Weekend Update


Due to the crowds that have been coming of late—members and regular attenders need to shift over to one of the less slammed services. Relief will be here (at least for a little while) in exactly one month as the doors to the larger worship building open up. For now, however, the crowds are turning some first time guests away. I received several e-mails this past week about the crowds and the frustration getting checked in and so forth. The reason is that we are not only experiencing the September back to school surge, but also another wave right with it in anticipation of the new building.

Despite surges and buildings, I believe God sends each and every person our way. No one is ever at Southbrook by accident. So lets all be good stewards of the people we are honored to minister to and make their first visits warm and inviting. So, again, here are the specifics so you can make a decision:

The Following Services Have (some) Room

  • the Saturday Evening 6:30
  • the Sunday 11:30 am Video Cafe
  • the Monroe Campus (Sundays at 10:00 am)

The Following Services Are Usually Full

  • the 10 am Sunday Service in the Main
  • the 10 am Sunday Service in the Video Cafe
  • the 11:30  am Sunday Service in the Main

Other News: Once again, Southbrook’s praise and worship is being featured on 91.9! We keep inching our way toward the final (although each time we win there seems to be another “final” we have to go through  ). Here is what we need now…
