  • My friend used to this withme too, eventually i just had to lay it out for her. i told her i appreciate the invites but i just dont do church. its not my scene and i dont go for any reason short of a wedding or a funeral, so unless someone i know is getting married, or lord forbid has passed away i'm not going. and then i thanked her again

  • Let's say I'm your friend and I keep inviting you to church events (wait, do I know you? is it me??)

    This would work for me; does it work for you?:

    "KateD, look, I love you. You're great. But I have to tell you I really don't want to come to church with you. I promise if I change my mind I will let you know, but for now I would really appreciate it if you would lay off. Because I do think you're great, but this is really getting old."

  • Is it a church that you don't agree with in doctrine? She probably just wants to spend quality time with you and that is her way of showing it. Her church is probably very special to her and she just wants you to go with her. She'll get the picture after you say "no" a few times. But give her a try and see if you like it.

  • Are you of that faith? If not you could say something like " it is nice that you want me to go to church events with you but I really am not interested in going. I feel religion is a very personal thing and i have my own religion/faith/beliefs that i practice. I hope you will respect my wishes to not attend church functions with you. i do like you, and i would love to spend time with you doing things other than church events,"
