If early Christians did not go to church, where did they go?

Some would say, early Christians did not go to church. OK. I’ll think
on that. So if they didn’t go to church, where did they go? Today, it
seems the word church has become to mean the building / event we go to
on Sunday.

Biblically, it is true to say we are the church. Therefore we can not
go to church from a Biblical sense. The question begs an answer. If
we don’t go to church, where do we go?

Look at the question from the other direction. Given we go to church
on Sunday, who are we if we are not the church? I think both are true
as a result of the limitations of the English language. We are in
fact the church and we go to church.

I propose we distinguish between the two with the use of a capital “C”
in Church to designate we are the Church. If we are referring to the
facility, we can use a lower case “c” to go to church on Sunday. This
is much like god being our credit card and God being the Holy One we

But there is a problem. In a word, it is Frank Viola. He might say,
“There is no such thing as our traditional church in the Bible”. So
as ridiculous as it sounds, we are back to the original question. If
the early “C”hurch did not go to “c”hurch, where did they go when they
gathered and shared?

Possibly, they went to Fresh Connections?

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
