Does Worship Belong In Church?
Some people many look at this question and think, “Ray, aren’t you a Christian musician? Why would you question whether or not worship belongs in church?” Most church services consist of a time of worship, announcements, taking up a collections (tithes and offerings) and the pastor (or guest speaker) delivering a sermon. Some churches also receive communion every week while others do this once a month. Then there are the other elements of church which happen less frequently like baptisms, baby dedications and other things.

It's all organized religion which Jesus came to teach us was not what mattered.. Just as he spoke to the Pharisees about their practices they put so much into so has the world decided what is good for the worship of God. What they have come up with in these different churches is not what God wants from us. God only needs a pure heart for him. If we want to sing we can sing. King David danced down the streets and his wife was struck barren because she called him a fool. So it is within yourself an your relationship with God to decide how your relationship will go all else is like lambs being led to slaughter. I think you are right to question this.
