Church Service Schedule
« on: August 28, 2005, 09:29:43 PM »
I was just interesting in hearing how your church service flows.  I am wondering what is the best and smoothest transition within the order of service at church.

Ours is kinda long, and it isnt the smoothest!  It seems as soon as the spirit is high, if that correct to say, we shut it down with our next order of service.

So please share!

Ours:
Processional...Music Ministry
Devotion......
Responsive Reading
Lord's Prayer Recital
Altar Call/Meditation

Worship in Song...Music ministry
Worship in Giving...Tithes
Anouncements.....
Worship in Giving..Offering

Worship in song....Music ministry
Spoken Word....Pastor
Call to Discipleship

Worship in Song..Music ministry
Recognition of Guest....
Doxology

LadyWiz,

We start at 10 and we're done by 12.  Also insert  a welcome/fellowship between praise & worship and announcements.  Pastor doesn't believe it takes all day.  Sunday, we could have gone like that though!

At my last church we started at 1245am and ended by 2 to 2:15pm!

We had cut out things like announcements, and just placed them on the bulletin board. The message was usually about 30-40 minutes.....


....but back in Detroit, we'd be in church all day, literally, especially if you were a musician. Your church may have dismissed, but most likely, you'd go to one of your friend's churches. I know I did at least. I always like the late services the most, between 7pm and 11pm.

My pastor sometimes says at the 11am service that this is the only church that you go in on Sunday and leave out on Wednesday!  We found the 7:45am service to be shorter allowing us time to get other stuff done.    For me, it's extra time to visit other churches. Our service is pretty smooth.  Even when the pastor isn't there.

Our usually goes like this,

Worship Prelude
Praise and Worship
Prayer (usually the Lords Prayer)
Hymn of Praise
Reading of scripture
Welcome
Choral Praise
Sharing of His Tithes and our offerings (offertory selection)
Preparotory Praise
The Proclamation of God's Word
Invitation to Christian Discipleship`
Benediction

Worship in Giving..Offering

Worship in song....Music ministry
Spoken Word....Pastor
Call to Discipleship

Worship in Song..Music ministry
Recognition of Guest....
Doxology

I like when you seperate the Worship in Giving (Tithes) and Worship in Giving (Offering). I like how you put the announcements in the middle to seperate them.

The only thing that I think is really different is waiting until the end of the service to recognize your guests...
