Why?

  • A 10AM service is more guest-friendly than a 9AM service.
  • A coffee time in the fellowship hall will create a welcoming first impression to visitors.
  • Everyone is able to focus on the morning worship and will not be as distracted by other church responsibilities.
  • This schedule creates an opportunity for a more dynamic kids and teens ministry without requiring extra volunteer hours or a major overhaul to our ministry.
  • We can form our ministry to be welcoming to visitors more easily if our service started at 10AM.
  • Everyone can be on time more easily for a 10AM service.
  • This schedule creates an opportunity for a more in-depth adult Bible study.
  • This schedule creates extra time for fellowship, which will help to continue to foster strong relationships in our church.

This is the best way to …

  • Maximize our kid’s and teen’s ministries.
  • Develop a guest-friendly ministry.
  • Train adults through in-depth Bible studies, doctrinal studies, and topical studies.
  • Foster an environment of fellowship and family.
