It’s wild to think that it has been six months now since we changed our worship styles from contemporary and traditional to a united format. While there have been concerns along the way, there has been minimal, and I mean minimal drama. I can’t overstate how God has blessed this decision. Instead of splitting or losing tons of people that others predicted we might, our attendance is actually up significantly than this time last year.
Was it the right move for our church? Without a doubt. Does everyone love the music portion of services week in and week out? Not a chance. But for the most part, people are adapting and giving it a shot. We are truly worshiping together now as a church.
To illustrate where our church is, let me share a conversation I had with a church member the other week.
The church member walked into my office and the first words were, “I don’t like the music on Sundays. I just can’t help it. I do no like it.”
