I will say that at my church 99% of the congregation have zero clue that there are backing tracks. I only realized it one day when I looked at the back of the stage and realized there wasn't a drummer-but there were drums.

The Martin Smith version or the Tomlin version?

I'm with this, especially for smaller churches. I think it tends to be distracting for people when there are major instruments present that are not being played on stage, at least it would be for my church. we have a sunday morning attendance of 150-200, and sometimes we just don't certain musicians. Once a month we have acoustic sunday, to let our one drummer have a weekend off, and it's perfectly fine. No one has a problem with it. Backing tracks are tricky in a smaller setting, they're not flexible at all.

Just heard the original version for the first time this past week. I like parts of the Vol. 1 version, and parts of the Vol. 2 version... I just still can't quite get into the "God's great dance floor" line, which is really the big hook of the song. So I can't bring myself to introduce it at church.. maybe sometime. We'll see.
