Three Sunday Worship Service - Top 10 FAQs

 

Q1:  Why are we increasing our number of Sunday Worship Service offerings to three?

A1:  The main reason is that we have reached our seating capacity for our 10:45 a.m. Worship Service.  Since the top of the year, we have seen 50-100+ people consistently sitting in the overflow seating area during our 10:45 a.m. Worship Service.  These numbers were steady and were not impacted by the holidays or our MTSU student attendance.  After much prayer, it was evident that we could no longer continue to “hope” that congregants would continue to come without making proper space for them.  We also believe that there are souls in our area that need to meet Jesus Christ.  They may visit and join FBC now that there is space for them.

 

Q2:  What is the impact on Sunday School?

A2:  Sunday School is held each Sunday in the Fellowship Hall at 9:20 a.m.  Beginning April 8th, Sunday School will start at 9:30 a.m. and will end at 10:30 a.m.  The current class held in the Sanctuary’s Cry Room will need to be relocated to the Ministry Media room.  In addition, the 9:45 a.m. Worship Service should only compliment Sunday School allowing more families an option to bring their youth to Sunday School while they either attend or serve others during our the worship service.

 

Q3:  How will the new service times impact Nursery and Children’s Church?

A3:  Starting April 8th, the Nursery (currently open every Sunday at 10:30 a.m.) will open at 11:15 a.m.  The Children’s Church will continue to open on 2nd and 4th Sundays and the new time will be 11:15 a.m.  NOTE:  The Nursery Team is looking at ways to expand nursery support services to the 9:45 a.m. worship service while the Youth Ministry is going through a total ministry revamp.  More information to come!

 

Q4:  Will all of the services have the same format?

A4:  No.  Due to the time constraints, the 8:00 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. Worship Services will follow the same order of service.  These services will also feature fewer live announcements and presentations.

 

Q5:  Which services will be live streamed?

A5:  The 8:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Worship Services will be live streamed from our website (www.fbcmurfreesboro.org/live).

 

Q6:  How did we decide the new service times?

A6:  First and foremost, prayer.  In addition, some key players that support our services were consulted.  Several other factors were considered to include the lack of reception to a Sunday afternoon and Saturday Worship Service in the past and the serving requirements of the volunteers.  We also considered that the Sunday School could now be utilized as an additional discipleship space for the youth of the parents/guardians desiring to attend or serve during the 9:45 a.m. Worship Service.

 

Q7:  How will this impact Baby Dedications?  

A7:  Special presentations, such as Baby Dedications, will be scheduled at the 11:30 a.m. Worship Service only.

 

Q8:  What time will Baptismal Service take place?

A8:  Currently, we hold Baptismal Service on the 3rd Sunday Weekend.  Candidates have the option of being baptized on Saturday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. or on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.  The Saturday time will not change; but the Sunday Baptismal Service will kick off at 11:15 a.m. beginning in April 2018.

 

Q9:  How will this impact parking and will there be shuttle service for each worship service?

A9:  We anticipate full parking lots and street parking at each Worship Service.  Our Transportation Ministry will continue to offer off-site shuttle service support to FBC from the Dirt Cheap and Habitat for Humanity Restore parking lots (off Mercury Blvd.) at each service.

 

Q10:  Are we still looking for a new church building?

A10:  Yes, our church expansion team is still seeking suitable property for our new church location.
