Does Size Matter When It Comes To Worship?

Once again it's time to pass out boasting bragging rights....My church is bigger than yours!!When it comes to worship I don't believe it matter about the size..... "For where two or three come together in my Name, there I am with them" [John 18:20]....I have  always  taken that verse to mean just that 2 or 3.

"Outreach" magazine is out with it's annual list of the top ten largest churches in America....Most of  the 100 are non-denominational churches from the South and Midwest....Why is it important that the world no the size of a church congregation? And if so many people are choosing megachurch worship then  why isn't the overall numbers of people attending church growing?
