Fall Schedule FAQ

HOW DOES CHANGING THE SCHEDULE BENEFIT OUR CHURCH?

Because we are in the top 2% of Southern Baptist Churches in America, God has given us a wonderful problem to solve. We literally have people turning away from our sanctuary and heading back to their cars because there is nowhere for them to sit in the Second Service. By providing two viable worship environments, with some new flavors, we believe we can alleviate some of the pressure in our Second Service. With the Second Service moving down to the 10:30 time slot this will allow a 30 minute buffer between the two services. This will also allow for more time to fellowship, get coffee, etc between services. But most importantly we want to provide an exceptional worship experience for our children (we will begin a Children’s Worship Experience that will coincide with both of our Adult Worship Experiences in a different room on our campus that is tailored and designed for kids). We believe that this will better reach the hearts and souls of not only the children of TEAM FBC, but the larger majority children of our community.

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS?

The ONLY change to your Sunday School class is the new start time of 10:30 versus 10:00. This will allow you more time to fellowship, catch up with friends, get coffee, but more importantly, it will allow more time for you and your class to connect and dig deeper in the Word.

IF I SERVE DURING THE 9:00 CHILDREN’S WORSHIP EXPERIENCE AND ATTEND THE 10:30 ADULT WORSHIP SERVICE, WHAT WILL MY KIDS DO WHILE I AM ATTENDING THE ADULT WORSHIP SERVICE AT 10:30?

• Nursery-Kindergarten Extended stay childcare is available for both services
• Kindergarten – 5th Grade: There are a few options:
o Your children can attend Children’s Worship Experience during both service times (9:00 & 10:30)
o Your children can attend Children’s Worship Experience at 9:00 and then accompany you to your worship service at 10:30
• 6th Grade – High School: There are a few options:
o Pick the Service Time of your choosing (9:00 or 10:30) and bring a friend.
o Our plan for our students outside of the worship hour of their choice is to engage them in ministry alongside our adult volunteers in providing the best Children’s Worship Environments and Experience in town.

WHAT ARE THE NEW WORSHIP SERVICE TIMES?

• 9:00 TRADITIONAL WORSHIP SERVICES (WITH NEW FLAVORS) FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN’S WORSHIP EXPERIENCE (KINDERGARTEN – 5th GRADE)
• 10:30 MODERN WORSHIP SERVICES FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN’S WORSHIP EXPERIENCE (KINDERGARTEN – 5th GRADE)

WHERE IS THE CHILDREN’S WORSHIP EXPERIENCE LOCATED?

Children’s Worship Experience will be located in the Theater (Old Sanctuary at both the 9:00 & 10:30 hours – beginning October 14th).

WHAT IS AVAILABLE FOR MY MIDDLE SCHOOLER OR HIGH SCHOOLER?

Sunday Mornings, our plan is for them to come along side our Children’s Worship leaders or Childcare volunteers and give of their time and serve. They will be partnered with an adult leader and mentored on how to serve, lead others, and have a servant’s heart; all the while learning and teaching God’s Word.
Sunday Evenings our Youth are invited and will be engaged in gathering together in their Small Group BELONG Environment. This gives them more adequate time to connect with each other and dig deeper in God’s Word.

WHEN IS KIDSTUF?

Kidstuf will still take place the first Sunday of the month. The new time for Kidstuf will be 9:00 am.

WHEN IS THE KICKOFF DATE FOR THESE EVENTS?

WORSHIP SERVICE TIME CHANGES: SEPTEMER 9TH – 9:00 & 10:30
CHILDREN’S WORSHIP EXPERIENCE: OCTOBER 14th – 9:00 & 10:30 (This is due to the wisdom given by our Children’s workers that we need more time to adequately prepare for an unforgettable Children’s Worship Experience, where kids can’t wait to come back next week)

HOW CAN I PRAY?

Most importantly we want to pray that we are following God’s will. Also, as you can image, there is a lot of planning, work, need for volunteers, workers, servers, teachers, and leaders needed to make this all work properly. Pray for knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Pray for all of our hearts at Team FBC, that we will remember the purpose for which we are here. That is to reach people with the Gospel. This often requires sacrifice and change. Pray for a smooth transition keeping this in mind. Lastly, Pray for the future hearts of those within our community that are not amongst us yet, that will be changed by God’ Word.
