For years now, our youth group has met on Sunday evenings. Sunday evenings seem to compete with fewer extracurricular activities. But recently, it seems that Sundays are just as busy as any other day. In fact, if a youth attends Sunday School, Church, and Sunday evening youth group they can spend almost the entire day at church.
So this year, we’re going to try something new: Wednesday Night Live. For better or worse, we’re going to see how it works to meet on Wednesday evening. But hopefully, it won’t be just us meeting on Wednesday night. I really believe that one of the defining factors of a strong church is what happens between one Sunday morning and the next. In an effort to get people to church during mid-week we’re encouraging the small groups, music groups, younger children, and older adults to all consider meeting on Wednesday evening. From 6:00-6:30, we’ll all share a meal. Then from 6:30-8:00 everyone, representing all age groups, will go to their particular activity, event, or group.
We’ll see how this all works. When I was growing up, it seemed that Wednesdays were church nights. But then, so were Sundays.
Anyone else planning to meet during the week?
