In your church, do you still use hymnals, and sing the traditional hymns, or do they project the songs on a screen,and sing more modern praise and worship songs?

In our church, they project the songs on a large screen,and we don't even have hymnals anymore. We sing more praise and worship songs, but we also sing some of the traditional hymns. They are both great,and I love the mixture of both.

  • Both. I like the mix with the new praise and worship song but I also love the old hymnal songs I grew up with. Our church has a very nice mix of both (my kids love the words on the power point though LOL).

  • Modern gospel with some old gospel mixed in. No projector and no books...everyone just sort of falls into the praise. If you dont know the words you still end up clapping, on your feet and just getting into the worship.

  • We have our own band! But the songs are all projected on the front wall. Most of the music is the modern type but we also sing some of the traditional ones. The hymnals are still in the pews and we do use them but probably only once or twice a month.
