Church Attendance and Hebrews 10:25

There have been a couple of other threads recently about church attendance, but I thought it would be interesting to read how others view the frequency of church attendance in light of Hebrews 10:24-25.

24 “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching”. NKJV

Obviously, church attendance is vital to our spiritual growth and maturity. That being said, the writer of Hebrews did not say that church attendance is compulsory every time the doors are open. Neither, however, did he say it wasn’t, so are we left to decide for ourselves how frequently we attend church? Do we follow our conscious/convictions and leave it at that? As I’m now a non-pastor/staff person, that is how I approach it.

Obviously, if you are a pastor or a staff person, you’re going to be there every time the doors are open. That’s a given, I think. Do you then expect your members to be there every time you are?

Furthermore, has your opinion changed over time about the frequency of church attendance? In my own life it has. I’ve gone from 4 times a week (or more) to a couple of times a month. I do, however, find myself ministering to people outside the church far more than I ever did when I was going all the time. In fact, I’ve found a whole “congregation” in my neighborhood that don’t go to any church, but who are more than willing to listen to me talk about Jesus with them.

So, how frequently do you attend church?
