A great crowd in at church today. Despite the fact I am sick sick sick, it was great to be at church.
An interesting comment from a visitor, who normally attends another church.
His comment, you have a real mix of all types of people, and we do.
About 50 kids under 12, a stack of parents, a few (very few) 40-50’s and a good amount of the ‘silver hairs’.
It is truly a generational church.
We try hard to do the blended type service well.
Most church growth manuals tell you that this does not work.
But with our songs, our worship leaders pick a good mix, but they are down in a contemporary style….but this seems to resonate with 99% of people.
This morning I caught a senior lady singing along pre service to one of the newest songs we do. That made me feel great…..
I read a lot, and read widely, and I think there is truth is a lot of material. But somehow our church does not have to follow the rules.
