First Evangelical adds new service

First Evangelical Free Church will add a second worship service to its Sunday morning schedule beginning Oct. 6. The second service will start at 10:45 a.m. and will be in addition to the worship service that currently begins at 9 a.m. The church is at 3058 10th Ave. N.

Both services will be identical in worship order, music and content and are scheduled to last 75 minutes, said Senior Pastor Scott Hatton.

“We are really excited about adding this second service,” Hatton said. “The sanctuary was getting a little crowded. This allows for more people to attend and be a part of what is happening here. The later service allows some flexibility and may fit better with some people’s schedules.”

Each service will have nursery childcare for children up through age three. There also will be Adult Bible Fellowship classes meeting throughout the building during each service. Sunday School for preschoolers through senior high will be held during the 10:45 a.m. time slot.

“Everyone is welcome to join us for worship,” Hatton said. “We believe that God is doing great things here in our community.”
