Announcements in Worship: Help Us Make Them Shorter

Announcements in Worship: Help Us Make Them Shorter

Old First is a busy congregation; there’s so much going on that we all can’t possibly keep on top of what everyone else is up to. And our Sunday morning worship service is the only time during the week when the whole community gathers. So it’s natural that we like to use that time to inform one another of all the goings-on.

But we’ve also heard that lengthy announcements at the beginning of worship distracts from our spiritual focus.

So we’re going to make an effort shorten the time we spend on announcements during worship each week. If you have an announcement to share in worship, please notify Mindy in the church office either by email or by phone by Friday afternoon of the Sunday prior. Thank you for your cooperation!
