Finding a church near me

Finding a “Church Near me” can be a little daunting and although joining local organizations is one of the best ways to integrate into a new community, to find friends and like-minded people.
Nearly 78% of all Americans, are represented as part of an organised religion or faith, which highlights the importance religion and community in American culture and civilized assimilation.
But moving to a new town, either the next county over, or to the other side of the country finding a church that suits you and your family can sometimes be a struggle and at first will most likely not be the same as the community/ congregation you left.
At church near me we can help you find the right church for you and your 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 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.

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

Religious and community opportunity
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.

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?

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 or potential congregation

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.

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

Get involved in a church near you

This doctrine-based investigation may help you narrow down your search to one or two churches. Once you have only a few options, begin to get involved in the congregation. 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.
