When Your Church Lets You Down

Jun 14, 2017 | 2 Comments

by Motte Brown

Are you disappointed in your church? Are you feeling ignored? Are you thinking of leaving? Before you do you may want to ask yourself these questions from Kevin DeYoung’s blog post “Dealing With Disappointment in the Church.”

  1. Did I ever ask for help?
  2. Have I overlooked opportunities to fit in and get to know people?
  3. Is it realistic for the leaders to give to every person in this church the kind of care I expect?
  4. If I really wanted to be loved and noticed why did I stop showing up?
  5. Am I willing to consider that I may be at fault more than I realize?
  6. Is it possible I’ve overlooked ways the body has cared for me because I was hoping a different part of the body would care for me?
  7. In general have I found this church and these leaders to be unloving and unsupportive?

If you think your church has missed an opportunity to love and serve you in some way, the first step in overcoming your disappointment may be to consider these questions. Go read the full blog for context.
