Metropolitan South Florida is home to millions of citizens originating from almost every nation in the world. A multitude of languages are spoken, and many people retain the habits and culture of their ancestors. They may pray in different ways and at different times, but most respect the traditions of other religious orders. For individuals about to make the move to this unique part of the country, finding a place to worship where they feel comfortable and accepted is very important. Fort Lauderdale churches want to you to take a look at what they have to offer.

For many years the Baptists have been the predominate Christian denomination in the southern section of the country. If this is your preferred church, you will have a huge selection to choose from. One of the largest in the city, is First Baptist. You will find the campus in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale. The congregation is comprised of individuals and families from all walks of life and from many different countries.

Calvary Chapel appeals to many different age groups. You can attend Sunday service in jeans and a tee shirt, and nobody will mind. Everyone is welcome, no matter what they wear. If you have just moved to the city, Calvary offers lots of groups you can get involved in. There are Bible studies and community outreach projects going on all the time.

If you grew up in a Christian household that believed in strict adherence to Biblical teachings, Gateway might be a good fit. They are non-denominational and concentrate on the gospel. This house of worship has established its own school for primary grades. You can get more information on the Christian academy from their website if you have an interest.

If you are of the Catholic faith, Our Lady of the Rosary has several different locations in the area for you to choose from. It was established shortly after the Second Vatican Council. The parish is very traditional in its views and the masses it conducts. In order to serve the needs of such a diverse population, mass texts in Latin, English, Spanish, French, and Italian are available.

The Ancient Spanish Monastery is a tourist attraction as well as an active ministry. It holds regular services in its sanctuary where everyone within the congregation is welcome to participate by conventional kneeling and rising or by sitting quietly and respectfully. The members are comprised of about equal parts Spanish, black and white. Even if you do not attend mass, you should visit to take a look at the impressive architecture.

Jewish culture and heritage has a strong foothold in this part of the state. There many centers and synagogues where believers go to attend regular services and holy days. Conservative, traditional Jews should feel right at home at Temple Beth Israel. Others who have more liberal beliefs may be more attracted to Temple Bat Yam, a reform temple.

Moving to a new city and making new friends can be very stressful. Attending a house of worship and participating in activities available there, can be a great way to get to know like minded people in your community.
