This time of year often leaves people searching for the true meaning of the season or simply just searching for answers. If you are in need of some spiritual guidance or a place to worship, you can start right here.

Last year we did a call out to our readers asking if they loved their church and wanted to tell others about it.  We asked them to send us their church information along with a few sentences about why they liked it.

I have posted our list below, but this blog is also archived under the “Family Life – Religion” category, as well as on our Directories page If you have a favorite church and it is not listed, no fear!  Simply email and we can add your listing to this directory at any time.  Click on the name of any church to go directly to its website!

Guilford College United Methodist Church
1205 Fleming Rd.
Greensboro 27410

Shannon M. says: The children’s and youth ministries are wonderful, but so is the adult ministry. The congregation is kind and loving and as a single-mom I love the fact that my daughter says of many of the women “she is like a second mom to me”. The men are equally as kind and encouraging to me and my daughter. The membership is large enough you can blend in to the congregation if that is your wish, but once you attend I doubt you will. On the other hand, the members are very engaged and seeing the same faces week after week at worship service and other events give it a small church intimacy.

Samantha K. says: The church is very family oriented, but also has programs for single adults. All the leadership is lay and everyone has an assignment to help the church run smoothly, including members of the congregation giving the ‘sermons’. I can travel almost anywhere in the world and attend the same church service and very frequently, even have the same lessons that are taught where I would normally attend church.

She quickly became involved in the Kids ROCC program and loved it. She continued through Tween Roc program and then excitedly went into ROC Youth. Where she enjoyed many missions activities locally, in the US and out of the country.  She continues to stay in touch with the all of the youth leaders and considers them both friends and mentors.  They also have a MOMS group that meets every week. Mothers of Many Seasons is a great mom support group. The MOMS program is designed to meet the growing needs of women by helping them grow in their faith and create Christ-centered homes.  We truly feel that we are part of a family at ROCC.



Greenwood Hills Wesleyan Church
2937 N. Main St.
High Point, NC

Selina Wheeler says: I am the Children’s Pastor at Greenwood Hills Wesleyan Church on North Main Street in High Point. We are a wonderful church with much to offer any family. We are now going through a process of redefining our missions statement and much of what we intend to do in the future is to reach out to and aid families. We are excited about this new vision God has given us, and can’t wait to see how He unfolds it all. We have a wonderful children’s program (of course I would think so), a great youth group, and many things for young adults as well as senior adults. We offer a more contemporary service at 9am on Sunday mornings and a more traditional service at 11am. We have children’s ministry during both services. Greenwood Hills Wesleyan Church is a GREAT place to worship and be part of a loving family!
