10 Reasons NOT to Attend the Community Worship Service (and our rebuttal)

Excuses (No Excuses)1.“I won’t know anyone there.” – You may be surprised who you will bump into. Besides, it’s nice to meet new folks.
2.“It’s not my religion.” – No fear. It’s not about religion, it’s about proclaiming and celebrating the truth of God’s Word (John 17:17) and isn’t that what you are more concerned with? I thought so.
3.“I’m too tired.” – You will probably still be tired if you stay home. Besides, God’s Spirit is the rest that causes the weary to rest (Isaiah 28:12).
4.“I have too much to do.” – You will always have plenty to do. Take a break. Enjoy a good time in the Lord with God’s people.
5.“It’s too far from where I live.” – You have probably driven a lot further for less important things.
6.“It will cost me too much gas money.” – You have probably spent more on far less beneficial things and going places that had no eternal value.
7.“I’m afraid I won’t like it.” I sincerely doubt that will be the case, but if so, we won’t hold you hostage. You can leave whenever you desire.
8.“I don’t want to get all dressed up.” – Don’t.
9.“I have to work late.” – Come late; it’s ok.
10.“I’m afraid I will be uncomfortable.” – There will be folks there from various walks of life. We will not intentionally put anyone on the spot. You will be treated very kind and with respect. We will do everything we can to set you at ease. Sit where you like. Participate to the degree you are comfortable. Stay as long as you like.
