TWO SERVICES – WHAT TO EXPECT?
Rev City Church is growing! To help us reach & connect more people to Jesus, we are so excited to now offer two Sunday services! Below are some questions and answers to bring clarity to changes during this exciting season:
Tell me more about two services. How will Sunday feel different?
We formerly offered one service at Rev City Church that began at 10:00 AM and typically released around 11:30 AM. We now offer two identical Sunday services beginning at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM with a stronger focus on services lasting around 1 hour and 20 minutes. There will inevitably be times when services run a bit longer due to extended ministry, however, our staff is working on intentional ways to streamline our two services.
Do we have enough people in our church for two services?
Yes, and in fact, we may even be a bit behind the curve on launching two services. Our church parking lot and children’s ministry classrooms have frequently been at maximum capacity over the last several months. We also desire to be very evangelistic at Rev City Church. A second service creates more space and opportunity for us to reach and connect more individuals and families to Jesus!
Are the services the same length?
Yes, the 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM service are planned as identical services. However, even with the same songs, announcements and sermon, each service will often have it’s own unique “flow” and “feel”. Our target time for both services is around one hour and twenty minutes.
If we “serve one, attend one”, what do we do between the services? Where do our kids go?
You’ll be surprised at how quickly time will fly! Between a bathroom break, refreshing your cup of coffee in our newly renovated Rev City Cafe and connecting with your Dream Team leader, it will be service time before you know it. For families attending both services, parents have the option to pick up their child(ren) in between services OR leave them in their classrooms. Rev City Kids will have team members in classrooms at all times between services. Please keep in mind that renovations include a secure children’s hallway & check-in system. Parents are required to securely check their child in and out at all times, so please allow time for that process if you choose to take your child(ren) out between services.
Won’t my kids get bored doing the same thing twice?
Our Rev City Kids team is working on creative strategies to get ahead of this! For children that attend two services, they may be offered special leadership “roles” in their classroom. From being a “Jr. Teacher” to “Memory Verse Leader” or even “Worship Song Helper”, our heart is for kids to have fun and feel engaged during both services. Also, keep in mind that children will have a room filled with new friends during each service! Plus, the children’s wing is being newly renovated with all new equipment, games and activities that will keep kids asking to stay twice!
Will it be crowded between the services?
Our target is for the 9:00 AM service to release around 10:20 AM with a parking lot team assigned to assist guiding and directing traffic. Current renovations include an extended covered entryway, expanded foyer area and additional doorways at our primary entrance to accommodate a greater number of guests.
I want to serve one service and attend one service! How do I sign up?
Awesome! Thank you for partnering with us during this exciting season! Jesus said “the greatest among you will serve” (Matthew 23:11) and at Rev City, we believe that servant leadership is the heartbeat of the local church. From helping in Rev City Kids to Greeters, Ushers, Coffee & Donut, Security and Parking Lot Teams – there is a place for YOU to step up on Sunday mornings and help strongly launch our second service.
