A Restful Lord's Day

Kauai Reformation Church has both of their Lord's Day worship services in the morning.  The first service is at 9:30 a.m., followed by a time of refreshments, and then the second service is at 11:00 a.m.  They do this for 2 primary reasons:  (1) Some of the people in the church drive quite a distance (approximately 1 hour to get to church); (2) The facility that they rent gives them that block of time.  It feels a little funny to have both services over by noon, but it does allow for a lot of afternoon and evening rest time.  Today after church we came back to the condo for some lunch and then went to the pool for awhile.  And then we went to the home of one of the families in the church for a nice dinner.  Pictured here is the sunset from tonight.

(I hope some others leave comments.)

I have a question, though: How do the little children handle the extended church time?

Hi Joyce,

There are a number of small children in the church, and for the most part, they seem to handle the back-to-back services quite well. The 2nd service is not that long, though. There is a call to worship, 2 songs, the sermon, and then the benediction. So the first service is about an hour...and then the second service is about 40-45 minutes. These are people who are very hungry for the Reformed faith.
