When I was 20 years old, I decided to attend church services for the first time. King Street Church was the first church I went to and it is in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. There were three different types of worship services for different groups of people. One service was very traditional and most older people attended that one. I chose the 9:45 worship service because it was open to all age groups and the younger people attended.
I chose to join Bent-tree Bible Fellowship, a non-denominational church. I attended this church for about 2 years when I started my sophomore year at DBU and was offered a position in children’s ministry at First Baptist Colleyville. Bent-tree and FBC were the two largest churches I have been a part of both between 3,000-5,000 in total Sunday attendance. Both follow the same basic order of service. Begin around 11am with 10-15 minutes of worship singing, then announcements, followed by an special aspect of the service like a video a special song etc.… The sermon lasts about 25-35 minutes and we close with prayer and one final worship song.
Lebanon United Methodist Church Located in the small, rural town of Neeses, South Carolina, is the quaint little building known as Lebanon United by the members of the church. Consisting mostly of elderly couples, much like my personal church, this church was not too farfetched for me to enjoy. A lot of families fill up the pews on Sunday mornings’; one of those families being my son’s girlfriends. At least I know that my future in-laws are church going! I can personally say that I had never been to any church service other than my own and when my son invited me to join him and the family for service one Sunday, I was of course hesitant.

Lawrence Church they introduced me to a few other members of the congregation of which they befriended after attending the church over the past couple of years. The members were very friendly, and offered to answer any of my questions after hearing about my fieldwork assignment.

On my right sat one of my friend’s Jacob while on my left was Margaret, one of the members I had recently been introduced too. I was glad that Margaret had sat next to me during the mass as she explained hidden meanings or otherwise peculiar things to me throughout the
Neil Cole’s book on “Church 3.0: Upgrades for the Future of the Church” summarizes church styles based on three version of the styles. Cole builds off the version 1.0 which is based on the church in the first-century and version 2.0 which is the modern day church to come up with version 3.0. This version 3.0 Cole states is the second major shift that is occurring now (Cole, 2010, p5-7). Cole’s supposed method is church structure and people focused; discussing issues on money, children, leadership, and teaching to make the church better if they utilizes the shifts that the author references in the book. Church 3.0 shifts the church from an institutionalized approach that is program-driven and clergy-led.

Indeed, I did had the most serious problem of all: eternal separation from God. But I didn’t knew this until God’s Word was explained to me through those first weeks I started to visit this church. I remember counting up the days after my conversion, because I started to see the world through Him. God kept revealing His Word into my life and strengthening me through my college years, my new work and my new responsibilities as a later youth
