Has your church ever tried to add a second weekend worship service, only to have it flame out? This was the question that was asked on a small church pastors’ discussion board recently.
Several of the responses were, understandably, along these two lines:
- “That’s a ‘problem’ I’d love to have.”
- “Going to two services killed our momentum. Never again.”
So, yes, needing to add a service is a ‘problem’ many churches would love to face, but if you don’t do it well, it can hurt more than it helps. So let me share with you how our church did it without killing our momentum.
