Comfort Zones/Church Hunting

I have been thinking about going to church. I do volunteer in the church nursery. However, I haven’t been in a really long time to a service. I don’t like the cliques that seem to happen at church. I don’t like the fake introductions. I don’t like to be a new person in a place.  I get anxious when I go to church alone. This morning I got my monday morning email from Hannah and it was just what I needed to hear. It was about getting out of your comfort zones.  It is very easy to isolate yourself. I do it often. Instead of doing something that will be great for me I avoid it. My counselor calls it avoidance coping and says it doesn’t get you anywhere. If you run from experience you won’t be able to move forward. You will always be stuck in the same place. With all that said I am going try different church. I am going to try not run away when it gets awkward and uncfortamble. I am going to try not to give up if people don’t like me. I am probably going to write about my experiences . Thanks for being on this Journey with me.

  1. It is difficult to attend a new church especially if you are alone. It’s been a long time since I was church hunting. I graduated from college 32 years ago! I searched only twice for a church. The first time I attended with my cousin and the second time with my neighbor. After that, I married a pastor so church hunting took on a whole new experience.
    (If you’d like to try that, I have a single preacher son I can introduce you too! ha!)

    I would suggest finding friends who are already attending. It will be more comfortable that way.
