3. Eat lunch, then meet again earlier in the afternoon

The Walnut Street Church of Christ in Cary, N.C., replaced its Sunday night assembly with 2:30 p.m. services twice a month. (Small groups meet on alternate weeks.)

Member Dennis Billingsley reported:

This has worked extremely well, and actually, our elders haven’t considered going back to the Sunday night service.

The Concord Church of Christ in New Hampshire began practicing a weekly “fellowship luncheon” tradition decades ago, said Park Linscomb, minister for the Manchester Church of Christ in that state.

This practice is not unique in New England, said Linscomb, one of the region’s longest-tenured preachers.

Linscomb explained:

The reason was that in New England, there were many Christians who needed to travel 45 minutes or more to church. Forty-five minutes one-way twice a day become three hours on the road every Sunday.

4. Enjoy a night of rest.
