My friend has invited me to go to her church with her this upcoming Sunday. I was quiet for like a min just because i was susprised by that. Lol my family and other past friends have never invited me to church and Ive never really been curious anyway but now Im gonna attend a church service and by choice. 馃槺
Also being invited to a baptism or wedding doesnt count. I mean service like sunday.

My mother was a Sunday school teacher at the southern Baptist church. So i have been many times.

Once i had a friend invite me to her church and i never went back. It was terrifying. They yelled, danced, were speaking in tongue, rolling on the floor, etc.

Im not religious, I was till I was 16. I had a friend a few years ago try to get me to take scientology seminars, they call it a religion but I call it a cult.
Thankfully she left scientology

@FreeSpirit1 all religions are cults esp Scientology

Yes, at four years old one of the best offers I accepted.


ElisbchM
Yes but it was a long time ago. A young woman asked me to go that i hadn't known for very long. We ended up being a couple for many years. 馃槉
MontanamanM
Yes, every so often, a friend or neighbor will invite us to attend.
You definitely need to know what denomination and or type of church,
Sometimes, communion is different, or the Lord's Prayer, and some hymns. 馃憤馃馃檹馃槆馃グ

Nah, my disdain for religion isn't a secret. It ruined my childhood and left me with a lot of issues I'm still dealing with today.
thepreposterouspanda36-40, M
@mooncrest02 I'm slowly working on getting through it. It's just hard when they still don't think they did anything wrong. They've gone back down the religious rabbit hole at this point too and I really don't have time for it after everything I've been through. 馃槄
mooncrest0231-35, F
@thepreposterouspanda you have to leave them be and just heal on your own馃様
thepreposterouspanda36-40, M
@mooncrest02 yup, that's pretty much where I'm at. I love them, but I'm not really interested in being around them anymore.

The only reason I am is for my niece and nephew. :)

Only for a wedding and some funerals, but not for a regular service.
mooncrest0231-35, F
@NerdyPotato no those dont count imo. I mean a service.
Yes. They usually wanted to fix me up with someone they knew. 馃う馃徎鈥嶁檧锔

Yes. And each time I have politely declined.

My friend invited me to church with her in grade 6
TexChikF
Yes. Which denomination/church?
hippyjoe195561-69, M
Good for you. I hope you are able to get something out of the service. If you don't mind me asking, What kind of church is it or do you know?
hippyjoe195561-69, M
@mooncrest02 Good to hear that it is a Christian Church. I was asked to come to a Baptism at a Lutheran Church. It was interesting to go to that church since they conduct their services much differently than the Anabaptist Church I regularly attend.
mooncrest0231-35, F
@hippyjoe1955 im glad its christian too id probably not go if it was mormon, catholic or scientology. Lol
hippyjoe195561-69, M
@mooncrest02 Yes I am glad for you as well. I do hope you get something out of the service.
I have been to different church services many times. But the cultish types scare me the most and I will be damned if I become a member of one of them. Yet there were some that were tranquil and fit more with my personality
SomeMichGuyM
Yes, many times.

The local-ish Jehovah's Witness (JW) people have often sent out something about Easter, but I have been invited to various services.
mooncrest0231-35, F
@SomeMichGuy what about from family or friends?

ArtieKatM
Yes - I've been to some baptisms (of adults) too.
RedBaronM
Synagogues, yes. Churches, no.

Yeah and sometimes declined, sometimes gone. Im happy with where I stand on the whole thing, so go for support
mooncrest0231-35, F
@V00doo yea I think she said she started going to support her friend and she ended up liking it. But i forgot to ask what kind of church they are like christian or catholic... lol
@mooncrest02 I guess as long as you're not forced into something it could be a nice day of general reflection. X
