I'm SO sorry for the discomfort you felt at the churches you've tried.
We actually have a little slogan we include on our bulletin and ads "Dress comfortably, we do!" . . . just to encourage participation by anyone who would rather not (or can't) get dressed up. This even encourages the teens and twenty-somethings to attend.
If you have a desire to be part of a church body, please keep trying different churches. I think you will know quickly when you have found your very own church home and it will be well worth the effort of finding it. We support each other thru life's hard times and good times.
Regardless, make sure and check out the ArkAlmighty site as you do not need to be a member of a church to use their help page. Lots of churches are actually trying to find people just like you. When I started going to church 30 years ago, I had absolutely nothing to offer them. They actually picked me and my kids up on Sundays because I didn't even have a car. They never asked me for a dime and they watched over me like they were family. I had surprise groceries show up and one of the ladies (at first I thought she was just a busy-body) came EVERY week and took me grocery shopping because she knew I had no car. That lady has been a life-long friend of mine, even though she moved out of state just a couple years after I met her. Most of all, I developed a relationship with God. Now life has improved for me so I try to help others when I can . . . its kind of a pay-it forward thing.
I hope you get some help with that fridge girl!!! I'm worried about
