Why are we doing this?
The mission field is changing. Sunday morning is no longer Sabbath for many people, for many reasons. Worship options at times other than Sunday mornings must be offered.
-Our current Sunday worship attendance does not merit the energy and person-power necessary for 3 morning services.
-We will make a much better first impression on visitors and guests with a two service Sunday format.
-Our volunteer base will be better utilized on Sunday with two services.
-A dedicated Discipleship hour will be offered. Our senior pastor can be free to participate in the Sunday educational programs.
-A Wednesday evening worship opportunity will engage persons not currently attending worship.
-We need a healthy change!
-These are just a few of the opportunities this experiment will offer.
