A Redneck Church?

Since we are starting a church in the deep South, we have to ask "Will we be a Redneck Church?"  I found the below test...

You'll Know Yours Is A Redneck Church If:

The finance committee refuses to provide funds for the purchase of a chandelier because none of the members knows how to play one.

People ask, when they learn that Jesus fed the 5000, whether the two fish were bass or catfish, and what bait was used to catch 'em.

When the pastor says, "I'd like to ask Bubba to help take up the offering", five guys and two women stand up.

Opening day of deer season is recognized as an official church holiday.

A member of the church requests to be buried in his 4-wheel-drive truck because "It ain't never been in a hole it couldn't get out of,"

The choir is known as the "OK Chorale."

In a congregation of 500 members, there are only seven last names in the church directory.

Baptism is referred to as "branding."

There is a special fund raiser for a new church septic tank.

Finding and returning lost sheep isn't just a parable.

High notes on the organ set the dogs to howling.

People think "rapture" is what you get when you lift something too heavy.

The baptismal font is a #2 galvanized livestock watering trough.

The choir robes were donated by (and embroidered with the logo from) Billy Bob's Barbecue.

The collection plates are really hub caps from a '56 Chevy.

*We're happy to say, all indications point to the fact that we are NOT a Redneck Church!

I'm thankful we aren't a redneck church... I don't think I could stand the "howling dogs" during the high notes on the organ... ha!

I am glad to see that you understand what a redneck church is. You cannot avoid being one if you do not know what one is.

Looking forward to hearing great things about Life Church as it takes roots and grows into a great work of God.

Their daughter has cancer, you're helpful too, but you need to back the hell up and let them support her.3. Your anger is a serious problem, and you need to do something before you pass it along to your kids.4. If you don't want the kids to remember you the way you remember your father, you need to change your behavior.
