Finding the Right Church to Join
If you are moving to a new city, one of the most challenging things that you are going to experience is that you have to find a new church. If you had lived in one city for your whole life, and now a couple of decades later you are moving because of work or university, then it means that you have to find a new church. And it means that you will have to give up those comforts that you were so used to enjoying. Even though there are great churches around the country, there is something special about the church where you grew up.
What we suggest is that you look up a list of the churches that are in the city where you are moving. Then you can figure out which one of those churches aligns with the denomination of the church where you live right now. This will give you an understanding of the churches that will have the same or similar values as the church you are a part of currently. We believe this is a great way to find a good match, because you do not want just any church in the area.
Most churches have events and days where you can visit and check out the location and sit in on an event. Whether it is on Sunday or some other day, it will give you a chance to see how things are done at that church. We would encourage you to have these visits at a few churches. You are not always going to find the ideal place at the first time of asking. It is much better to explore the options and bide your time until you find the right fit.
