Doesn’t it just infuriate you when some people in church act like they have the deed to certain seats?

Church Seats

People of God we need to stop this very annoying habit. News flash! unless there is a sign that says “Reserved” on the seat then usually the seat is fair game. If you are so concerned about sitting in a particular spot then maybe the thing to do is to come early and claim your spot.

For God’s sake though if you arrive in church and God forbid that someone else is sitting in “your” seat then please be Christian enough to sit somewhere else. It is very off putting and annoying to have someone come in way after church start and want you to move to somewhere else.

Now as I said before, if it is a special service and they forgot to put the reserve signs or did not get to put the sign before church started then that is different. As long as your name is not on the seat, then it is fair game and the early bird catches the worm. It is first come, first serve so if someone is already seated, especially if they are already worshiping then PLEASE, PLEASE sit elsewhere. If you have to sit at that seat, then have them place a reserve sign on the seat each Sunday just for you. Good luck with that though for I don’t know any pastor who is going to agree to that.

    Oh! My! This had me laughing. I can picture the dozens of “reserved” seats at my parents church. Luckily, though, we’ve never had anyone ask visitors to move!

    I think people get accustomed to sitting in a certain spot. We’re all creatures of habit after all. That said, at our church it’s more of a general location people gravitate towards. When the church starts to fill up we adjust and a lot of members even give up their seats for visitors. I guess it’s all about the culture of the church and social norms. So many times church is viewed as a social club on the one extreme or a moral living local on the other. The truth is the church is supposed to be and act more like a hospital. Everyone has hurts, habits, and hangups. We all need Jesus.

  3. Haha. Fortunately this isn’t the case in our church.

    Haha this is hilarious and unfortunately so true! It’s so sad! Thanks for bringing this point up…it’s important for people to realize how ridiculous it is 🙂

  5. The cartoon made me smile and sad as well because I know it happens! We are there for one purpose to glorify God with our worship, and there are plenty of seats! 🙂
