That's some commercial! Slightly related, some of the Yelp reviews of this church are hilarious:
Fellowship Church was like a bad movie. Turn down the volume. Extend the non-existent worship. The worship leader, Hope, has a beautiful voice which was barely utilized. The bookstore is a shameless facade of self-promotion with Ed Young videos and books everywhere. The selection of books was disappointing to say the least.
Attended a few times until I noticed that at every service giving them money was mentioned. EVERY TIME. I think giving them money was mentioned more than God.
Also, with all the money they receive, when you call for financial help or even for food, they send you to the CATHOLIC CHURCH!! WTH??? They dont give back to the people in their own community. Turning away poor people while the pastor sits in his $1M+ home? FOR SHAME!
VIP section at the very front? A lot of reserved seats? I have never seen this before or since at my other churches. It left a bad taste in my mouth. Pretty sure Jesus doesn't have a VIP front row section for all the Big Whigs of the church. Terrible.
If you want to be micromanaged, be part of the biggest popularity contest ever, and have your every move on the internet monitored and censored, this is the perfect church for you. I wonder if this post will get flagged like my last one did. Hmmmm....
The current message series is focused on a 3D experience. 3D glasses are given to all visitors upon arrival. The theme is somewhat cheesy and heavy handed with a watered down gospel message which is unsatisfying. Are these gimmicks really necessary to "sell" Christ??
In a desperate attempt to appear hip and current, minister Ed Young uses slang such as "H-Rod" when referring to Herod. I was definitely not amused and persuaded to think just the opposite about Fellowship Church.
