It totally blows my mind how 300+ people move in the same direction at the same time..and it's not coming from the music/worship team, they tend to follow the shift vs lead it...if that makes sense.

But, my church was never a 3 stepper church, so doesn't really fit the criteria here anyhow.
Do you mean "they tend to follow the Spirit"? (what is the "shift"?)

Yeah, that. Just a shift in what's going on. It'll go from dancing, loud music to a hush and half the congregation on their faces worshiping God quietly, with deep reverence.... Suppose that'd be following the Spirit.

Re: Change The Doctrine, Lose The Exuberance?

if the music is more exciting the worship tends to be more rejoiceful and if the music is more solemn then the worship is more solemn too

You'll see just about everything you'd see in a typical Pentecostal service at times.

You don't have to become stuffy and boring just because you aren't UPC anymore.
