like that up here. Once Hunter starts getting older I believe that we should be going to church.

    I have always attended church. It is a big part of who I am. Our entire family attends church and the kids participate in the youth programs. In fact, one daughter is at a church sponsored camp this week. I am excited to hear her report of camp events when she returns home.

    I pretty much went to church my whole life. My boys did as well. Jason can joke all he wants but he went to church, Sunday school, vacation bible school and confirmation. We belonged to a church and one of our youth pastors did “something” but nobody said “what” that something was with a teenage girl in our congregation. Both my boys loved this man and his wife was very active in the church and also a music teacher in the district I worked in.

    Something inside me snapped and I felt so hurt and disillusioned. I’ve never belonged to an organized religion since then. I feel I have God in my heart and I talk to him all the time. I will admit however, I do get a happy feeling going to church and my granddaughters first communion really touched me and I’m not even catholic. I feel kids should go if only to teach them something. Education and knowledge of something is never lost.

    That’s funny shane!! Um, no I never went to church as a child and the only way you’d get me in a church now is by either dying or getting married. Just not my thing. When my Dad died I went through a tough time, I was pregnant and realized he’d never be able to meet his grandson. I felt guilt for a lot of things. My Aunt said something to me that I’ll never forget and I say it to myself often. She knew I did not go to church. She said to me, “your heart is your temple and as long as you have heart you have your Daddy.” And I believe that. I’ve asked Bailey if he’s interested in going to church and he says no. He wants to know all about God and heaven but he’d rather go to the library to find that stuff out:) To each their own!

    Each religion teaches their version of the Bible and the stories in it. I do believe that you have to find that one that speaks to you. I also think that I have been sitting at this computer too long today! I think it’s sad when you ask children what’s the meaning of Christmas or Easter and they say Santa and the Easter Bunny! I do expect my children to go to church so that when they become adults they have the info they need to make informed decisions about what they want to do with that aspect of their life.

    I went to church as a child and I go now. There was a point right out of High School where I stopped going but that only lasted for a year or so. My youngest daughter attends Catholic school and my oldest did as well up until high school.

  12. Jane says:

    I did go to church when I was younger and I still do go but not as often as I should during the summer. During the fall and winter we do go as my almost 4 year old goes to Sunday school and when I commit, I feel it’s important to go. He just loves it.

  13. Tosha says:

    I went as a kid with my grandmother. I no longer go. I actually refuse to go to church. I let my kids go with their grandparents as I don’t force my beliefs on my kids. When they are old enough to make their minds up about church,religion, and god they’ll make their own minds up..

  14. Ali says:

    I didn’t go as a child because my parents were never in the same place long enough and they weren’t into that kind of thing. I do go now as my husband did and my little boy does as well. He loves to go and so do I. I wish I’d had it when I was younger so I would have been given the chance to learn more at a younger age. Kids don’t know these things unless they are exposed to it.
