Idea Of The Week: Going Traditional

Scroll down to content

Our church (Northview) is very contemporary in our expressions of worship. However, every once in awhile we do a hymn. Or use some more traditional looking staging. Or use the interior (or exterior) of an old, beautiful church on our big screen. We are committed to speaking to people in their language. That’s why most of what we do is modern. But we also want to acknowledge that we are part of something bigger. Something that’s been around for a long time. We’re here because of God’s grace, but many times through the means of the work and sacrifice of those who have come before us.

We recognize (usually) that Northview is A church (ie. a gathering of believers) – not THE church. We have thousands of people on the weekend, but we’re still a very small part of the “big C” church. We do what we can to connect and partner with other churches – in fact our Lead Pastor is solidly behind an initiative in Indianapolis called Partnership of Churches – it’s a group of suburban churches that are partnering with churches in the inner city to make a difference. We’re part of something bigger than ourselves, and it’s good to remember that once in awhile…
