What's the point?

I read a pastor's blog over the weekend who is frustrated that some of his churchgoers have left the church with the reason that they do not find themselves 'being fed' or that the church was giving them the 'depth' that they wanted.

What is the point of the local church? What should a person look for when finding a church? Should we approach church in a western, American consumer mindset? In other words, should I find the product that best suits my needs until the product becomes less adequate (or another product becomes more desirable?)

Lookin' for feedback on this. What should we the people of the church expect our church to provide for us spiritually/holistically?
