Statistics Prove Church is GOOD for YOU!
Do you want to help your kids?
Check the statistics and take them to church!
Research done by Duke, Indiana, Michigan Universities, as well as The Center for Disease Control, Barna Research Group and Gallup present overwhelming statistics on the benefits of church attendance.
Now is a GREAT time to resolve to attend church regularly. Faith invites you to come this Sunday at 10:15 a.m. We are located on the corner of Alton & High Streets in Freeburg. www.faithbaptistfreeburg.org
Find a great Bible-based church and attend regularly. That is the KEY. Don't be a holiday "drop-in."
Sporadic attendance does not build a foundation!
-Be a regular church attender. Just look at the statistically-proven benefits:
Benefits of regular church attendance for parents and children:
___Increases average life expectancy by 8 years
___Significantly reduces your child’s use and risk from alcohol, tobacco and drugs
___Helps rebounding from depression - 70% faster
___Reduces risk of children committing a crime
___Improves children’s attitude at school and increases school participation
___Provides a life-long moral compass
___Provides children with a caring extended family
In study after study, children who actively engage in a faith community on a regular basis have significantly reduced likelihood of life problems and risky behaviors. They are more likely to have a happier healthier and longer life. The studies showed the same results for adults.
What are you waiting for?
You are welcome at church this Sunday!
