One of the negatives about life in
is being able to find a Bible based church where we can fellowship with other believers. We have been making another attempt to find a local church we can be a part of and this is becoming a difficult task. Italy
The predominant non-Catholic churches in this area are part of the Assembly of God organization and the few we have attended have been interesting experiences. The ladies in all of these have been wearing head coverings, mostly just scarves but we went to one last fall where the men and women sat on opposite sides of the central aisle. We attended a service at one church not affiliated with AofG, I Fratelli, but in talking to the leadership after the service we discovered their leadership plan does not involve a head pastor to lead the flock. That was a little disconcerting to us for Biblical reasons.
I found another church near
listed on the internet but when we went to their listed address on Sunday morning there was nobody there and not even a sign or name plate for the church. It seems they moved or closed and did not want anyone to know. Lesson learned – call to confirm location and times. Pescara
We will continue our search in a wider geographic area or perhaps a charismatic Catholic service as we do need to make contact with other believers in our area with whom we can fellowship with at least on a periodic basis. It is important for us to be able to supplement our Bibles and the teachings we can access on the internet with involvement in a local body.
