Thank you, Bethel Fergus Falls, for your input over the last several weeks as Bethel leadership decided how to move ahead in adding a third worship service. The following are the new worship times.
Sunday morning at Bethel Fergus Falls starting December 2nd:
- Worship: 8:00, 9:15 & 10:30 AM
- Sunday School: 9:15 & 10:30 AM
This fall, Bethel Fergus Falls moved to two worship services (formerly three) and two Sunday School hours (formerly one), in attempt to more evenly distribute the number of people in our parking lot and building on Sunday mornings. The two Sunday School hours option is going very well. While the 9:00 and 10:30 AM worship times are well received, we have found that the sanctuary and foyer are very crowded, during and between the two worship services. It’s not a welcoming environment for worship.
Through these surveys, the leadership learned these three things:
- We need a third worship service.
- The best time to offer it is Sunday morning.
- The worship service we add should be a modern service.
The leadership also followed up to get a better idea of the times and order of the services. Your input was valuable as leadership made a decision regarding Sunday morning worship in Fergus Falls.
Please keep in mind that…
- We will continue to offer Sunday School (for adults and children) at the later two times.
- Each worship service/Sunday School class would be 50 minutes, allowing for 25 minutes in between each.
