    I often visit newcomers in town and find them to be church shopping. They want to know what they can get out of church. Churches are one more consumer commodity. Worship services are not a place for us to serve God and neighbor but a place where people expect to purchase the best: inspiring worship, good music, moving sermons, quality child care. As if we buy God and not vice versa.

    I have had new comers ask me what does my church have to offer them. My reply is often, "my church has to offer you and your family the blessing of serving God, what do you have to offer God that our church needs"
