Many people become uninterested over time because they do not feel connected to a Church body. some Church’s don’t offer ways to connect. But, there are a lot of activities on campuses and in the community. you can even look into other ministers. The more connected you are to the body of Christ, the more you will maintain your faith. when i was saved it was hard to be interested in Church and there was nothing wrong with the Church. i just couldn’t feel connected. But, when i started thinking about my faith. i just wanted to get closer and involved. my prayers was answered.
