Do you go to church frequently?

Honestly I was not able to go to church regularly because most of the time I have a work even weekends, I only go to church several times in a month. Although I am not able to go to church I am still praying directly to god to thank him for all the blessings that he is given to me and for my family. I think as long as we are having a communication to god even in external way without going to church it is still worth it as long as it is true and deep within sour hearts.

It's good to hear that you still pray to God even if you don't go to church regularly @ junrose123. I actually know a lot of people who doesn't pray anymore and worse doesn't go to church. As for me, I visit the church regularly because I'm still a student and I'm hoping to be as consistent after I finish my studies.

Honestly I'm not, maybe just 2x a year or occasionally, just during my birthday and Christmas.  But I do pray every time I will ride my motorcycle, and its everyday.  Beside I hate to go to church right now.  I hate how the priest using the church for the political interest.  They are always encouraging people to fight against the government.

I don't frequently go to the mass every Sunday but whenever I have some errands I make sure to visit the church whether there's a mass or not. When I experienced depression a long time ago I prayed every night to God it helped me to be strong again but recently I stopped praying again every night because of struggles that I've been through last year. But now slowly I'm regaining again my faith in God. Religion couldn't save us, only God can save us so it's important to not stop having faith and believing in him.

I do go to church every week, but I am unable to go on the same day. Sometimes I go on Monday or Sunday or Saturday because my working days are not set, but when I have some spare time, it doesn't matter the day I am going to the church.

I don't. I don't want to say I have lost my faith but I think I have. I have taken a more spiritual approach to faith, than a religious one that involves following religious dogma. I believe that God is in me and not sitting somewhere in the sky with a stick waiting to cast judgement upon me. The behaviour of religious leaders in my country also discourages me from going to church. I see no compassion or good sense. I see in them greed and entitlement. This is not behaviour I would like me or my children to imitate. I think church is supposed to feed your spirit. In the current climate this is rare to find.

In the christian community going to church every Sunday has been a tradition already but sadly I was not able to make it to church regularly compare when I was still a student. It is very rare now that I could go to church that is why I am just praying every night  for him before I sleep for giving me another day live and for making me a great person everyday. Thanks to god that after all the hardship that I encountered in my life still he is always their to guide me and to protect me from any harm or danger.

I did the same things before, specially when I was in college, I usually go to Quiapo church every Friday, because I was studying in one of the school in University belt manila before.  But right now, I think just every special occasion, beside I hate to go to church right now, because of some priests who using the church for political interest.

I'm kinda shy to admit that I only attend mass whenever there is an occasion like my birthday, my children's birthday, Christmas, or Holy week. But I still manage to pray everyday and be thankful to God about everything. You see, it's not how often we attend masses that will define if we are going to be saved but on how are relationship is with God and towards others.

Well, honestly, I don't frequently go to church every Sunday unless someone invites me especially my friends or relatives but it does not mean that I don't have God at all. Prayer is the most important thing that I should never forget to do everyday. I usually do a solemn prayer on my own and I also read the bible for me to keep my knowledge about God's story and teachings. Yes, I know going to church is also very important for religion activity but I think it won't make you a bad and nonreligious person if you can't go celebrate God's grace at church.

It was not been a hobby for me to go to church regularly since I usually make some silent prayers on myself anytime and anywhere I want. Communicating to god is not only through church since we can talk to him directly in many ways as long as we do it sincerely and in good hearts.

I don't often attend mass on Sunday but I often visit church during weekdays. I like to say my prayers to thank God for every blessing He bestowed on me. I like to seek for forgiveness and peace of mind. For keeping me and my family safe and good health. I find comfort and guidance every time I say my prayers. God is always good all the time.

Sometimes I am visiting to church during my idle time to give thanks for him and say sorry for all the things that I have done wrong for myself and for the people around me. I feel like I have a big sin to god for not attending the mass every Sunday due to my work and a lot of commitments. I wish that he will forgive me and understand me since it was not really my intention to do that. I wish that he would always blessed and guide me for everything that I will do and protect my family form any danger and always give them a along life.

I'm a devout Christian. It's very edifying and uplifting to come together as a group and be surrounded by other believers. We worship together, pray together, and hear the word of God together. It's a very positive experience that I always look forward to, and helps sustain me as I start a new week.

Not anymore. I used to go to church every Sunday with my family when I was younger, but ever since I started medical school, I am unable to go as often anymore. I just make sure to attend mass on special occasions. I still pray every day though - my faith is still the same.

It's always good to pray. Seeking God's wisdom and guidance is needed to survive in our daily existence. We should keep our constant communication to God. No matter what status and situation we are into. Having a relationship with God gives us inner peace and confidence. It best to keep our faith strong. God is good and He will never abandoned us.

I would love to go to church every week and serve. I do church volunteer work, and I help teach kids about the word of God. Sadly, it's been so hectic! I miss being in church and just feel so comfortable and free. There's so much love there from everyone I work with. I honestly miss them now.

Yes I agree with you and I am always praying everyday whenever I have the chance to do it since I really believe in the power of magic. Prayer heal our wounded spirits and make us more stronger from any problems that we encounter in life. As much as possible I am trying to go to the church whenever I can  so that I can say thank you to almighty for all the good things that he did for me despite of being a sinner.

I regularly goes to church when I was young and when I grow up, I am not able to do it because of my busy schedule. I only got one day off and still I am busy about it but I always remember about our God's grace. I always pray for the food, travel, for another day and still it felt like I am secured and blessed when I do it. When there are also problems in my life, I will communicate to him and it was just stress relieving.

I don't. As a child, my parents were extremely religious and almost always forced me to go to Church. Growing up, I started questioning a lot of their beliefs and they didn't have enough answers. Now, as an adult, I don't go to Church. I do have my own beliefs, but I think that a place of worship is not necessary to be able to connect with God.

I go to church every Sunday because I am an altar server and I have duties there. Serving there is a great thing for me knowing that I am under the protection of God and that I should always be thankful to him. If not for classes, I could even go there during weekdays.

Growing up in a Christian country, I've learned that going to Church every Sunday is a must. That is why I together with my family make it a habit to attend mass together not just every Sunday but in many special occasions in our lives because we believe that attending to mass is the highest praise we can give to the Lord. But I honestly respect those people who don't go to church regularly because I know that we have different ideals and beliefs that we believe.

Definitely yes is my answer to this question. I frequently go to church. Every Sunday I go to church. I would do my best not to miss church. it is because I have learned from the ten commandment, one day is for rest and worship to God. Six days is our time of work but one day is given to God for worship and relaxation for the body.
