One of the features I hope you’ve found helpful here at the blog is the “Searching for a new church?” tab at the top of this page. There are several helpful resources at that tab, including articles on what to look for in a church, resources on church planting, and several good church search engines.
There’s also a link to an article called Reader Recommended Churches. This article contains a long list of churches in various areas which my readers have recommended as doctrinally sound.
If you follow me on Facebook, you probably know I request that readers recommend churches, and also invite people to request recommendations for churches in particular areas, every couple of weeks or so. It seemed like the system I had set up for making and requesting recommendations was too complicated, so I have attempted to streamline it and make it simpler.
Previously, there was a Facebook note for making recommendations and a Facebook note for requesting recommendations. I have eliminated the note for requesting recommendations. From here on out, readers can make recommendations for doctrinally sound churches on the Reader Recommended Churches Facebook Note (or in the comments section of the Reader Recommended Churches article linked above, which has also been updated and streamlined). I will continue to curate these Facebook recommendations regularly and add them to the Reader Recommended Churches article. Those desiring recommendations for particular areas will be directed to that article as well as the other resources at the “Searching for a new church?” tab.
I’d like to invite you to to recommend any doctrinally sound churches you’re aware of at one of the two links above. We are especially in need of recommendations for Maine, Maryland, Rhode Island, Canada, and any states which only have one or two recommendations listed (in the article), but recommendations for any area or country are welcome. Check the article to see if your church is listed.
I hope everybody will find the new system a little easier and that we’ll continue to be able to work together to get Christians into solid churches.
