New Service Times 

Beginning March 12th, we will have new service times at burlpres! 

Modern | 9a
Classic | 10:30a
Session approved this decision.

This decision comes from Session based on feedback from the 2022 Congregational Survey, which told us that the majority of worshipers prefer these new times.

 

Impact on young families.

The majority of young families prefer modern worship earlier in the morning.  Starting March 12th, we will have two identical programs for kids at 9:00 and 10:30am.

Impact on the Classic congregation.

The majority of older people prefer classic worship later in the morning.

New worship times.

The majority of church-goers want to worship to begin between 9 and 10am. We are making this decision with that in mind.

Mandarin service time will change.
The service time for the Mandarin congregation will change to 10:30 am starting March 12th.  
A beautiful challenge.

Our church has 2 very meaningful, very different styles of worship, and that is rare for a church our size. Most churches only have one style of worship, so they can have that one service as many times as they need to on a Sunday morning. Our challenge is making the choice based on the majority of two different styles of worshipper (classic and modern).

An opportunity to connect.

Everyone wants to be connected to each other. The one resounding thing we heard from the survey is that you want to have relationship with the people who go to the other worship service. By moving services within a half hour of one another, it will give you a chance to mingle with each other over coffee on the patio and in the Lobby as you come and go.
