"No matter what the style, even no matter what the tempo, the music in church should have life, because Jesus is life. Music, though a temporary composition, should have the qualities of eternity, because in Christ is eternal life. Styles tend to…"

"Choir has shifted from being a central element of church to a group of dedicated, usually older, folk that are still able to contribute due to the grace of the rest of the Body, many of whom are acculturated to a changed musical world that they…"

"Well Ryan if you had a growing service why move. Normally what I have seen is the 2nd service is the more traditional setting, and is mostly the older portion of your church. hard for me to say is (scene I ma getting real close to the senior years)…"

"I'ts semantics at this point. If you're doing them together, then you're not actually blending are you? That usually means that hymns are played with the band in a more modern style. I thought the idea of blending was at the…"

"I was replying to Ryan, Stevo, that's why I said what I did. Anyhoo, I think of it as "blending" ccm and hymns... Sorry that this reply is on top of yours, but I didn't know where else to put it :-)"

"Ok, I'll bite. What is a blended service? And no organ mate - piano Please, no organ."

"You think playing a couple of P/W songs with a band, then organ hymns, then band and so on is blended???"

"What were you thinking of as blended? It's one service with two styles of music."

"I suppose it's different for everyone. We don't use organ. I hope we never do unless Greg plays it."

"I've never heard of doing this. I wouldn't call that a "blended" service. Not blended at all."

"That sounds like it would work well. I guess its just the lurching back and forth between the band and the organ that I don't like at this local church. Its like now its 2010 and now its 1710!"

"If you have a natural break in your service, then the two styles work fine. We have an announcement period where the praise band steps down from their set. After the announcements and a prayer, we start with a couple of hymns. Total number of songs…"

"I think it depends on what blended actually means. A local church here has a bended service with a full band/worship team AND classical organ/choir. So the flow of the service is terrible with worship sets interrupted for organ led hymns, sometimes…"

"How do you figure that blended services are an invention of the devil?"
