Last week someone asked me why we only have a morning service on Easter Sunday and no evening service. You may be interested in my reply, shown below.
For the past few years, we have had our main Easter outreach on Easter Sunday morning because that is when most non-church people are likely to come. Sometimes we have done a cantata type of program, and other times we have had a normal service with extra music and a gospel message. We do not have an evening service so that people (including musicians, technology crew, ushers, nursery workers, and pastors) can enjoy the afternoon with family without the pressure of having to return and do a program. It frees up the day for people, and many have expressed appreciation for that. With our new facility we now have adequate seating, so we do not have to have multiple morning services, and can accommodate all of our people and many visitors in one great service.
