    Do the members of your church use the front door to enter the building?

    Front doors, side doors, fellowship hall door (comes from the education building for those coming from Sunday School.
    About the only doors we don't use are the emergency exits!!

    Most use front, which is in back of sanctuary, but I read about some guys that tore the roof off and entered that way once. The preacher didn't even get mad at 'em. I think our church wouldn't like that much.

    I deleted what I just wrote, asking if the "front door" is the door(s) cloest and/or facing the street of address because that is how all churches are in my experience. But I realized that was not true because a previous church I attended had no such door on the street of address, but had them on the other 3 sides (the building is close to both of the corner streets). Also, that street of address is behind the pulpit and choir left area, which is also the exception (or seems to be). My current church is turned around from that, and it's 3 sets of double-doors do face the street of address with the pulpit and choir loft at the opposite end.

    So-- is "front door" opposite the pulpit and choir loft, does it face the street of address, or is it the biggest or snazziest door? Or is "front" nothing but a matter of perspective?

    We do, too. It's right behind the pulpit where the pastor stands. It has a timer on it, and is set to spring at 12 noon on Sunday.

    It doesn't make a difference. The point of this thread and several others is to point out a frequent poster here who starts numerous (an understatement) threads.

    Few use the front door. Most use the side door. It is closest to most of the parking and the educational building.

    Folks use the front doors, side door, and back door.

    I prefer the back door. It's closest to the stairway that leads to the balcony, my preferred place for sitting.
