    Went to a wholly contemporary service last Sunday. It was in a church right off a major college campus. I can see the appeal of the contemporary services.

    More than that, to give it its desired air of spirituality, they served wine and juice from two cups. In the very ordinance which communicates unity, they drive a wedge between those with a conscience toward wine, and those who have none.

    But that's okay. The drummer has found his niche.

    If it irks you, then you probably should not go back.

    That's the whole point, don't you think?

    Perhaps I do not understand your reason for your OP. What exactly is your point?

    From the title, I thought this was going to be about literal children serving communion.

    The "Hubba Hubba" bit still has me confused.

    And is the drummer a reference to the little drummer boy song? Is this a tie in?

    I was a boy when WWII ended and there was a popular slogan (maybe a song - not 100% sure about the song part).

    The phrase "hubba hubba" was part of that song/slogan which has been modernly attributed to Vince Maloy - Hubba Hubba Ding Ding. Used in reference to an attractive woman.

    I thought maybe it was about women passing the communion plates.

    I don't see an issue with using wine/juice. I believe wine to be the proper substance but with so many struggling with the sin of alcoholism, juice is a merciful substitute.

    Maybe I should have said, That's the real point [of their wine and juice.] Not unity, but division.

    No plates. They had four 'stations,' where an absolute knock-out was holding the loaf, and a preppy guy was holding a chalice of wine, and a common wine glass of juice. As the band played the college students lined up and each would tear a piece from the loaf and dip it in either the wine or the juice.

    Then use wine, or use juice, but don't highlight the division.

    So is it the practice or the people serving that annoys?

    My own opinion and no insult intended. What you have described is not offensive, except to someone who wants to be offended.

    We use matzo for communion but also provide gluten free-matzo.

    The unity is in the participation.

    Who's offended? The standard of worship is not offense, but spirit. Who's offended at priestly robes and other Catholic trappings? But my question is, based on biblical principles, What's the point?

    Think of the designs of airplanes. It doesn't matter who the manufacturer is. They all look the same, because if they're going to fly, they have to be a certain shape. An engineer can look at a design and say this will or will not fly without being offended. He may even find certain elements to be ridiculous and mock them. It doesn't mean he was offended by them. And if a certain designer gets his feathers ruffled because one who is discerning laughed at the ridiculous features, that's the designer's problem.

    :cool:

    I'm still a bit mystified by the OP. Are highly attractive people not to attend church?

    I can appreciate the challenge of not expecting alcohol being served without notice. One time, when visiting a friends church, I found out at the table they used wine and had to walk away without partaking. It was weird.

    But I would expect since there was a choice of wine and juice that the notification is there and even at the last second, you could choose juice over the wine. So I don't see that as being a challenge.
