And...Go to church.God tells us in the Bible that we should go to church regular-Ly. Knowing other people who love Jesus will help you to grow in faith. If you can’t go with your family, find a friend or relative who will take you.
It’s Important To Go To Church.The Bible tells us that a child of God needs to go to church. (Hebrews 10:25)Have you ever watched a fire burning in a fireplace?Several logs together burn brightly. But, what happens to a log if you pull it out of the flames? It gets cold and its fire goes out.That’s like what happens in God’s family. When God’s children spend time together, their love for Jesus burns stronger. You can spend time with other Christians by going to church. If you don’t belong to a church, ask someone to help you find one that teaches about Jesus.
