  • Nope, can't really think of one LOL I mean... either ya go or ya don't.

    I get it all the time... I answer with "I don't go to church"... which is usually followed up with something like "Oh.... why?" or "Oh.... are you....uh...not.... ya know...?" LOL

    And so it begins ~~~ again ~~~

    (being a non-Christian homeschooler living in the Bible belt makes for interesting interrogation sessions ---- er, I mean conversations... yeah, that's what I meant...)

  • I hear ya! I'm kind of new to the south and this question throws me off everytime... I am really not a shy person and usually have NO problem speaking my mind but for some reason I feel ashamed to say I don't go when people ask!! Ugh..I just need to stand my ground!

  • I agree with the first repsonse....We don't have a home church at the moment or you could make something up that you dont think anyone else would know of

  • Just answer honestly, say you don't go to church, they just might want to invite you to their church.

  • Nearest fellowship is too far to drive, which is true, I just don't specify which kind of fellowship.

  • Since the church is the people and not the building.... your church is where ever you are. Sometimes for me with a small group in Mena, sometimes on my couch or in the woods on our property or my porch swing.
