Last night, the Admin Council voted unanimously to change the worship time on Sunday mornings to one service at 9:30 am starting November 8th. Sunday School will officially begin at 10:45 am after church, but some classes may choose to meet before church or at a different time.
This decision was not made lightly, nor without consideration. All the calls that Tim Beaty received were discussed in confidence. Ultimately, it was decided that we as a church should meet together at one time.
We will continue with two service for the next two Sundays – October 25th and November 1st. November 1st will be daylight savings time so please remember to fall back on that date. Communion will also be celebrated on the 1st. We will wait and celebrate All Saints Day on November 8th on our first worship service at the new time and as one congregation together.
We hope these changes will create new opportunities rather than taking away aspects of our worship life. We know that not everyone will be happy – neither at the early or the late service. That is usually a consequence of a good compromise. We do appreciate those that shared their concerns but ultimately shared that they would still be there at 9:30 am. For anyone who cannot make it to church at 9:30 am we will continue to record our services and they can be seen either on the church website, Facebook or YouTube.
Please share this news with anyone you know who might not receive email or be able to come to church during this time. And invite those that might not be going to church anywhere to be with us either starting November 8th or starting this Sunday!
Midway UMC is a wonderful church filled with loving people – no matter what time we meet. We should be proud of what God has done through the years in this place, and look forward to what God will do in the days to come.
