(Before reading this post and jumping in on the conversation, please check out the explanation of the Discussion Series I posted on Read Here First! on July 10, 2007...it will help you understand a little more. Thanks!)
This topic was inspired by a question and discussion posted on worshiptogether.com as well as a Paul Baloche "Modern Worship" DVD I recently watched for the first time.
What is the purpose of your Sunday Morning Worship Service/Gathering?
Have you thought this through as a church leader?
Have you thought this through with the rest of your church leaders (pastors, team leaders, etc.)?
Why have you chosen your specific purpose (meaning, based on what?)?
How do you effectively communicate this with your church members? Regular attenders? First-time guests?
I don't have time to post my answers right now, but I'll get to them later tonight if I can.
