FRIENDS OF RIVERS OF JOY BAPTIST CHURCH

WHEN IS ATTENDING A LOCAL CHURCH GOOD?
If you are a "Christian" a believer, and a Baptist, you know attending a local church is what Christians who love the Lord do. We all know that. On the positive side, many will go to church on Sunday, (some on Saturday) some will go Sunday Evening, and some on Wednesday. Many really love to attend their church services. Many enjoy singing in the choir, singing special, teaching a children's class, teach the teens, and adult classes. Some even like hearing the preaching/teaching from the Pastor/Teacher.
-
To really love getting up in the morning, and getting ready, and being ready for worship, fellowship and encouraging others, is really a joy. Many experience that each week.
-
To walk in to the church building and experience and know and believe there is going to be worship, and fellowship is joyfulness at its best. You find yourself glad you are their, before you even pull up on the parking lot. You have your Bible, note book, and you are ready, and you are thirty minutes early.



You sing in the choir, you sing with the other folks, you talk to others, you witness the joy of others that have joined you to worship, and have fellowship, read the scripture and pray, and listen to the preaching and teaching, and you are filled with the joy of the Lord.


You are excited to teach your Bible class, you are excited to give an offering to the Lord, you are excited that you have Christians friends who join you in this wonderful joy of the Lord.


NOW THAT IS WHAT CHURCH EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE LIKE. And for a lot of people that is what really happens. And you know how that happens? YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN.
