"IS OAKBROOK OK?"
Recently, some of our staff members have been hearing this question because of the number of empty seats available at our weekend experiences. The answer is most assuredly, "Yes!" Our church is growing and thriving. In the past few weeks, several people have taken next steps:
WHY GO TO ONE SERVICE?
Most church experts will tell you that once a service reaches about 80% capacity, it's time to make room for more people by creating another service time. Our weekend experience is around that capacity, but we've found that adding an additional service didn't cause us to grow like we expected. There are several things at play to cause that, including the nationwide trend that people simply don't come to church as consistently as they used to. In order to create the best experience possible on the weekend, we've decided to go to a one service format so our whole church can gather together.
JOIN US SUNDAYS AT 10 a.m.
We're switching to one service at 10 a.m. starting this week.
Please help us spread the word! If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. DON'T FORGET DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME!
Nov. 2 is also the start of Daylight Saving Time. Your phone should take care of the time change for you, but if you're still using an "old-school" alarm clock, don't forget to set it back an hour on Saturday night!
