12 Things I learned when our church started another worship service

There’s something about the new that really works.  In our lives we see new things all the time, and we’ve come to expect them.  Tim Horton’s has a new sandwich every month.  We like this.  New stores open, and we go.  A new fitness class starts at the gym, and we join it.  New things are naturally shared and discussed.  It’s news.

I learned that by starting another service, people who were in the community and looking for a connect or a re-connect to church felt very happy to come.

Picture walking into an established group or society in your town.  Full of people.  All seated.  Some people can do that easily and comfortably.   Most people can’t.  It’s harder to walk into something established.  To feel ownership in it.  That’s it a place for you.

I learned that with the new service, people just freely came and took ownership of it very quickly.   And still do.

  1. We really appreciate the ‘newness’ that is still very present. There is a feeling that the service itself is alive and active. It changes, and that kind of dynamic environment encourages ownership in the creation of each service.

    But with one absolutely essential constant: The focus on Jesus Christ.
