Do Church Pews Change Church?

munger-miChurch pews are an important part of church rituals. They give people a sense of security, routine, and tradition that helps them achieve a better connection with the Scripture and Message in Sunday services. If your church is looking to make an impact in the lives of your members and community, church pews can help you do that.

For many of us, daily life is complicated, frustrating, and stressful. We work hard and when we finish work we have household chores to do and family to care for. Others spend their time in a round of activities and self-indulgence that fills up the day but leaves them feeling empty. We worry about the state of the world and the state of our economy, or perhaps about our own future.

Walking into church on Sunday morning or Wednesday night, seeing the familiar rows of pews, and slipping into a seat by a neighbor, a family member, or a stranger who is yet a brother or sister in Christ — it makes the cares of the world fall away and helps us prepare our hearts and minds for worship.

Some people think that how we worship and the physical act of worshiping helps us seek God. Some churches believe that traditions of kneeling during prayer separates the prayers said in church as a group from the prayers said alone and other churches believe that praying together instead of being lead by clergy is the best way to worship. When you think about your church’s furniture needs, give some thought to how your church thinks about worship services. Do you need the traditional aspects found in church pews to feel most comfortable and connected with God while worshiping? Does your congregation look forward to the peace of mind they experience during an ordered worship service?
