This Presbyterian church received a 2013 Fairfax County Exceptional Design Award. The building offers a contemporary aesthetic to express the Korean Community’s diversity of ages and the transition from traditional eastern philosophy to a more western-oriented philosophy. The church is organized around a central garden that serves to unify its diverse programs. For more information, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpz/designawards/2013. Photo credit: Dan Cunningham

What is church like for Protestants?

Question by Wayward Surfette: What is church like for Protestants?
I heard another user say once “….while you Protestants enjoy your donuts and coffee in the pews….” but I’m not sure if that’s true. Catholic churches are very solemn and the congregation is very respectful (for the most part) and quiet (again, for the most part). No one in my church brings distractions for their children, instead they tell their kids to listen to the priest. Definitely no one eats during church, besides the Eucharist. There is, in fact, a rule that people must fast one hour before taking the Eucharist except for water, medicine, and if for some health reason you have to eat during that time. Can someone describe for me a Protestant Mass?
@ royal wait…. what?

They are very uncomfortable and costly. Wouldn’t it be better and more homey if everyone sat on bean bag chairs?

Question by Wanglik: When did catholic churches start putting pews in?
I notice from old engravings that in the gothic period there are no pews. When did we start cluttering churches with them?
