If you said yes, what do you do with it when you are in church?
If you said no, why not? why don't you carry your cell phone/ipad/tablet to church?
Just wondering, and please answer HONESTLY!

No, you come to church to worship. Not to play Cut The Rope or Angry Birds or to text.

I take my phone, turn it off, and put it in my purse or pocket. I take it with me in case I need to text or call my parents. We have a rather large church, so sometimes they vanish. :P
... Even if it gets me convicted
I’ll still be on my knees with my hands lifted ...
... If saying I believe is out of line
If I’m judged cause I’m gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be Guilty ...

I bring my phone but turn it on vibrate and keep it in my purse in the AV booth (my dad's in charge of AV so it's safe.)
Sometimes we worry,
Sometimes we fret.
Sometimes we feel like
We can't move a step.

But God is still with us.
Keep Him in mind.
Trust in Him alway.
He is ever so kind.

I carry my phone into church because...why wouldn't I?

I sometimes during the sermon my mom heard something that rhe preacher guy says and she tests us to ask about it. We only started doing that recently.


And some of you guys may say "that's disrespectful. You should wait until after church to talk about that stuff." if anyone is asking that then talk to my mom. She started it :whistle: :lol:

I don't because I don't see a need to. Sometimes I bring it but leave it in the car, just in case. I like to make sure I pay attention in church and there really isn't a point in bringing my phone in...some people use theirs for the Bible but I use an actual Bible. :)

church is not the place for that, we are there to spend time with our creator, not play on electronic devices

well, i carry my phone to church, but i put it on silent...My mom doesn't let me take it out to do anything during the church service because people may think i am texting. Sometimes i want to make notes in my phone about the sermon, but she tells me not to [for the same reason i just gave]. So i take a piece of paper, a pen/pencil and my actual bible to church, instead of using my phone.

It is wrong when people keep getting on their phone texting friends during the service and stuff like that. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. But just bringing it I do not believe is wrong.
Happy birthday TP!!

It is ok to bring an iPad to church. A lot of people have their Bible on it. They find it much quicker to look up the texts.

I take my cell phone to church so that my parents can contact me or so i can contact them. They don't attend church with me.

I bring my phone to church, put it on vibrate, use it for the Bible app in Sabbath School but put it in my purse for the 11:00 service until the sermon and it's time to use the Bible app again. I don't play games or use social media, I try to avoid that on Sabbath overall unless it's a Bible game or Guide :D I won't say I haven't sent a text in church once or twice... XD IM NOT PERFECT
and I bring my phone in case there's an emergency or something to that effect. :) even though our worship center has a horrible signal. We have wifi, though, even though they turn it off during divine worship sometimes XD, because most of the other teens at my church use social media in church all the time, so. They turned it off one time and all of the "popular" older teens looked up from their phones where they were sitting and looked toward the AV booth at like the exact same time when they realized the wifi turned off :lol: but they probably just used cellular after that.. -_- XD

I carry mine around with me, and occasionally I'll use it for an art reference or a text. (I'm not that popular so I don't receive texts like every two seconds)
but most of the time in church I'm drawing it really helps me pay attention, so I don't really need my phone

I always take my phone to church. That makes me accessible to others who wish to contact me. Using it in the sanctuary for purposes other than spiritual purposes is inappropriate.

I apologize in advance if my nitpicking comes off the wrong way. With that out of the way, here is the comment:

You mean a print Bible :P
