    It's not about what the church can give me. It's about what I can give back to God by serving in the church. My love for God compels to be active at church. For instance, I use my singing talent to sing praises to God in the church choir on Sunday mornings.

    I am not active in church right now.  Until recently my husband was the pastor at our church and I found in the ministry that whatever opinion I had, people assumed that my husband had the same opinion. I had to be very careful because I can be very outspoken.  So during the 15 years he was the pastor at our church, I stayed in the background so I wasn't a stumbling block to his work.

    He has retired now and I can join in and give my own, honest opinion so they better look out!  :-)

    I enjoy the fellowship and getting to know others with like minds and hearts. It's also great to take time to get the focus off of yourself and get to know others and you soon realize you are not alone. Everyone has hardships. It's how you respond or handle them that shows your great Faith or lack thereof.

    I also love worshiping with brothers and sisters who share a passion and love for our wonderful Lord!

    I am active as a choir singer. I sing because I love God and i have a passion for the music I sing.

    I am the bass player in our praise and worship group.  I do it because I love playing music and because it is what God gave me the talent to do.

    I do it to give knowledge of God and also to help people understand (I am a teacher at Temple)

    We don't conduct any business, not even bake sells. We don't believe in it.

    John 2:14-16

    14. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting
    15. And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
    16.And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise

    I love the church I attend, but I'm not particularly 'active.'  I'm rather low key so I just go to honor God and be part of the congregation.
