Ideas for alternative services?

Because we realize that not everyone is able to make a Sunday 11:00AM service, or that not everyone is comfortable in that environment – or heck, that there are tons of people that are totally BORED just mentioning church – we’re toying with the idea of offering get-togethers (not necessarily “worship services) at a different time, with a different focus than a traditional service.

So I turn to you, loyal readers (or random folks that just happen to stumble upon us on the internet), for some ideas.

Would a more contemporary, non-traditional service appeal to you?
If so, what kinds of things would you like to do or see there? Wii night? A free supper followed by movies? A time to share what’s going on in your life with others and possibly find support/ideas/suggestions to help? Contemporary music? Live music performances? Open mic nights? More food?

We’re open to suggestions – please bring ’em on! We’re hoping to start something in June or earlier.

All the best,
Amy B.

  1. Oh wow, Suzy! What a great site, and what awesome ideas! And what a dunderhead I am for not checking this out sooner! Thanks so much for sharing. I will pass on your site’s address to our small group planners here.

    God bless,
    Amy

  2. Not sure if this is still relevant…but if you’re looking for ideas for alternative services, then I have quite a few on my blog as I lead a cafe style service once a month and usually post about my ideas.
    Blessings,
    Suzy
