QUICK FYI: 4 REASONS NEW MEMBERS QUIT COMING TO CHURCH…

Too many those of us who attend church regularly criticize or judge new members who joined but drifted away.

Nothing deep here, just four things I think we should consider before we open our mouths…

1. They come to church looking for something and it doesn’t happen fast enough, so they leave.

2. They come to church looking for something and it happens quickly, then they leave.

3. We, who should be mature in the faith, run them away because we forget they are weaker, OR we aren’t nurturing enough, OR we’re too self-righteous.

4. They came seeking something other than God. This is usually the reason for 1 & 2. (That will be discussed in tomorrow’s post.)

Romans 14:1 (NKJV)

Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things.

Romans 15:1 (NKJV)

We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the week, and not to please ourselves.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

  1. I think that #3 is the main reason why most churches keep losing members.

    In fact, that is why I have left a few churches in the past.

    I do not mind going to different churches or even one good church monthly. But, joining a church is something I really do not want to do again. I have enough problems to deal at home and work.

  2. Lets not belittle church shopping either! In this day and age it is an unfortunate necessity due to false teachings creeping in or church splits.

    Have a blessed Lord’s Day, Brother!

  3. The church I have been attending for the last two years has had a major split. Half of the long standing members have left. Not many are concerned. They call it church pruning .
