Loving the Imperfect Church

Loving the Imperfect Church

Why should we bother with this flawed body of believers?
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

A significant percentage of those who believe in Jesus Christ do not attend church. Maybe they think the preaching is poor, the people are unfriendly, the music is too old or too new, or they simply would rather stay in bed on Sunday morning than deal with the challenges of church life.

So why should we bother with the church? Why should we return week after week, committing our hearts and lives to this body of imperfect believers? This study will explore this issue, based on an article by John Koessler for CHRISTIANITY TODAY.
