Sharing is caring!

Are you looking at churches in Jacksonville, FL? Are you wondering which ones will provide the prayers and programs your family needs to thrive in the light of the Lord? Here are just a few tips for narrowing down your options when you’re considering different houses of worship.

1. Examine Their Schedules

Do they have classes, schools and workshops? Do they offer daycare services for the little ones? Do they host parties and potlucks for new members? Look for an active, friendly place that can get your family out of the house and back into the swing of regular church attendance.

2. Stay Local

While there’s nothing wrong with going out of your way for a great service or community event, you’ll want your “everyday” church to be close. Not only will it enable you to make like-minded friends in your own neighborhood, but it will also ensure that you don’t use a long commute as an excuse to miss church.

3. Take a Tour

Last, but certainly not least, take a tour of the church you’re considering. See if you like the people and if the atmosphere gives you a good feeling. Could you see yourself worshiping there every week? Trust your instincts!

These are just a few things to keep in mind if you’re looking for a new church. For more help in finding your way to God, feel free to contact us at Southpoint Community Church through We’re one of the friendliest nondenominational churches in Jacksonville, FL, and we’d be happy to have you!
