Does It Matter if We Gather?

Even before the pandemic there was a well-researched decline in America for participating church meetings.
Among the biggest reasons for decline in going to church meetings in America is our affluence and our electronic connectedness .
Remember: What is vital for some should NOT become normal for most.
The New Testament knows nothing about belonging to Jesus without belonging to other followers of Jesus:
1. The first Christians were born and added into a family devoted to four passions .
2. Faith cannot be motivated by convenience, but by conviction .
3. A growing faith is saturated with God’s point of view and being together with God’s people.
Primary Scriptures: Acts 2:1; Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:24, 25.
