Church Service What Is It:
Church service: The Greek word translated church is ekklesia (ek-klay-see’-ah), it means the call out, simply put, the call out people. In the Hebrew rendering is something like the set apart people, or people separated apart for God. It implies that the church service is made up of people who have been set apart for God. In other words, they are the consecrated people of God. The people that have identified with God and bear the ownership mark of God. These consecrated people gather in a place in one accord. And they do this for the main purpose of rendering the act of worship to their God. The Church is the people that gather and not the building, though erroneously many refers the building as the Church.

The act of worship in a church involves so many ordinances, rituals and practices from the worshippers. These roles are distributed among them and so it is a collective effort of the people that makes up a complete church service worship to God. In the church service some roles have been typified for certain people based on their abilities. It means there is a kind of trust on them to carry out their duties in that aspect well. However, it is not everyone that comes to service finds himself participating in the roles.
Categories Of People In A Church Service:
So we have among the church service attendees what is called the pew. The people who are in the pew do not have active roles to play. But their presence in the building is highly needed for a complete church service to commence. The people who carry out roles in the church service are called the clergies or ministers. They are made up of preachers (pastors), teachers, evangelist, apostles, welfare (administrators) and music minister (singers). This category of people is very few in number. However, they have the key positions and dictates how the church should be ran.

It is always the case in every church service that the pew out numbers the clergies. And among the pew the church draws out feeders that replace the clergies. This implies that every clergy at one time was among the pew, nobody was born with a clergy title. The performance of the clergies matters much. This is because, how well they perform will definitely determine how the Pew will stay and be retained. In fact, evidence has shown that based on the statement above, many among the pew comes to worship. This is because they have discovered that, the preacher does his work very well. Or that the teacher does his work well, or that the singers have such angelic voice in rendering their songs.

The Reasons Why People Go To Church:
Therefore, it is not surprising to hear people say why they attend so, and so church is because to them the preacher has the Word. That as far as they are concerned they are learning much from him. And some will say, though their preacher doesn’t have much word but the choir is their center of attraction. And some will confirm that the welfare ministry of the church is the best. Though the singers and the preachers do not have the word they are sticking around. To some of us, these reasons above though real, shouldn’t be the reason for one to go to Church service every Sunday. The question therefore is, if these points should not be the reason to go to church every Sunday what then should be your reason of going to Church every Sunday?
