Pandemic prompts churches to consider permanent changes
Before the pandemic, Long Hollow’s in-person attendance was significantly larger than viewership for its online services. The church, which ranks among the largest in the Southern Baptist Convention, has resumed in-person meetings. But its online participation is now three times larger than in-person attendance.

The shift is not unique to Long Hollow. Some expect decreased in-person attendance to be permanent.

In recognition of the new reality, Long Hollow has begun the process of creating an intentional, permanent online church ministry ‚Äď which includes hiring an online-specific pastor, finding ways to facilitate membership remotely, as well as conducting the ordinances and small groups in cities hours or even states away. ...

"The shift is not unique to Long Hollow. Some expect decreased in-person attendance to be permanent."

It just goes to show that the average church member is dissatisfied with his experience of church.

People who attend Hillsong type churches don't want to miss their high, which they can only get by attending their rock concert church service.

But Baptists and Presbyterians have been struggling along without the company of their Lord and Saviour for years, and don't seem too bothered about it. How many of them are bored with their church service and why is it? I put it down to the clergy/laity system, which began with the Anglicans and spread far and wide until everyone thought it was the normal way of doing things. But it is not normal, for it is not biblical. The people in the pews are unemployed, not doing anything except listening, instead of being actively involved and using their gifts to edify the body. Every Christian is gifted by Jesus, but church hierarchy says, "Oh we don't need that, we don't need Jesus and his gifts, we have got degrees and diplomas and seminary passes!"

Jesus dictated a few letters to churches in Asia Minor in the first century. I wonder how many he would have to write today?
