    "in" vs "at"

    I always have trouble with the two prepositions, "in" and "at".

    (ex) meeting your friends at or in a church

    If you meet your friends at a church, does it mean that you meet them outside the church?

    If you meet your friends in a church, does it mean that you meet them inside the church?

    Some of my native English-speaking friends say that the two prepositions can sometimes mean the same thing.

    Please explain the usage of the two prepositions. Thank you very much.
