How far do you drive to church or your place of worship

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
DH and I are looking for a closer church to worship at.

Right now we drive 25 miles one way!

How far do you drive to church or where you worship at?

We drive 20 miles one way. We return to my home parish where I grew up and where we attended for many years. When we moved, we just didn't click with our local parish, so we got permission to return to our old one.

A lot of people say "oh my gosh, that's so far!"...but it's really not that big of a deal to us, it doesn't take THAT long to get there. We have many friends/family in that city, so we're there for family events, parties etc all the time. It's just 'normal' for us.

I'm not sure how many miles - it's a 15 minute drive each way.

I am not sure of how many miles it is to church, but it takes about 20 minutes to drive there each way.

When we lived in Ca. it was about a 35 min drive. Now that we live in Utah it is about 3 min.

We drove a 30 minute drive to my childhood church for years! We drove it on Sundays and I also went down every other Friday for bible study. It was worth it to be there with everyone we know. I loved that church.

Due to some problems at that church though, we left. We now drive 5 minutes to the church near us. I like the church and like the drive, just wish I had the relationships here like I had there. (but we'll stick with it and i'm sure it'll happen)

It is 1/2 mile away on the walking trail, but we have to drive all the way around, so about 2 miles by car.

Mercy! I would hate to live that far - it would severely limit my ability to serve.
When Himself had a jpb interview last year in Nebraska, I did a search for Unitarian churches in the area where the school was. The closest one was 90 miles away.
Had he gotten the job and had we moved there, I would have had to limit my church attendance to once a month. As it is, I participate in acitivities and serve on committees that somtimes have me at the church several times in the same week.
