Congregations seeking to transform who determine to have a contemporary worship service choose a service that truly is contemporary and not the 1970s on steroids. They have more variety in musicians than guitarists, a keyboardist, and a drummer. They have singers who can sing harmony. They have songs that are deeper quality than 7/11 songs.
When they say, “We are going to worship now,” they are not just talking about music. They are talking about prayer, scripture, storytelling, interaction, teaching, a call to action rather than, “Well we are finished now and hope to see you next week.”
