Penn Forest Worship Center will offer two different styles of worship services beginning Nov. 3.
According to a news release from the church, “We understand that people enjoy worshiping differently and this is just another way that we are striving to encourage people to come to church and quit making excuses.”
- 9:30 a.m. – This will be a blended traditional service. The sermon will be the same as the later service but the music will be toned down and will include a mixture of mostly older songs along with one or two newer ones.
- 11:00 a.m. – This will be a blended contemporary service. The worship music will use the full band and will include a mixture of mostly newer songs along with one or two older ones.
According to the new release, the congregation chose the launch for Nov. 3 because it’s it’s the day that everyone turns their clocks back one hour and gets an extra hour of sleep: “It is No Excuse Sunday! We will have steel helmets for those who say ‘The roof would cave in if I ever came to church.’ We will have doctors and nurses in attendance for those who plan to be sick. We will also have Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies for those who have never seen the church without them. We will have earplugs for those who say the music (or preacher) is to loud. We will have cots for those who like to sleep in.”
In addition, Wilburn & Wilburn will be in concert at the church that day. The father-son duo combine a foundation of “old school” with a flare of youthful presence to bring the message of Christ in song.
Sunday School Connect and Grow groups continue to meet Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
Everyone is welcome. Penn Forest Worship Center is located at 3735 Chaparral Drive in Roanoke, across from Cave Spring High School. For more information check www.pfwc.net or call 540-772-9482.
