Jennifer talked on the phone with a first-time visitor to Graystone who was previously involved in other churches. He said that they were “shopping for a new church” and went on to list out the features they were looking for in a new car church:
- a late 11:00 service
- a rock star church with contemporary worship
- a place they could slip out as soon as the service was over
- a church in which they didn’t have to serve
- a church where they can simply be fed
As Jennifer was sharing with me their shopping list, one of our kids blurted out, “They expect us to feed them?”
We died laughing.
They will be spending the next several weeks kicking around the tires at other church dealerships.
