The purpose of attending church weekly should not be simply to fulfill an obligation to a rule. Yes, there is a rule, in the ten commandments, to keep holy the Sabbath. However, the real purpose of attending church weekly is to aid your growth in your relationship with God, and in turn with humanity and creation. Church is filled with people who are searching for God’s graces, and when they have acknowledged those graces they share them with others. Church is filled with different types of prayer to bring one closer to God.
