Finding a good church?

I live in hamilton county, Indiana, and am looking for a church where the sermons are not old school sermons, where the pastors talk and relate to today. Can anyone offer any options?

  • We each have different needs that need to be met. I as a Catholic, have it easier. It's kind of a grow where you're planted, God put you here for a reason situation. I don't know what old school means exactly. The message is the same today as it was 100 years ago.

  • You might try to find a Disciples of Christ church. It's definitely Christian, but more down-to-earth and less ceremonial than other churches. There's Communion every week, and anyone is welcome to partake, which is a big deal for me. Decide what's important to you, then call around. Do you want a kids' program? A nursery? Is music what you need? Hymns on an organ or modern tunes? Is infant baptism a plus or a deal breaker? Once you're sure what matters to you, then you can narrow down your options and visit a few places. Good luck.

  • @adnilm, the message may be the same (assuming, of course, that it's a bible-believing church, sadly these days you have to study/watch closely to be sure) but what the OP means by old school is more the delivery style in terms of music(one example of contem;porary is the use of flags in worship), how formal/casual the church is, PLUS different denominations vary quite a bit in how reserved , or not, the service is in general.

  • You can find one that has a good youth program and possibly Celebrate Recovery. Both of those will help you know they are in the modern day.

  • Try especially larger churches, they often have more options and variety of services.

  • The best way, I think, is ti just try out the different churches to see what you like.

  • Honestly, this sounds like a great blog. Start with the phone book, attend one service each week and blog about your experiences.
    Or you could skip the blogging and just visit the local churches around you until you find one you like.

  • Pray and ask God to help you find a church and to put the right people in your path that will guide you. Find out what the creed of the Church is and how that particular denoination began. Try to find a church that has an uninteruppted line to Christ. Many people think that if they don't "feel good" when they go to a particular church that it is not for them but we shouldn't go to church to feel good but to come to know God and to find the way to Him. Good luck on your journey.
