Have you heard? The Little Church on the Prairie will be having combined worship services on first Sundays of every month!
Here are some reasons why the Little Church on the Prairie will be having a combined worship service on communion Sundays.
First, one of the things people have said about the two services is that we rarely get an opportunity to get to know one another. Having two services is like having two churches.
We agree. So we are planning on worshiping corporately as one church at least once a month.
Second, the sacraments should be celebrated together. Every time we take communion and baptize, we celebrate our oneness in Christ. And since we’re celebrating our unity, what better way to celebrate the Lord’s Supper and baptism than doing it as one church.
The sacraments ought to be celebrated together. So we are.
Thirdly, whenever officers are elected, they are installed and ordained for the whole congregation. We’ve been installing and ordaining our officers at one service while saying something like, “In the earlier service we installed and ordained…”
We don’t want to do that anymore.
Our elected officers are installed and ordained for our entire congregation. Our entire congregation should celebrate our officers together. So we are.
Finally, until recently, we’ve been receiving new members at their respective services. We believe receiving new members is one of the greatest joys of our church. We believe we ought to welcome and celebrate new members together. So we are.
Have you heard? The Little Church on the Prairie will be having combined worship services on first Sundays of every month!!!
Let’s worship and celebrate together.
