Putting Your Service Where Your Mouth Is

This past Sunday, Lakepoint Church moved it’s Sunday Service to a parade parking lot.  It was pretty much the only way for us as a church body to participate in the parade.  Attendance was a little lighter, offering was non-existent, and I don’t even want to know if we had any first time guests at our regular location!  Even so, I think it was the right thing to do.  We talk so much about being a church for everyday life and everyday relationships, that I feel we just couldn’t hide inside our building while a community parade was going on during Sunday morning service times.

When should you mess with your Sunday service.  This is the third time we’ve done it this year.  We moved our baptism service to an alternative location in June, and back in March we replaced our Sunday Service by hosting a food-packing service project with Generosity Feeds.  

Is it okay to move your service to where your mission is, or do you need some staple consistency from which the creativity flows elsewhere?
