Church attendance in the 2nd century.

'Let no one be misled: if anyone is not within the sanctuary, he lacks the bread of God....Therefore whoever does not meet with the congregation thereby demonstrates his arrogance and has separated himself, for it is written: "God opposes the arrogant."' -Igantius of Antioch (To the Ephesians, v.5)

Evidently their bishop euchrestos was achrestos in keeping the young ones interested.
