Choosing a church is an important part of life: church is where we meet others who have the same spiritual desires and belief system that we do. It’s a place we find comfort and fellowship and learn more about living a Christian life. There are a few things you can do to find a new church family, and the journey doesn’t have to be a difficult one. If you are already a member of a particular denomination then narrowing down a church to find may be easier. If you aren’t a member of a denomination, then you’ll have a few more things to consider. Use the interactive map below to help find your next church community…

Moving to a New AreaMoving is tough. There are so many details involved with moving and it can become especially tough when it involves long distance moves and gets harder yet if you have a big family. One of the tougher things about moving is the actual leaving. You leave the places that you know… the people that you know… your networks and relationships… and your spiritual communities. Finding a church can be tough, but leaving one and then finding a new one that meets your needs can be really tough.
Understanding What You Love About Your Current ChurchOne of the best things you can do for yourself is take stock of what it is about your current community of faith that is so attractive and spiritually healthy. These are the reasons that you are there and will help in finding your next church home. Of course there are going to be some things that you don’t like about the current church that you are in but you will find things you don’t like about every single church in the world… If you really are leaving a church because you are upset with it, it would still be good to get an understanding about some of the things about that church that are good. Every church has its positive elements. These things will help you in your search.
