That's tough. It's so silly to me that churches get so stuck in their ways. I'm fortunate that my church is pretty easy going. We have a praise and worship team( I used to sing on it) and they do a mix of modern and older. Rarely a hymn or anything like that though. Honestly, I think a church that doesn't listen to it's congregation is a church that won't last. Eventually all those older folks will be gone and then what. KWIM?
And I can understand honoring your SO's feelings. In my relationship with my DH though, if he didn't want to go to church, I'd still go. It's important to me that my children go...even if sometimes, I don't feel like it.But having said that, you do have to do what works for your relationship. And your SO might be upset if you went with out him.
