Advantages of a Small Church

p1060462Small churches of less than 100 people make up 59 %  (177,000) of the 300,000 congregations in the USA.  In other words, most church congregations are considered small. Why would someone want to go to a small congregation when a person can go to a Mega Church with a plethora of programs, ministries, and ministers to cater to a persons every need?

Here are a few reasons why some prefer a smaller church.

Stronger Sense of  family

A small church is one where almost everyone gets to know one another. We celebrate each others birthdays, anniversaries, and important days. We pray for each other when in the hospital, or sick, or have a death of a loved one.  It becomes like a weekly family reunion each Sunday. You know each other, you share your lives with each other.

Greater Opportunity to Grow

In small churches people are needed. If you have a music talent, teaching talent, cooking talent, etc. and want to serve, there are plenty of places to serve. In a large church you don’t always feel that sense of being needed or wanted. I have known a number of people over the years that want to go to a mega church because they want their anonymity. This is not an option at a small church, if you go for any length of time, you will get to know people and they will know you.  It’s a matter of choice.
