Looking for a new church

I was raised Catholic, stopped going to church when I was old enough to drive myself, but I did finish my Catholic highschool. There are many things I did not agree with, had too many questions that no one could answer. I am spiritual, I pray, just not to the God I was raised to belive in (fear actually).
Now that I'm older and married with a young child, I'd like to join a church. Or congregation, or whatever. Somewhere that no beliefs or rules are forced on us, somewhere to make friends with people who just want to live their life and gather together weekly or monthly, somewhere that kids are welcome and safe. I guess maybe non-denominational. Open minded. Any recommendations? Can you tell me a little about your church? I'm open to anywhere that welcomes new members, and maybe has a youth group.
BTW, please do not bash Catholics. Do not bash anyone please. I don't care what you think about religions you don't belong to, only those you do. And if you think I'm asking too much, move right along :) THANKS!

  • You might want to try a non-denominational church. The one we attended was literally a melting pot of beliefs. We had former Baptists, Catholics, Pentecosts, Episcopalians, Pagans, and Atheists,and everything in between. And, since it was non-denominational, we just learned out of the Bible,and no one belief was pushed on anyone. It was wonderful. We moved,is the reason we no longer attend it.

  • Try looking at a Unitarian or UCC church.

  • The ones I'm most interested in here are a Unitarian Universalist Church ( and a Unity Church. Both seem very accepting of other beliefs and people of different backgrounds. GL!
