It's a support network. An extended family. A place full of love and compassion that you don't find outside the church. The Church of Christ is very clannish. Descendants of Scots-Irish people. Everyone knows everyone. Very social. Like if someone is sick they bring food, if someone is in the hospital they go and sit with them, if there is any need everyone pulls together and trys to figure out a solution.

If you've never experienced it you wouldn't understand.

that's it, a support network. Back in the real old days, the only time people socialized was at church, and the rest of the time they worked. Going to church built up that sense of community.

I have a sense of community at my different 12 step groups and a spirituality as well. Still I'd like a deeper sense of community.

I'm out of the church going habit at the moment. I can easily turn on the tv or computer and watch/listen to the sermon.
