worship styles

>> October 23, 2009

The cool thing about Clutch is the opportunity to connect with pastors wives from all backgrounds and religious traditions.

We're curious to know what your worship experience is like at your church. So here's a poll of sorts.

Would you classify your church as:
a. liturgical
b. contemporary (praise and worship)
c. gen x/postmodern
d. traditional
e. blended

*I got my categories from pastorfinder.com

What about you? How would you describe your worship style? Is it the same as your church? Do you feel mismatched? How have you adjusted?

Tell us all about it.

My home church is more contemporary (think stuffy---I should have said that in a confession thread. LOL!) than I am. I prefer a worship where the Holy Spirit leads and things aren't done by the bulletin. As in, if I feel the need to pray at the altar, I can just go at any time. Things like that.

As far as our churches over here, they are not traditional or modern. They are Turkish Gypsy, which puts them in a class all by themselves. LOL! I love it!

The women generally sit on the floor while the men sit in chairs. They sing for an hour or more and then pray for quite a while. During prayer, they hold their hands out to heaven and all pray aloud.

After a time of prayer, testimonies are given. Then a sermon is preached, another prayer is prayed, more songs are sung, and everyone hugs and wishes peace to one another.

Sometimes these services go on all night long. They have no where to go, so when Jesus is in the midst, they are in no hurry to leave.

It is unlike anything I have ever seen before and I love it! I fit right in!

Excuse me, I meant to say my home church is more traditional than I. My only excuse for the typo is that it's late on this side of the world. :)

My Church is Contemporary by your list of descriptions and I LOVE it!

comtemporary with a tad bit of liturgy

Contemporary but we do a lot of liturgical things also ... everything with a purpose.

We are a mix of low- and high-church liturgical. I love it, and I feel like our journey to it has been long, sometimes difficult, but it is what we feel reflects the Biblical pattern of worship the best. Because my husband is the associate pastor and I am very involved in music, we have been influential in tweaking a liturgy that was already established when we arrived. I have been in every different style on the spectrum, and here is where I am at home.
