Through the years, I have seen many people get out of church. Very few make plans to do it. It just happens to them by missing a service or two. Then they miss a couple more services here and a couple more services there. Pretty soon they are no longer in church. As many times as I have seen it I still never get used to it. It still hurts me every time. I know what they miss and what the local church misses. Communities are filled with people who never intended to get away from God, but did not go to church on Sunday because they developed the habit of not going. Do not ever let that habit get started! EVER!!
