What are possible meanings for dreams of churches?
Dreaming about a church can connect with your spiritual or religious life, but be careful because dreams can use associations with churches to create symbolism that has nothing to do with spiritual or religious life.
For example, dreaming about being in a big church with an important person in your life can symbolize a huge amount of faith in that person. Seeing a friend leaving a church without you can symbolize loss of belief in the friendship—maybe it isn’t the great, unshakable friendship you once believed it was. Bringing a child to a church can symbolize teaching right from wrong.
The condition of the church can be a modifier of the symbolism. A church in disrepair can symbolize lack of care or attention to areas of life associated with church: faith or faithfulness, morality, spirituality, community-building, socializing, inner peace. A church that’s like a fortress can symbolize a defensive mentality related to beliefs, even if those beliefs have nothing to do with church. Bigfoot is real, dammit, and no one can tell me otherwise!
A man dreams about giants deconstructing an old church on a seashore. They use pieces of it to build a boat, and at the end of the dream the boat is ready to launch. It symbolizes using pieces from his experience with traditional religion to build a new belief system that will carry him onward in his spiritual life.
The symbolism of churches can relate to events that commonly happen in them, such as weddings and funeral services. For example, dreaming about a desecrated church altar can connect with finding out your spouse has been cheating on you. The altar is the place where you both swore fidelity. Hearing wedding bells can symbolize the desire to get married, or the feeling that your significant other is about to pop the question.
But as usual, dreams can add unusual twists, so always begin with your associations. What does the church in your dream bring to mind? How does it fit into the story?

Strange semi-recurring dream
31M, INFJ, heterosexual.
I have had this dream several times over the course of my life. It has been a different setting with different people each time, yet, I know it's the same dream.
It always starts with me being outside with someone who I don't recognize. It starts out with good weather, lots of yellows and greens, natural tones. The weather turns bad and it begins to storm heavily, shifting into greys and blues.
We somehow wind up inside a building with many other people. The first time I remember having this dream, we wound up in the church I was raised in with members of the congregation in there as well. One of them, familiar to me, was wearing the Santa suit he always wore for Christmas, but it wasn't Christmas.
Anyway, It always winds up that I see a tornado through a window. When I see this, nobody seems to know what to do, so I always wind up taking charge and directing people's actions. The most recent occurrence was last night. We were in the basement of a house that I didn't recognize. Nobody was taking action after I saw the tornado, so I started telling them to board up the windows and barricade the exterior basement door. I have no idea where the boards came from, they weren't down there to begin with, they just appeared and they were already the perfect size for the windows.
Everything, including the people in the room with me were in grey and blue tones. I'm not really sure what happened/happens after that, I usually wake up at this point.
If anyone has any ideas about what this could mean, I would love to hear it.

Sneezing blood and staining my shirt (pls help me interpret)
19F, USA. Ex and I don’t talk and I’m in a very happy relationship with my bf I’ve been dating for 1 year & 1/2. But I do think about my ex sometimes, but definitely NOT in that way. I just think about the past a lot in general.
I was friends with Jim Halpert and was hanging with the whole “The Office” cast. It was night and I sat near Jim and we were in some kind of hallway in a church. It was dim with blue lights. It felt like we were going to preform of some kind of musical or dance. I was talking to the whole cast like we were all friends, but across the room was my ex and his now gf with the cast of parks & rec. Me and him kept making eye contact but tbh I just felt curious and jealous he was there with me. I didn’t feel like I cared much about his gf.
I started to pick my nose and then I sneezed and a LOT of blood came out and stained my whole shirt. It looked like I killed someone. I believe it was a white shirt if that mattered, and I told Jim I was going to the rest room to change and had a whole bag already prepared to change. I put on a yellow shirt that was paired with a purple tennis skirt. I went back out and sat with Jim.

Dreaming of getting married
A very long time ago my mom had a dream that she was getting married to my dad. She was walking down the aisle and she couldn’t see his face, she could only see him from the neck down but she knew it was him. The church was dark and there was many candles lit. She couldn’t see the faces of the people sitting but she could see there was a lot of people. She didn’t know why but in her dream she didn’t feel happy. Then one day at work she was telling an older lady, and the lady told her she didn’t want to worry her but she heard that dreaming that you’re getting married like that meant your spouse was going to die. My mom got really angry. Not long after my dad passed away. So I guess what I’m wondering is if anyone has ever heard this before? Is this a thing ?

Weird dream sign from God?
My husband and I (both 28) have been married for 10 months. We have decided to try for a baby and its been 3 months so far. I was on the pill for 14 years and heard women on the pill that long are usually fertile right away. I'm feeling discouraged because everyone in both of our families got pregnant right away and it seems like it's taking so long for us. We got a house, got married, have good jobs, got all the toys we wanted, got our traveling out of the way and now it still hasn't happened. My cousins and sisters are unstable and don't have serious relationships but yet they all have kids. I pray to God a lot but don't go to church so I'm not super religious but I do believe in a higher power. I pray and ask for God to do whatever is meant to be. If a baby is supposed to be for us please let it happen soon. But if it's not supposed to happen then I don't want to go through a miscarriage or something. Last night I only slept 3 hours and woke up off and on and Everytime I fell back asleep I continued the same shitty dream. I dreamt my husband cheated on me with his ex and left me for her. In my dream I was saying how it was a sign from God thats why we never had a baby that he knew this would happen and didn't want a baby to be in that mess. I'm trying to not cry about it right now but I am. Is this a sign from God it's not meant to be? But I'm trying to be positive. Should I be happy that it's not true and that's not the situation? I suffer from anxiety and depression and I've been doing so good until lately. Now today its very bad.
A little back story.. when we first got together about 6 years ago he did cheat on me and I punched his face and left his ass immediately. He begged and did everything I wanted to get me back. I dated people and kissed guys all in front of him. He paid for expensive stuff for me cuz honestly I was just trying to use him.(yes I know very toxic) About 6 months of me using him and him sticking around I gave him another shot and here we are.many years later. Happy as can be with 2 fur babies, some chickens, a boat, a big house, nice cars and I'm so spoiled everyday. I love him so much and I know he loves me but that dream really fucked me up. Idk what I'm looking for. I wish I could just talk to God but I guess reddit is all I have right now. P.s. none of our families or friends know we're trying for a kid so I don't wanna vent to them at all. We both come from big families (I'm the oldest of 7 he's the youngest of 6) so it hurts Everytime someone asks when is the baby. And no we're not Mormon or rich at all... just come from ghetto backgrounds. One of the few that broke the cycle, or is at least trying to. I wrote this hours ago and struggled to post it so Thanks to anyone that reads this and has some, hopefully, positive vibes for me.

Dream about the Egyptian gods
I will try to keep mine short. There was a lot of things leading up to when I got to Egypt in my dream but I don't think they are important. Now to note that I have never been to Egypt nor do I know about their Ancient gods except for Ra and Anubis which everyone knows. I also am not religious. I believe there is a God but I'm not religious and think the church is a lie. I also have not read or seen anything Egyptian recently.
Now in my dream, I had taken a trip to Egypt with a group of people. Not sure who they were but we were like researchers or contractors for someone. I would sya contractors as some of us had guns. We were in the city all day and our hotel had a rooftop restaurant in which you could kind of see the pyramids in the background. Pretty much my dream didn't kick off until it was becoming night. Once nighttime hit, the city took a strange atmosphere.
People were still drinking and doing normal things but something felt off. It was a clear night with a full moon. I remember always looking back to the bartender and always caught him looking my way. I at one point decided to go to the bathroom and the bathroom was dirty. In there was a strange man starting into the mirror with the faucet on but not doing anything. I decided to ignore it and used the bathroom.
I walked out and as I was headed to my normal spot where I had been relaxing all day, a woman grabbed my arm and told me to go down on the floor and pretend I'm dead and to not move. I did as she told me and immediately after, a bright white light burst in the air making the sky alone like it was day time. The light came from the direction of the pyramids. Right then I saw what I assume the who assembly of the Egyptian gods descend from the sky and some came from the ground.
The woman tighten her trip on my arm and I understood that I shouldn't react or move. There was chaos and some people were killed by the gods. At this time, some of those gods landed on the roof top at where I was at. I don't remember much on how they looked except for one of them.
He or it was tall about 7-8ft and extremely buff with like a ram or bison head and the body of a man. I don't know what was going on but in my head something kept telling me the Egyptian gods were going to war with someone and that's why they decided to show up now. The ram god guy walked by me making the whole ground shake and some of the other gods around parted to make way for it.
That's the end of my dream. I researched this morning and the god I think I saw is Khnum and he looked similar to this.
