5 Ways to Maintain Church Attendance as a Law Enforcement Family
Make it a priority.
I am not the type of person who needs to be at church whenever the doors are open. I know my limits and I don’t force myself to attend evening services, AWANA, and every ministry opportunity available (although those are all great things!).
However, when we are healthy and not traveling, attending our regular weekly service is a non-negotiable for me and the children.
Get ready the night before.
The night before church, I usually bathe the children, lay out their Sunday clothes, prepare breakfast, and pack the diaper bag. In the morning it makes it so much easier to just grab everything and go.
Set fairly low expectations.
Ask someone to help.
