Well, Neighborhood Church of Redding has made the local paper…sort of. There is an article that really sounds like us, minus a couple details. The point of the article is the contrast between a small traditional church and a large modern church and how in a business sense the modern church is the one a hypothetical stockholder chooses for investment. Besides that, the article mentioned a four-piece rock band with two background singers–just like my worship team–and that it was sort of fun. Now, for that I hope he really is talking about my church. The phrase heard spoken by yours truly that has sadly caused most controversy in my years of music ministry: "It’s OK to have fun in church!"
A couple other strange occurrences with the news: some photographer was taking pictures of our church signs in the parking lot this afternoon and we were called by a news agency wanting to do a story on us for FOX or ABC or something like that. I’ll post when I get details. Buzzworthy?
