Distance from our house: 15 minutes
Membership: Around 350 but it is broken up into 4 services
Friendliness of members: Everyone was really friendly and it helped that we already had friends there.
Ease of finding classrooms: Our friends showed us where everything was and got us all checked in.
Sermon: The sermon was done on video which brought out the cynical side in Bobby at the beginning. But, both of us liked the fact that the pastor used his Bible. He talked about Gods character, he used verses from the old and the new testament, and even though we were watching the screen it was ok. At out other church we were too and our pastor was live. We also liked that communion was set up in the back of the sanctuary so you could take it if you wanted to but didn't feel pressured to.
Music: Was rockin! I thought Bobby might stay and play for the second service as he was up in the front talking to the musicians for so long afterward. I think most of the songs were Hillsong and the singer sounded like Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay.
Kids program: Munchkin said as we got in the car "I loved the kids program at this church!" She held up her paper and told us that they learned about Mary and Elizabeth and that they were both going to have babies.
Little Man was sad when we dropped him off but I think he had a really good time too.
Followup: I don't know what the follow up will be like but several of our friends go there so I am sure we will hear something.
We really like this church and I think it is almost a tie between Church 5 and Church 6 (like it is a competition...). Both were super friendly, both had music we could relate to, both had solid biblical teaching, both had great kids programs, both have Life Groups instead of Sunday School, both are very focused on community involvement. I think it might come down to distance....
