Remember there was a time before the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed when everyone was expected to go to the temple to worship. Later however when Jesus was here and someone questioned Him about it, He told her . . . But the time is coming--indeed it's here now--when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. One doesn't need to be in a church in order to worship God. Churches these days IMHO are merely a place where you meet friends.
