A survey we sent to the congregation earlier this year suggested that a service time other than Sunday morning was something that many of our families could and would use. After discussion with the church council and voters, we have opted to begin a trial run of a Saturday evening service beginning on August 2.
The Saturday evening service will mirror the worship service for the coming Sunday. The hymns, lessons, and sermon will be largely the same (though, depending on the size of the crowd, we may make a few adjustments on Saturday evening).
Worship on Saturday evening will be held at 6:00pm. The hope is that this is early enough for families with small children who need to be in bed sooner rather than later as well as those who have Saturday evening plans, but also late enough for people who have to work on Saturday.
If you have any questions about this new worship service, please let me know! Otherwise, I look forward to sharing the joy of sins forgiven in Jesus with you either on Saturday evening or Sunday morning!
