I’ve mentioned size and age conflicts that exist in every church, but what happens when you get crazy requests from members who are threatening to leave?
My Sunday School teacher recently told our class about a couple that had left the church after complaining multiple times that there was a red guitar on stage. He then told us about running into old church members at the grocery store who wanted to brag to him about their new church where they can wear blue jeans.
You can’t please everyone, but isn’t church meant to be more about the message than the decor?
Many people have even complained about the music at my church being too upbeat, while others have complained about it being too slow and traditional.
There is always a huge risk in losing people when they are unhappy with something at church, so do you just let them go and bid them adieu?
What crazy requests/complaints have you gotten?
