Searching for a Church in another area of the Country

So I have been away from home 3 months now. I am in an area of the country that has very few if any churches of the type I attend at home. I was a pianist for a Missionary Baptist Church in Mississippi for about 10 years. When we moved to Alabama, the only church that came close to that style was the Church of Christ. Now that I am here I am trying to find a church in an area where there are very few choices of that style. I went to one but I got so homesick when I did that I just dreaded going at all.  So I want to go, it makes feel more connected with God. If the sermon is good I feel renewed and as if I have learned something I can take through the week. I tried a totally different style of church today. It was recommended to me by my concierge. It is a very contemporary worship type of church. There was a lovely couple there that helped me find everything and introduced me to people. Everyone was very friendly. The style was a culture shock for me but I try to keep an open mind. It is the first time since I have been away from home that I attended a Sunday School and worship service both. The music and lights are definitely going to take some getting used to, but the depth of the message and the Bible study in Sunday school is the meat of the gospel I had been craving.
They offer 5 worship services and the fact that they have a large group of young people involved in the word and reading the bible has my respect. My own children have stopped attending church at home. Most of the pastors at home frown upon this contemporary worship but the numbers of young people in those churches are declining. I'm sorry but anything that gets teenagers and 20 somethings in church and reading the bible works for me. It is difficult when you are trying to acclimate yourself to a different area of the US with different ideas, traditions, food and worship. The things you grew up with just aren't available. I think you have to broaden your horizons, open your mind and your heart. Otherwise, you will miss the great opportunities God has to offer. My concierge hasn't been to church in 40 years but will go with me Wednesday night.
