Interesting how this lovely church filtered my Yelp comment - guess they don't tolerate any truthful comments - only the flattering ones.How shallow indeed. Here's my insightful comment:

3/19/2011 My first impression seeing the church from the highway, was "Wow, what a beautiful church - think I'll check it out." So, checked it out. Just seems to be a stereotypical mega church in America - "too cool for school." I really wanted to like it but just couldn't get past a few things.
FIrst, the band sang some songs - they all sounded the same - nothing to sing along to - very monotone but they thought it was worshipful I'm sure. Then, the music leader asked the congregation to sing and said that since many of the women were away on a retreat that it would be mostly testosterone heard from the congregation. Hahahah. So very cute - but, so very inappropriate and disrespectful to use that verbiage in the Lord's house. But, I gave him a pass since it's typical of the band people to be a bit arrogant. So, then the pastor person/speaker for the day came on stage. Hoped for some improvement. But, just more of the same. He had a very slick/coiffed hair cut and so-cool glasses to match. His perfectly pressed white dress shirt was left untucked outside of his pants. He had the whole look going on. LIke saying "I'm one of you - laid back/cool - got it going on." But, thought he might have something inspiring to say. First thing he said was how "forward thinking" he was - so caught up in thinking ahead, blah, blah, blah. My thought was, "How silly he looks with his pressed white shirt untucked from his pants - I think a forward-thinking person would first tuck in your shirt when coming to worship at the Lord's house." I know it's a few generations back, but just pictured my grandfather sitting there listening to this pompous person and laughing at his arrogance and self absorption - thinking that he needs to finish dressing before stepping on the stage and "thinking forwardly" about anything. I know it's the thing to do - dress down for church - esp. for church as if to be more welcoming to everyone. But, I think that anyone who comes to church can tuck in their shirt - not a lot of effort. If they go to their job, they have to tuck in their shirt -why not at the Lord's house to show respect for where they are. But, my impression is that these folks are more impressed with themselves than with anything else and you could tell them anything - they "so" know it all. Yes, I'm still looking for a church with some humilty and respect for the Lord's house --- it may take awhile since most churches are in competition with each other to be "more cool and contemporary" than the next church so to attract more of the unchurched out there. Clue #! - meeting to study and teach/preach the Word of God, pray and be in God's presence will draw more people than all the outward appearances. Plus, the Lord will add to His church not how cool and contemporary the pastors try to be - as they're trying in the flesh and in their own efforts to draw and keep people coming and in so doing have such shallow, empty, non-challenging messages. So, it keeps the shallow coming. You reap what you sow. So, yes, the building is great but the stuff inside is bit too much fluff and cotton candy for my preference

This is by far the best church that I have discovered. Pastors actually teach things that other pastors are afraid to teach because fear that they may lose members/attendees. They are politically active and keep up in the current issues. They hold their church body responsible for their actions and there is great follow up for new visitors. There are many, many different ways of getting involved in the church (many ministries) and encourage everyone to find their gifts and serve in those area(s). There are 'community groups' which are smaller groups that can connect on an intimate basis and study the bible together. Excellent teaching, music and people! If you don't like it the first t ime, give it another chance!!
