Why did you skip church?  You probably had a perfectly well thought out excuse. . . right?  Here are a few reasons your presence at Church is required.  

Your presence in worship is a HUGE encouragement to your pastor who has worked hard to communicate God’s Word effectively.

Your presence in worship is an encouragement to your fellow believers who need to see others on the same journey. (Heb 10:25)

Your presence in worship is necessary for your own edification as your heart, soul, and mind are encouraged by the preaching of God’s Word. 

Your presence in worship communicates your priorities to a watching world. 

Most importantly. . .  your presence pleases God.  (Heb 10:25)
