I have been in Atlanta for about 5 yrs now (4 for school) and honestly wasn’t interested in trucking out to any of the churches that seemed so far away. This is partly because I had no car and also because I was forced to go to church whether I wanted to go or not ( like most kids growing up) so I liked having a choice on Sundays and getting away from those two and a half hour long service on top of Sunday school ( and being there most of the week). I was pretty much “churched out” by the time I got to college so I just didn’t have the desire to go. However I did want to receive the message so I would stream services live from the potter’s house ( T.D. Jakes) after about a yr of doing so I realized that I needed a church home and missed the fellowship.
I had decided Destiny was going to be one of the services I visited after looking it up on this site and YouTube and after todays service I’m glad I did.
The environment is welcoming and contemporary with small touches of tradition but not so much that you feel like your in your grandmas church back home. It’s evident that they are trying to reach todays people, however and whomever. I can appreciate that.
They have a praise team rather than a choir ( I prefer a choir, like the sound) but it makes sense since the stage is only so big. They provide preprinted notes on your bulletin for the pastors sermon so you can take notes, and they don’t call you out if your a first time visitor to stand and state your business which I like. Get there on time ( like 10 am) or you’ ll be sitting in the overflow cause the actual sanctuary is a little small for the amount of people they have. Overall I felt comfortable so I’ll be going back.
