As many of you know we have been discussing for sometime the need to go too a second worship service. We discussed many scenarios and options as it related to adding a second worship service. In the end, the staff agreed that the best option for Eastside at this time would be to offer two worship services back-to-back on Sunday mornings. The two service times are: 9:30 am and 11:00 am starting September 9, 2012. There are several reasons why we need a second worship service and why we provided them back-to-back. Here are a couple:
1. Provide more choices for people on Sunday mornings (i.e. worship/small group, small group/worship or worship/serving)
2. Glorify God
3. Provide more opportunities for more people to get involved in ministry here at Eastside.
4. Better steward of the resources which God has blessed us with.
5. Provide open seats for people at the 11:00 am worship service.
We are looking for about 100 people to attend worship at the 9:30 am hour. We will be offering a full programing at both worship services for birth thru high school. Please notify one of the staff members at Eastside if you would be willing to attend the 9:30 am worship service.
Please be in prayer as we move forward with this transition. We believe that we can grow by over 150 people this fall with the addition of this worship service. Start inviting people now to attend worship with you.
I hope to see you Sunday,
BTW, if you are not serving NOW you can attend worship one hour and serve the next. If you are interesting in serving at Eastside please contact Carla Perry at 893-4757 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
