  • I attend church and have for years, since I was a child. I take my 3 kids and dh comes as well (when he's not working). I am volunteer in the children's ministry, nursrey and children's church. I also take on a lot of the cooking jobs for different events like the christmas dinner and other food services. I am currently involved with the ladies ministry and bible studies. I am looking to get involved in creating other ministries in the church. We also have a food ministry preparing meals for families in need in the church and I make and deliver some of those meals.

  • Not since my mom lost the ability to force me to go. I only set foot in church for weddings and funerals (and my own wedding was outdoors, NOT officiated by a religious official). I had enough of that shit to last a few lifetimes.

  • No, I haven't been to church since I was a little kid. I do consider myself a Lutheran though:)

  • I used to be very involved in my church. I taught Vacation Bible School, I was in choir, I helped out at youth group. At least, I was until they asked me not to bring my autistic child to church anymore. HOwever, I was asked to continue to bring him to Sunday School as they were hoping that particular teacher would quit. My child was not violent in church, but he could make noises. I guess not all of God's children are welcome.

  • No. I haven't went to church since I was a kid except for a wedding. My own was done first by a judge then the actual wedding was in a community center with my BIL doing the ceremony. :-)

  • Nature is the only Church I have... But No, I haven't been to a Christian Church in years, and it was for a funeral. I didn't have kids the last time I went and it wasn't for religious reasons so there was no involvement... I also do not involve my kids in my religious beliefs & practices, but I am very involved in my own beliefs - I just don't need a brick and mortar church to have an outstanding relationship with my Gods.
