I LOVE THE FORUM...you are excellent resources. So my newest one is can everyone tell me what your order of service is? Ours is currently....
Pastor Greets and Prays
Bridge of that first song or chorus
Song (fast or transition song)
2 or 3 Worship songs then just some chords and worship time
Then we get done after what is typically a very worshipful time with the Holy Spirit and I say something like..All God's People say amen everyone amen's and we're into ok shake hands etc. then offering and a sermon. We have an altar call ever Sunday so we have a little more worship at the end.
My question is we've mixed it up a little by having our fast songs, then offering and other business then our slow worship time and that flows into a message. I just dislike the current transition and wonder what you guys all do. God Bless you all for your service!!
