Neighbors are tired of loud rock music at Community Church

Neighbors are tired of loud rock music at Gold Creek Community Church services but feel powerless to get anyone to do anything about it. One church member is the Snohomish County sheriff.

I haven't had to contend with pop music in church lately, but this could get me riled again: Noisy Church

The Mill Creek-area church has no conventional religious trappings — crosses and altars — and music is the main part of the worship experience. It attracts young people traditional churches don't, say the pastors. "Music is a powerful medium," Pastor Larry Ehoff, the worship director, told the congregation on Sunday.
The church is a brown multibuilding complex in the middle of a large parking lot ringed by trim suburban homes, many bearing red signs admonishing the church members for "not respecting their neighbors."
