What do you wear to church? - Page 2

post #31 of 42
We have two services at our church (methodist) a traditional and contemporary. Mostly older people attend traditional and dress nicely, shirt and tie for men skirts and dresses for women. At the contemporary service we are extremely casual--nine times out of ten I wear sweatpants and a tee shirt. We have a wide range of members from homeless people to millionaires so we aren't picky on what is worn. Our pastor always says, its that you are here that matters, God doesn't care what you wear.

The church I am interested in has a traditional service and a contemporary one...I wonder if I should go to the contemporary. I wasn't sure of the difference. but casual is better for me for sure.

IMO you'd probably like the contemporary better then the traditional. If you think you'd enjoy a more upbeat and not the slow/boring songs or sermon, go with the contemporary.

We are so used to the more modern upbeat songs now (with a few trad. ones thrown in) that when we went to a Lutheran service for DH's grandfather, it was really boring to us

Okay, I have narrowed it down to 2 churches:

The first one is a very small, old brick building..and its called "Church of the Epiphany". It says "all welcome" on the sign.

The second one is a big huge, upgraded building that looks like a school! This is the one that has both traditional and contemporary sermons. Its called "Gospel Temple".

I will talk to Josh and see which seems more like his church I guess.

I am so lost

The catholic church I go to many people were jeans. I wore khakis and a sweater and Neil had jeans on. Most churches I have gone to in my state alot of people wear jeans.

I'd definately give a few a try - There is nothing wrong with church "hopping" - Its an important way to find the church that is right for you!

If you are trying new churches, then obviously going for a less casual dress approach would be best until you know the lie of the land!

Good luck, and let us all know how it goes! Sounds like this guy is definately a keeper

In my church men are expected to wear suits and ties and women are expected to wear either dresses or skirts. Although no one will be turned away in anything they wear.

We go to church to worship our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. One way we show our reverence to them is in the way we dress.

Have you decided on one? Hope you find one you feel comfortable with attending. To be safe I would just go with business casual, usually is a safe bet IMO.

I normally wear a nice tastefully/cute dress and a sweater with it or a cute skirt and top and some heels. I never really wear pants to church, although a lot of people seem to nowdays

Welp, we didn't end up going to church on Sunday. Josh is training for a marathon right now, so he decided to join the Running Club here in London for a 30k.

When I visit him in May, I will be going to his church and meeting his community there..and I am UBER nervous about it.

I will be shopping for that outfit for weeks.
