8 Annoying Things That People Do In Church

You might have thought about this….Each time you go to church, there are certain things that make you go like “No..no…no…not in church. Did he/she just do that?!”

What you need to know is that there are different kinds of personalities, so expect people to do some weird ish.

Here are some of the most annoying and rude behaviors everyone can agree are not meant for church

 

1. Littering in church

I am sure you have seen someone littering in church.  Do they do the same things in their homes? It is just good etiquette not to litter in church, well… because you are in the house of God, dummy!

 

2. Children crying

Mothers, we can all agree that you cannot control when babies decide it’s time for “Mummy, switi…” OR “Mummy, nyonyo…” but at least try to keep them quiet or occupied. If worse comes to worst, take them out for a short while. You want to avoid those funny judgmental looks, and well…also avoid disrupting the service. Some churches are considerate enough to have a mother’s section, ask them if there is one.

3. Receiving calls in church

When the church requests that you should put your phone on silent, it’s just the RIGHT thing to do. Some people receive calls in church, bending over below the benches.

As if people won’t hear you say “Nimeacha chai kwa kibuyu. Angalia karibu na vitunguu na nyanya.”

Ensure that your phone is in silent mode and also, STOP BROWSING in church just because there is free Wi-Fi. Some people go to Facebook, Instagram, and even chat with their friends while in church. Be respectful in the house of the Lord!

4. Arriving late to church

Some people arrive at work early or the airport; but in church; that’s another case.

They always arrive late. Prepare yourself early for church; give God the two hours that the bulletin says. Otherwise, there is no need to go if it’s just another thing you are going to.

 

5. Indecent dressing

The church is a place for worship. Do you want to distract other people – especially men back to “bed”? Some people will literally wear anything like it’s just any other day. Why don’t you give the teeny-tiny dresses and revealing clothes a break? It’s just one day! Try to keep it decent when going to church.

6. Chewing gum

Some people say that chewing gum keeps them awake. Honestly, smacking and chewing gum disturbs others. It shows a lack of restraint. Ensure that you don’t have gum in your mouth when you enter into the church.

7. Public display of affection

I once saw a man and his wife holding and rubbing each other’s – get this, butt! – during the service, and I must say, it was very..very uncomfortable for me.

Display of affection in church portrays a lack of respect for those in church; unless you are the one hearing the words, “You may now kiss the bride.”

8. Wearing overly big hats in church

If you wear big hats to church, ensure that they do not block the people behind you. Better still, try to sit somewhere you will not obstruct the people behind you. Remove your hat if you notice that there are people behind you popping their heads as they struggle to see the presentations and the preacher.
