Is going back to church something you are feeling called to in this holiday season? If so, this podcast episode will give you practical tips on finding a new church.

I'm acknowledging all the elephants and sharing some of my own personal experiences about feeling as if attending church was pointless. I know it sounds harsh, but it appeared that most church attendees were going through the motions. I wanted no part of it until my friend convinced me to try one more time.

Because of Natasha, I gave attending a local church one more chance and I'm grateful for her push. Watching online, settling for a podcast with your favorite preacher's messages... (Still love a good Steven Furtick message!) God wants more for you and that is what this podcast is all about!

In this episode, you will be challenged to:

  • Acknowledge personal fears, rejections, and past hurts that could have you self-protecting and avoiding
  • Recognize your need for local believers to pray and connect with
  • Stop living offended and instead use it as an opportunity for intentional conversations
  • Recognize when avoidance of what is uncomfortable gets in your way of spiritual growth
  • Trust in God's guidance and provision, remembering my favorite bible verse; Matthew 6:8: Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
  • Be courageous and take steps to go back to church, even if it's terrifying.
  • Reflect on any past church hurt, remembering that people hurt you, not God and that it's important not to put the church on a pedestal. The church is full of broken people who are in need of a Savior and help.
  • Research churches in your area, considering factors such as location, denomination, and community involvement, and pick three to try out.
  • Attend a church service or if you are really uncomfortable, start with a smaller step like a Trunk or Treat or special service churches offer throughout the year, keeping an open mind and heart.
  • Get involved in a church community by joining a small group, or ministry, or volunteering in an outreach program.
  • Reflect on any past experiences of rejection or abandonment and how they may be influencing your feelings about attending church
  • Remember that God is calling you back to the church not only for your own growth but also to be a part of a community of believers and serve others.

I've coached dozens of clients through this process over the last year and watched them achieve so much more than they ever thought possible. I'm confident I can help you, too! Want to work with me in January? I'd love to help you! Please email me at realtalktribe@mail.com and we can set up a call.
