Last One to Leave

I am typically the last one to leave at church.   Sure, I'm a beautiful social butterfly... as some have described me, but I love people and I like chit-chatting after church.  I have never understood people that dart out the front door as soon as the pastor says Amen.  What is the point?  You could pretty much sit at home and watch a TV preacher for that.  The point here is that church is about community
I'll never forget Rick Warren stating at a conference I attended that "you can tell how healthy your church is by the number of folks who stick around when the weekend service is over." Simply put: people sticking around and hanging out shows a depth in relationships. And a depth in relationships and people getting connected leads to a healthy church community.
