  • Music in the service

    Only four choices here. Take one of 'em. Remember this is your "preference." I don't care whether you prefer 10% or 75% hymns. A mixture is a mixture.

    I love the old hymns but I love many of the contemporary praise & worship songs, too.
    Come unto me all that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

      I like some of the ole hymns too... but I think that IOT reach the next generation we need to switch to contemporary songs alone. Hence my preference.

          I tried getting into the contemporary worship music, but just couldn't find myself getting into it. I prefer the traditional hymns in worship (Amazing Grace, The Old Rugged Cross, The Comforter Has Come, Trust and Obey, Victory in Jesus, etc.)

            Mixture of hymns and contemporary songs

            Love the Old "Heavenly Highway" hymnal songs. But I really like the contemporary praise songs as well!

            Galatians 2: 20
            I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

              Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.

                I prefer mostly contemporary, but a few hymns are okay like Amazing Grace and Be Thou My Vision.

                  For me it's contemporary music although any hymn with 2 electric guitars, a bass guitar and a motivated drummer... added for flavor, will always be enjoyed

                  Right now I'm learning, "Your Grace is Enough"... the song rocks!

                    Well, it appears, so far, that 2/3 of people prefer some sort of mixture.

                      I'm currently going to an awesome church where we alternate worship styles every week. One week we do contemporary music in a casual setting, the next week we do more formal, older hymns in a sanctuary. I love the variety.

                        We should keep what is good in the old, and find what is good in the new. The most important thing in worship is the right mix and progression of the music, to lead people into an attitude of worship, and prepare hearts and minds to hear what the Lord will speak to them through the sermon.

                        Slightly off-topic, my biggest beef is the breaking up of the service into pieces, so that there is not a smooth flow from beginning to end. I end up with mental whiplash so that by the time the sermon begins, I have to work at being quiet and comfortable to hear what is being said.
                        Blessings,

                          Neat idea! Many churches have more than one service with a variety of music.

                          Roadwarrior,

                          My biggest beef is that in a desire to please people, and to attract people, the messages are reduced to 20 minute devotionals.

                            I prefer a "rock-n-roll" style - but don't many of the contemporary songs I've heard.

                            So I'd rather sing hymns in church.
                            You were made to think. It will do you good to think; to develop your powers by study. God designed that religion should require thought, intense thought, and should thoroughly develop our powers of thought.

                              My wife and I sing in the choir, but I voted for a mix because there are some great praise and worship songs out there.
