A New Experience

So we did it, we went to church yesterday. We went to one of the ones I had been checking out. A friend of ours went last weekend and really liked it. So we decided it was time and we went.
However, it wasn't without struggle (what is!), as we almost didn't make it because we couldn't get the garage door to close. Finally Leo unhooked it from the crappy opener and just closed it.

We dropped the kids off in their kid rooms (Little Man was not happy about this) and headed off to the auditorium. I have never been to a contemporary service so upon entering it felt almost like a concert. It was totally strange and I was initially really uncomfortable and turned off. But as the service went on I enjoyed it and am glad I went. I would like to go back. The kids did have a good time as well. So overall it was a good experience. I think it will take some getting used to with the band and stuff but I think I'll like it there.

And there was no lightening strikes so I must still be in good graces...

Glad your family had a good experience! I started getting back into church when I was about 19, so I appreciated that churches had contemporary services because that's where I was at that point in my life. I do also appreciate the traditional music with the hymns and stuff, and our family actually goes to the traditional service more often than not because it's at 845am and all the kids are rarin' to go by then. ;)

A service without lightning. Always a good sign.

Glad you went. I like the more contemporary service we have at church. Just remember that the music, though meant to enhance your experience, is not the reason that you are going. Sean does not particularly get into the music at church, but LOVES our pastor because he feels like he talks to him not down at him. If the message is good the rest is just gravy. Glad that you will be going back.
