Pastor Hoffstetter thoroughly embarrassed his teenage children this week after doing ‘the dab’ during Sunday morning’s responsive reading.
“I just wanted to lighten the mood a little,” explained Hoffstetter. “Sometimes the readings are so intense and serious. Too serious if you ask me.”
Hoffstetter’s children ran out of the sanctuary the moment they saw their father raise his arms.
“Oh, gosh, no, no, please stop,” screamed 16-year-old Samantha as she ran into the lobby. “Put your arms down, Dad. Please!”
But it was too late. As soon as Hoffstetter dabbed, the rest of the congregation followed suit and soon all the teens in the audience were thoroughly embarrassed by their parents.
“We’re trying to reach out to the young people,” said Hoffstetter. “Unfortunately for some reason we’ve seen a real decline in attendance from that particular demographic.”
In an effort to bring the teens back into the fold, Hoffstetter plans to perform his own gangsta rap songs during the offertory from now on.
