  • alot.
    I work there, so I am there about 16 hours straight on Wed and Sun. Community service varies with the weather, probably another 3 hours a week.

  • On average, I'm probably there about 4 hours/week - 1.25 hours for Mass, 1 hour for teaching, and the rest is socialization/faith formation meetings.

  • sunday mornings is bible school 9:30-10:30am,
    sunday nights is choir practice 5:00-6:00pm and worship service 6:00-7:30pm
    Wednesday nights is bible study-6:00-7:00
    Tuesday nights is Teen/kids night -6:00-7:00
    Once a month we cook meals that we take to the elderly
    and I volunteer at our church food bank the first saturday of every month.

    I also do playdates with the other mothers/children every friday morning at our church 11:00-12:30 and then we do a lunch.
    I have an amazing church family and I love it.

  • None as an adult. As a child we spent about 10 hours a week at church and I would say the majority of that was learning.

  • I haven't been to church in 2 years. We have moved and have not found a church yet.

  • We go to church every Sunday (almost) and we spend probably 1 night a week additional at the church for a dinner, fundraiser, bible study, something like that.

  • Clearly not enough!

    Answer by meooma at 9:44 AM on Apr. 26, 2011

  • This week I'll be there about 40 hours. I am cooking for a retreat and then next week I am hosting first communion kiddos. Usually I end up there 10 to 12 hours per week
