Worship Center to Offer New Service Times

Update June 19, 2018: Further details were made available in an article called, "7 Things That Make Monday Nights Special." The article included up-to-date info on Kids Ministry, the pre-service meal being offered weekly, and other tips about the new Monday night service.

Update May 17, 2018: A survey was sent out to receive needed input from the congregation. Among other things, the 998 survey responses helped with the decision on the 7pm time for the Monday night service.

On Sunday, May 6, Pastor Matt announced that Worship Center would be moving to two services on Sundays at 9am and 11am, and one service on Monday evenings. The time for Monday evening services will be 7pm.

There are two main reasons for these new service times:

1. Time and space within and between services. We believe it's important for us to give ample opportunity for all God wants to accomplish within our services. Moving to two Sunday morning gatherings will allow a little more time in services.

Our current three service structure has created some issues of congestion on Sunday mornings, both on Main Street and in the parking lots. Moving to two services on Sundays will allow for more time and less congestion. Additionally, this will allow volunteers and staff the time they need to set up between services for ministries like WC Kids, Route 56, the café, worship and production teams, and more.

2. An opportunity for people to attend who can't come on Sunday mornings. Our desire is that people come to Worship Center and experience God in our services. However, there is a growing number of people who struggle to attend on Sundays. Due to work schedules, traveling, vacation, kids' sports activities and more, weekends are a conflict. Offering a Monday evening service will open the doors to impacting more people with the Gospel.

Effective June 24, we will move to two services on Sundays at 9am and 11am, and add a weekly Monday night service at 7pm starting June 25. On Sunday mornings, the 11am service will offer Spanish translation. The Monday night gathering will include the same format, worship, and message as the Sunday gatherings. On Monday nights, kids ministry will be offered for ages birth through Grade 4.
