My wife and I recently moved and are seeking a church family. We are age 61, both born-again over 40 yrs ago, always been active/supporting members or seeking such membership and conservative, Bible (all of it, not parts and pieces) believing folk. Needless to say, our first considerations in our selection (esp these days) are the doctrinal position and practices/functions/emphases relative to God's whole Word and is it disseminated/taught in an interesting and effective manner. Then there is the fellowship and finding opportunities to serve using our gifts, talents, abilities. As most here who have been in the "family" for a few decades or longer, we have progressed through the pain, frustration, disillusionment, and disappointment of realizing and accepting the fact that all Christian fellowship previous to the glory, wonder, and perfection of heaven will be tainted to some degree with sin; regardless the environment; that our ONLY real safe haven is in communion with God the Father/God the Son/God the Holy Spirit. When I start getting dependent upon human relationships God seems to always bring me back to the Words of Jer ch 17 about not trusting man and the wicked and deceitful condition of man's heart with which we ALL battle within and without. Yet, we all need good Christian fellowship (iron sharpens iron; a cord of three strands is not easily broken; wisdom is seated in much counsel; search for significance; opportunities to exercise our gifts talents and abilities, etc), is one of the aspects sought when seeking a new church family. We have finally found a church with an acceptable doctrinal position and good fellowship group to belong and one of its "core values" (not stated as such) is all members incorporated into the fellowship utilizing their individual gifts, talents, abilities. The only problem so far is the fact that the group has several Pastors of which it seems two predominately preach. The oldest and best by a huge landslide only preaches now and then and the young one who has probably preached 80% of the time so far (been going since April) just kills my wife and I by his style and delivery. He preaches at a 6-8 yr old level and on top of that he says the same thing over in different words 2 or 3 times and he would rather preach from his experiences and head knowledge and using a "gentile" touchy-feely manner than crafting the message with Scripture making the point. I am trying to love the man but I absolutely hate and am offended by his preaching. We have been looking for over two years now and have exhausted the potential Bible preaching, believing, and practicing churches in this new area. When I suggested we try to move on my wife..., well she wants to stay due to the unbelievably good fellowship of which we haven't been able to enjoy for way too many years. I don't know if I can even find another church to try out. I have exhausted the ph book and online resources. As this church uses the auditorium of another church (who by the way is the church this church broke off of about 100 yrs ago and they have been all over the area and just recently are back on the the same property) I suggested that when this guy preaches we just go down the hallway further from Sunday school to the other worship svc and see if it is any better. No go for her. She did agree to just going home and watch some more of media ministry. I catch three sermons (EXCELLENT expounders of God's Word), taking notes, BEFORE "going to church" - forsake not the assembling together... My PROBLEM is the division. Worship here, fellowship there, serve and support where, and accountable where? My wife is right in that there is nowhere else to go unless we want to consider driving so far away that travel time and gas/vehicle money become a significant consideration but I want to be easily close to my fellowship so I can be there when needed. I guess my question is/are: 1) Would it be acceptable to the Lord if I divided what I have been accustomed to finding "under one roof" among several? and 2) If so how do I divide my tithing, gifts, talents, and abilities? and 3) Will the church be agreeable to such a divided "membership"?
