plansrme Posted June 28, 2021 Share Posted June 28, 2021 We recently changed churches after 20 years. My husband and I love the new church. My son, I learned this weekend, does not. He had, instead, scoped out a Lutheran-Missouri synod congregation that he was willing to visit alone, so we all went. The church was lovely; the people were lovely; but the service did not speak to me at all, not one tiny bit. I cannot imagine doing that every Sunday and do not understand the appeal. My son, however, liked it a lot. But in the interest of worshiping together this last year before he leaves for college, I am trying to figure this one out and have some questions: 1. Any guesses as to what about a liturgical model is appealing to a 17 yo? He's never been exposed to it before. He's really into theology, but singing Bach? Reciting prayers? That is not the same thing. 2. What other denominations can we try? Google suggested the Anglican Church of North America, and there seem to be some congregations in the area. What else is liturgical, evangelical and conservative but has more than a 10-minute sermon the priest read from his script? Catholicism is not a match for us (or him) theologically. I even looked up the local Greek Orthodox Church, but their services are in Greek, so maybe not that one, either. We are open to a variety of Protestant denominations. I've spent long stretches of my adult life attending Baptist (Southern and otherwise), nondenominational and PCA churches, but what he is looking for is outside my experience.
