ATTENDANCE IS MORE THAN JUST AN OBLIGATION: IT IS FELLOWSHIP

Introduction

Do you attend worship services regularly? Why, or, why not?
If you do not attend services regularly, you are far from alone. According to a Pew Research poll from May of 2014, 33% of responders attend services "once or twice a month/a few times a year," while 30% attend "seldom/never." The largest group who responded "Once a month/a few times a year," were the 30-49 age group, at 36%, followed by 50-64, at 26%, 18-29, at 25%, and 65+, at 13%. The number who responded, "Seldom/never," is almost identical to the previous group. This breakdown of this group is 30-49, at 36%, 18-29, at 25%, 50-64, at 24%, and 65+, at 13%.
Now, notice the percentage of those in the survey who responded, "At least once a week." The largest group is the 30-49 age group at 32%, followed by 50-64, at 28%, 65+, at 24%.
Overall, only 36% responded that they attend services "at least once a week!"
These are troubling statistics! There are a number of reasons why. Perhaps the most familiar reason to us is Heb 10:25:
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
However, in this article I want us to explore another important reason to attend worship services: Attendance is more than just an obligation: attendance is fellowship.
