This following information is from the recent Christian Chronicle (.org) site that reports on a Gallup Poll showing that members of the “Church of Christ” have higher attendance records that all other groups. The exact details of the study are available on the Gallup web-site to paying members. But here are the barebone essentials.
Some might see it as a good sign that 68% of members of the church indicate regular attendance, but is it good if almost 1 in 3 members of the church are not attending? The Hebrew writer said,
“24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Heb. 10:24,25)
As we encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ to live godly lives, let us encourage them to assemble at every opportunity.
