That kind of music is more suited to a ballpark than church—and it's too loud, say leaders of Bridgeway Community Church in Rockford, Michigan. But they're not talking about drums and guitars. "All of a sudden, we hear an organ through the wall," Tim Nelson, pastor of the proudly contemporary church, told The Grand Rapids Press. The organ dealer in the storefront next door to the church's office says he'll try to tone things down, but adds, "They are going to have to put up with some of it . …I'm in a state of heaven when I play."
This story was first reported in The Grand Rapids Press.1
