Changes in Worship Services

RainerThom Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources, recently shared a list of rapid changes in church worship services.  His list includes the disappearance of choirs (down 10% in just 10 years), the emergence of screens as normative in worship, a shift toward more casual dress for worship, and longer sermons.

So What?

Worship services have changed dramatically in recent years.  Rainer’s use of the word rapid to describe several shifts is significant. As religious affiliation continues to wane, it is only reasonable to expect that the rate of change within the church — including worship — will accelerate.

How has worship changed in your local congregation since 2000?
