  • when my husband and i were in college (about 2 years ago) we both went through a rebelion. my dad is a pastor, and because of issues w him, i let it be an issue between me and God. so no, i did not go to church whil on campus. my husband did for the most part, despite his other rebelions.

  • When I was in college, we had a set amount of chapel credits that we had to have. So I went to traditional church services on campus once per week and a contemporary one once per week. There was transportation to a miriad of churches on Sundays and I only went a few time to those. I couldn't find a church that I liked.

  • My kids aren't in college yet. I attended an ARP college, so nearly all of my classmates attended some church or another in town. As a life-long atheist, I, of course, slept in.

  • I did occasionally at a church on campus. I don't think any of my kids ever went to church. But they are wonderful people and just going to church doesn't make a whole lot of difference. If you have a good heart and are honest, that will be just as good.
