Find the best church for my family

Define what you want in a local church

Before you start any type of search,  think about what you want from your new church and your new community/congregation, as it will help guide you towards the church and community that you want to be part of. Some of the characteristics might include:

Denomination:

What are your beliefs, it would be ideal before you select the church you want to ensure your beliefs and ideals are the same as your intended congregation; ie.

Distance:

How far away are you willing to travel for both your ideal church and the community of people that congregate there.

Size:

Size does matter when it comes to congregations. Different sized gathering can invoke different emotions and deciding which emotion appeals to you is just as important as the prayers you choose.

Logistics:

What service times work best for you when it comes to services and prayer groups

Communication Medium:

Would you prefer to have an online community or are you going old school, and need physical connection and a physical place to worship.

Religious and community opportunity:

Are there any specific opportunities you had in your past church you would like to have again? Often congregations offer clerical positions, such as voluntary opportunities like youth group leader or Sunday school teacher.

Religious Focus:

Even if your denomination is represented in the church you are looking at, do they focus on a particular type of sermon, or do they focus on the things that are important to you. What type of sermons do you prefer;

    • scripture-based
    • lessons applicable to daily life, or
    • a combination of the two?

Find Several Local Congregations and Attend Their Meetings

Once you have a clear picture what you want and need from your church and its congregation, research, research, research. use the internet, your current community may know people in that area or may have recommendations. Use sites like “Church Near me” and get a feel and understand the communities you may be involved in.

If you cant find much online, it doesn’t mean to say the church is not for you, it just means that they may not have someone who is tech saavy and can provide the online support they need.

Things to consider when Looking for a new church

  5. What don’t you like.

Ecclesiastical Leaders: Speak to the leaders of the congregation

After spending some time researching and talking to as many people as you feel comfortable about your future congregation options, contact the clergy in the churches you believe are the right fit for you and your family.

Depending on the medium you are looking at using, ie online or in person, it would be ideal to set aside some time to discuss your beliefs with the congregational leaders to ensure your beliefs and your faith will be supported by the Church and the community.

Speak To members of the congregation

During your first meeting, introduce yourself to some of the other members-especially if you recognize people from your new neighborhood. While you may feel hesitant to reach out to strangers, building relationships with your fellow congregation members represents one of the best ways to determine how well you’ll fit in at a particular church.

Explore the Doctrine of Potential Congregations

At this point, you can begin to discuss the church’s particular doctrinal practices. While learning more about each church’s doctrine may not help you make your final decision, this information can help you eliminate any churches that definitely do not hold to your particular beliefs.

Get Involved in a Church near you

Take note of how it feels to volunteer alongside other members, participate in worship ceremonies, and attend regular meetings.

If you haven’t made a firm decision before you get involved, keep your mind open. It’s all right to move closer toward multiple churches to find the perfect fit.

Remember as you look for a new church home that no church will feel exactly the same as your old one. But also remember that the new right church for you will offer new opportunities for growth and spiritual discovery.

God has a plan for you

Of course he does, he’s God.

The bible details many of Gods Plans, plans for nations, plans for groups, churches, of course a plan for you. Isaiah 46:10–11 is a great synopsis of want he wants us to know: “My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.

What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do.” It can be hard to acknowledge that this is not only a plan for his plan for the world however it is a plan for every individual.

Scripture is a great place to start to understand how we know he has a plan for you, in particular he told Jeremiah; “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations”, Jeremiah 1:5. This was a response to Jeremiah’s  conception that the God’s plan was reactive, it was pre-emptive suggesting that his plan had made the child for a very specific component of his plan.

God’s plan is not a straight line to an end goal, rather a series of often confusing events and bumps that lead to his desired result. ed with detours, sudden stops, and confusing turns. Have Faith in his will, for he has faith in you.
