Exciting Days at EWC

These are exciting days at Edgerton Wesleyan Church. Our worship attendance has grown to the point where we are pushing up against the 80% capacity barrier of our sanctuary. Sunday School is near capacity. There are some Sundays when people have to park in the yard because the parking lot is full. Exciting!

Today I shared with the church the option of going to two worship services. We are currently exploring two different Sunday morning formats as well as a Saturday night service. The congregation received the information very well today. The church board and I have been working on this for a few months, and a focus group we brought in has endorsed the overall concept. Now we have to get a feel for which format would best serve this congregation / community.

Good days!

  1. Those are always the best kinds of decisions and problems to have in a congregation. I'm writing this much later than you wrote it, but I am reminded of Steve McVey from Kansas. His thoughts on the make up of congregations was very interesting. Just a thought!

  2. Ray, I absolutely agree with you on McVey's thoughts. The mindset differences between rural and suburban people are different, but you can grow a church anywhere people want to do God's will.
