I spent the morning at a training class to start teaching R.E. at our church. We had the class in the church basement. I know we were not actaully IN the church but we were gathered as our church community. I feel we, the people make up the church. I took my seat and turned off my cell phone. Others entered the room and did that same. I talked to others in the room and even made a new friend. One person left their phone on and it rang a few times in class. She even took a phone call while the teacher was talking.
I am starting to think during Church functions cellphones should be left in the car. I have heard phones vibrate in church. Once during a baptism a cellphone rang.
How do the rest of you feel? Have you heard cell phones in church?

I think it is rude and distracting. I go to a church with 3000 people if everyone left thier phones on and texted during service it would be loud. I do share our churches message afterwards. They video record the whole service and I link it to my facebook. I love technology but don't feel it should stop me from listening and feeling the spirit. I know the Holy Spirit is not living in my phone so I don't want to take away from that. Someones loud ringing phone could distract someone enough they miss out on something that could change their life. Self absorbtions does not belong in church.
