Thursday Night Worship
(we also call it TNW)
A typical TNW kicks off with a few minutes of just hanging out and talking with one another as people arrive. Then the worship band starts to play and we spend 20-30 minutes singing and praying in worship to God.
Don't worry about not knowing the songs - there are always new people at TNW and the lyrics are always projected on a screen!
After singing, we usually go over some announcements, the regular attenders give an offering, and then someone gets up to speak for about 30 minutes. This is usually one of the staff pastors, but sometimes its someone from another Chi Alpha or a strategical local church partner.
After the speaker finishes, we usually spend a brief time in prayer. When the service finishes up, people often go to The Bridge or Starbucks afterwards to hang out.
