It is my opinion that it’s worth the effort to take notes in church when listening to the pastor preach and teach. I am a note taker and I find that it is blesses me in more ways than one.
First, I have it on paper what was taught. Which means I can go back to it at any time for review and encouragement. I do revisit my notes from time to time.
Second, I pay better attention if I’m taking notes on the sermon being given. Not only am I saving what I’m hearing but I am less distracted when writing. I’m more focused on what’s being taught.
Thirdly, taking notes in church really nails it to the walls of my heart. There is something about writing it down that helps me grasp what is being taught and remember it later.
When taking notes, it doesn’t have to be fancy or long sentences. It’s just important to get the gist of what is being taught down. Write down key words with brief definitions, short but to the point sentences and verse references. I don’t usually have time to write down whole verses so scripture references are easier. Plus, they make you look them up in your Bible later.
In addition, drawings are good, too. I’m not a great artist but I can draw stick people or the cross, for example. It’s not for others to see anyways so add drawings where you can if you choose.
So, do you take notes in church? How does it benefit you?
