"That’s not Sunday Mass. That’s a church festival."
The Sunday snapshots:
A worshiper raises a hand in prayer during Sunday services at the Next Levvel Church in Stallings, North Carolina. On Father's Day, at least three area churches used this annual day for Dad to try to woo more men into the pews. Pollsters and authors have told us for years that women tend to go to church in much higher percentages than male. "Why Men Hate to Go to Church:" was the title of one bestseller that tried to explain why. Next Level Church, just inside Union County, turned Father's Day Sunday into "Ultimate Man Day," complete with cigars, ESPN highlights and turkey legs in the lobby and motorcycles and cool cars in the parking lot. The church also shortened the service to 45 minutes. JOHN D. SIMMONS, Charlotte Observer.

Brenda Brenes and husband Carlos Brenes reminisced about riding in a GTO in their younger years. The couple looked over a 1967 GTO at the next Level Church Sunday. JOHN D. SIMMONS - Charlotte Observer.
I subscribe to the theory that each individual should worship the way he/she chooses.
But there’s worship, and then there’s partying.
