We, like many other churches across our nation will be lifting our service on Sunday Evening, February 1st. We will still be gathering at the church, however, for a Super Bowl party! All my life I remember this being one of those “conversations” that came up each year about whether evening service would be canceled due to the “Big Game”, and my first few years in youth ministry I remember the “danger” of bringing this “conversation” into staff meeting with the question of possibility. I even remember at least one year having to run from our 6PM service immediately over to the Super Bowl party!
I’m thankful that here at Armbrust we’ve already lifted our service and are in the process of planning a great party.
I loved what Newspring in Anderson, SC did to promote their NO PM SERVICE on February 1st –

One day I will be this creative!
So what’s the deal at YOUR church? Is canceling service for the Super Bowl a “taboo” in your area? Is it a no-brainer?
