L24 is a church that is prioritizes personal relationships over the “Evangelical Industrial Complex”. The EIC is a direct descendant of our consumer culture. We go to church, we receive “services”-- worship time, sermons, programs-- and we theoretically “pay” for these services through tithing and participating in programs the church is running. We show up as consumers to “get fed”. We find that we do best when we use our time together for different purposes.
