    We’ve been raised Christians and found our own relationships with God. Church allows us to learn and grow and develop relationships with our church family

    I`m an atheist, My mom is catholic my dad is baptist. I only got to church for events like weddings, funerals, or holidays if my mom and her family are going to midnight mass. Fi randomly goes when he feels like it, and holidays also, he is a catholic.

    It is kinda like a reset button for us. No matter what happend during the week, we go to church and remind ourselves it is about God’s Will. We reflect on our choices that week, what we have put our focus on. I love hearing the gospel and we talk about how it applies to our lives that week in the car on the way home. I love talking about he bible with him. He just got baptized Saturday so a lot of the stories are fairly new to him 🙂 Also, we are pretty active in our parish so it is nice to say hi to the other families we know. If people go just so they can get married there, that’s cool, at least they are going! Also, you know the passage about going to church with an open heart and not having a grudge against someone when you go to church? Yeah, that helps me let things go quick! I go to church because I HAVE to. I am weak, I don’t always live my life according to God’s word, I am human and though I can ask for forgiveness at home or anywhere from God, I go to church cause I want to, Because I should and because I have led a less than perfect life and am SO grateful for all the things God has blessed me with!

    Crap. I chose “we don’t go” but that’s not true. My son goes to a church’s preschool so……does that count?

    I’m an atheist and my Fiance is agnostic, so we don’t go unless it’s a special occasion for someone else.

    Sometimes I wish I could make myself believe in a god just so we would have a different sense of community. As it is now, it’s like our lack of belief is our dirty little secret.

    We registered to get married, show up and donate using checks/envelopes so they know that we were there, and plan to stay after we are married to raise our kids in the faith. We normally go about every other weekend.

    We don’t go unless someone is getting married or died.  I’m agnostic with athiest leanings, and SO is Jewish, but really just culturally, not religiously.

    because we are Christians and the bible emphasizes church (and the church community) is important for your spirtual growth and it keeps you accountable. We will be raising our children in the church as well.

    I’m an atheist but mom and siblings are Catholic. I’ll go if there’s some important reason they really really want me to go, or for people’s weddings.

    We don’t go. 

     We both believe in God but don’t believe that you have to be in a special building to be able to talk to him.

    @Paigey:  I’ve often heard recently that being athiest is the last big taboo.  I am, as well, and understand how sometimes it feels best just to keep it to yourself.  It’s not uncommon to be judged harshly!  If you are looking for the sense of community that goes along with church, have you ever looked into unitarian universalists?  I considered that for a while, but didn’t end up going that route.

    I love going to church, I learn a lot more when I am listening than when I read on my own. But I also go to be with my church family, I am very close to a lot of them and it is always nice to just be with fellow believers.
