You are currently viewing FAQ Page: New Service Times Starting on August 4

As David shared in this video, we are transitioning to new service times starting on Sunday morning August 4, 2024. Please read the FAQs below to best prepare for this upcoming transition.

 

Q: What three service times will be available beginning August 4?

  • Our new service times will be 8:15, 9:45 and 11:30 am.

Q: Why are we changing our times?

  • Primarily, to help rebalance our services and make our current space work as long as possible. On our busiest Sunday mornings it can be a challenge to find a parking spot or a seat at the two later services. Our hope is to make the first service more accessible for families by starting a little later and adding full children’s ministry. On the other hand, our fear is that the middle service will become the most popular and create a problem instead of solve one.

Q: How will this impact our children’s ministry?

  • We will now have full children’s ministry for ages birth to fifth grade at the 8:15 service in addition to full children’s ministry at 9:45 and 11:30!
  • Because we haven’t had full children’s ministry at the first service, it would help us prepare for volunteers if we know about how many and what age kids to expect at that service. If you are interested in coming to the 8:15 service, please let us know HERE. Our SB Kids team will reach out with more information.

Q: How will this impact our youth ministry?

  • On Sunday mornings, middle school students (sixth-eighth grade) will join us for worship in the Sanctuary. At the 9:45 and 11:30 services, middle schoolers will be invited to join our Youth Pastors after worship for their own message in the Youth room.
  • On Sunday nights, students from sixth-twelfth grade will have their own service from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at StoneBridge in the Sanctuary.

Q: Will we still plan to host Sunday Snacks between services?

  • Yes! We still plan to have Sunday Snacks available before the 8:15 am service and between the 9:45 and 11:30 services (from 10:50-11:30.)

 Q: Which service will be live-streamed?

  • We will livestream the 9:45 service.

Q: What will be different about the services?

  • Our services will continue to be 65-70 minutes. We hope to maintain the same opportunities to engage with God and connect with others.

 Q: Are there additional volunteer opportunities?
