Starting Sunday, June 4th...
Below is an excerpt from Pastor Darrin's letter to the church family in our May 2017 newsletter.
A couple of years ago, the elder ministry conducted a survey of the congregation regarding the worship service needs of our First Baptist family. The results of the survey were very helpful, and since that time, the elders have prayed and periodically discussed the results of the survey. In a recent elders' meeting, we revisited the surveys and reached unanimity in our discussion regarding the future direction of our worship services. The elders are recommending that we enter a four month trial period of a 9:00 a.m. equipping hour (Sunday School), and a 10:00 a.m. worship service.
So, beginning Sunday June 4th through Sunday September 24th, we will have our equipping hour (Sunday School) at 9:00 a.m., and our morning worship service will begin at 10:00 a.m. This change will help alleviate the strains on families that our current schedule is causing. It will also provide a little more margin for rest between our morning services, and our Sunday evening community groups.
As we work through this trial period, we will be monitoring the effects of the change on our church family, and will make a final recommendation regarding worship times to the church family at the end of September. If you have any questions or concerns during this trial period, please let me know. I would love to hear from you, answer your questions, and address your concerns. Please know I am praying for you.
