The Bible says,
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24, 25 NIV
I believe that this is an exhortation to join and be active in a church body. There are many different types of churches that meet people in different places but regardless of how it is presented the important thing is to be involved with our church family, our brothers and sisters in Christ, so that we can encourage one another. There are lots of other reasons for going to church (to learn, to use your gifts, to fellowship, to grow in the Lord) and this is why meeting together is so important.
Here is a video that is so fun that I thought I ought to share it AND it happens to be relevant, too!
September 16th 2012 may already be in the past but the invitation is always open!
