What's our worship service like?
The whole message, or context, of the day is examined. We ask questions like: "What is it that God's word is trying to convey? What action does the key scripture passage call us to do? What worship elements best develop the message of the morning?" In this way, we plan worship to be content-driven, not style-driven. Main Street strives to never be classified as contemporary, blended, or traditional. We do not want to be ultra-stuffy or overly casual. We want to be what God intended us to be; a place focused on worshiping the Savior, not a style. Being content-driven provides the pastor, staff, worship leaders, and the congregation an opportunity to sample from all styles and expressions of worship, assembling the best of the best in passing along the message of the day. If a traditional hymn speaks the best, we will sing a hymn. If a funny drama speaks the best, we will use a drama. If silence, applause, tears or laughter are the most appropriate form of worship, then by all means follow the Spirit’s leading. Being content-driven is very freeing for those who plan our times of corporate worship. Being content-driven spans the generations, linking young with the not-so-young. Being content-driven allows Main Street to avoid the trap of being classified by a worship style. Being content-driven allows us to reach a much wider spectrum of people from all walks of life.
