Andy Stanley’s North Point Community Church attempted a reboot of the British Invasion during their official worship service on Sunday.

They described it as a Beatles medley on their Facebook page.

They sang segments of Beatles classics, ending with Hey Jude. They called upon their audience to sing along and raise their hands to the Beatles tune as they sang, “na na na na na…”.

Yet another distraction at an official worship service. Further commentary is not necessary.

Recently they did an opener with rather suggestive lyrics singing, “Baby love the way you turn me on.”

Some more suggestive lyrics from an opener.

Oddly enough, Andy Stanley has this quote on the NPCC website.

Why write about this? Because Andy Stanley and many other churches use these tactics which in the end detract from focusing on the gospel at an official church worship service.

Official church worship services are not extracurricular activities. There is plenty of time for fun, recreation, and out of the box creativity that can be done outside of an official church worship service.

I used to agree with, and promote these approaches to “ministry”. It took a “rude meanie head” to open my eyes. I hope this serves as eye-opening food for thought.
