Sunday night services!!!!!

Okay I just found out some very disturbing news! I am trying to get my life straight and live for Christ. To do that, I need to be in fellowship with other Christians. Last Sunday when I returned home from my ministry weekend, I wanted to go to church to get fed (spiritually not physically) well there was no one there. Not letting that deter me, I went down the road to the Presbyterian Church. It was the first church I came to.

While I had a free moment to think about it today on lunch, I called the FBC office to ask about the reason behind there not being a service on Sunday night. I was told that at the moment there are no services on Sunday night and would probably not be any. I was just shocked! I instantly asked "Why not?" I was told there was not a large enough interest in it!!! Shocked again! The whole reason (or I assumed) for building a new larger building was to bring more people in. Please tell me how we are going to do that if we do not have a Sunday Service for them to come to? The Sunday night service is a casual atmosphere for people to come be themselves and hear about Christ!!! As if you can tell I am very very upset by this. I wish I knew what to do.

Part of me wants to fight this! Wants to go out and demand they bring back the service and invite everyone even strangers to come. The other part of me says that I can't do that by myself. Could this be something that God is calling me to do? Or is this obstacle put in my way to find another church? I don't know what to do. I really want to go down and talk to the pastor about this but the other part of me is scared. Am I really the one for this job? How do I relay the importance of this to others?


  1. Don't be too hard on FBC. Almost every Baptist church is starting to cut out Sunday night services. HOWEVER; most churches (ours is one) are having small groups instead. That may be something you could suggest to someone at your church.

  2. I have never heard of this. I can actually see cutting out mid-week services before I can understand cutting out Sunday evening services. Hate to see that people are starting to think that one-two hours on Sunday morning is all the time they have to give to worship. wow. shocking.

  3. We use to have to service type things on sunday night. The adults would have small home groups and then the youth & college would have a Worship service. I think that I should be hard on them because it's not right. We need the worship time more now than ever in this world that we live in.
