Welcome to the fellowship of community friendship Facebook page! We’re so excited to rethink church with you today to aim for something much more like your favorite jeans: comfortable and hip! Never mind original sin, reverence, and piety—outmoded concepts if we ever saw them—instead, set your sights on innovation, excitement, and realizing your true self.
Jesus was nothing like an icon. He was an iconoclast. He smashed tradition down like a dirty dog! Remember that scene in the temple? Today, we’re innovating like Jesus to meet sinners where they are. That’s right: we’re taking to Twitter.
Starting today, we’re organizing the fellowship more loosely and organically to fit our members’ busy lives. Service times are no longer static; instead, they will change time with the times and be announced a half hour before the service starts from our Twitter account, @mobchurch. Have you seen those YouTube videos of the Hallelujah Chorus arising spontaneously in a shopping mall? Yep, you’ve guessed it: we’ll be the first ever flash-mob church.
Goodbye planning! Goodbye, organization! Now our church can follow the Spirit wherever he blows. We’re sure the Holy Spirit will soon have his own Twitter account for even better real-time updates. Until then, join the mob! With this much enthusiasm, we can’t go wrong.
Stay tuned for future services incorporating local elements into worship. Ganache and wheat gluten in bakeries, paint and pottery in the artist’s workshop for even more authentic and personalized worship experiences.
