What do you like most about your church? Is it the people, the cute kids, the coffee after the service?

As an Episcopalian, I enjoy the liturgical aspect of worship. Some people might think that liturgy is boring or repetitive, but to me it is very helpful. It is a way to remind me that God exists and cares for us, even if we can't 'feel' Him. I also enjoy the people and different kinds of ministires. I help with the healing intercessor ministry, as well as the children's chapel. I don't much care to sing, but that's just because I'm probably tone-deaf and don't want to subject anyone else to the sound of it!

I initially was drawn to the church I attend now because of the music. I grew up in a Lutheran church and worship was always sooo boring. We were close to a college and the old fogeys there wouldn't even let me organize a dance to draw in some younger people. I was new in town and when my girlfriend at the time, now my wife, suggested we go to this nondenominational church for Easter service I was a little aprehensive. When they started to sing it was like a homecoming for me. They had drums, keyboard and a dude that could totally thrash on the electric guitar. Worship came alive for me. The music got me there and the people kept us there. They have a great childrens ministry. The Pastor is great and very down to earth. The church as a whole has a heart for the lost.
