I recently received an advertising pamphlet about a local church in town where I live. It prompted me to visit their website. After discovering what this church is about, I didn’t know whether someone was playing a cruel joke or if this is for real. The following is their own words in describing their worship service:
The Celebration worship times are 9:00am and 10:15am. We’re not big on doing church the traditional way, so dress casual and come worship God in a relaxed, contemporary, and informal setting! Gather your family around a table, have coffee or juice, and a treat while one of the bands, Down to Earth and Altar Ego play uplifting and contemporary music. The sermons are short, practical, and positive. The entire worship service is approximately forty five minutes.
I’m afraid this is no joke. These people sincerely believe that they are doing a church.
