The Church at South Las Vegas (Henderson, NV) has created some unconventional worship programming.
Sandwich 1 worship experience between 2 preaching experiences.
In other words, instead of adding a full new service, they simply added a half service. Not only does it let the band play one less service, but it also allows The Church at South Las Vegas to maximize the number of services they can have on Sunday mornings.
They do not use this format for every service. They currently have services on Saturday evenings at 6:00 and Sunday mornings at 8:30, 9:00, 11:00, and 1:00. For Sundays at 8:30, they begin with preaching, and then the 8:30 service stays for the worship at the 9:00 service.
After a month, so far the feedback is positive, and about 90% of the 8:30 service stays for the 9:00 worship.
