How long is the service?
We tried a church a while ago that we liked and have gone a few times since. What we don't like about it is the service is 1 1/2 hours long. The pastor is really long winded. He's pretty interesting and keeps your attention fairly well, but it's hard to sit there for a full hour and listen to him talk. All of the other churches we've tried the service is about an hour.
I know it's horrible, but I feel like it might be a deal breaker in our church search. Maybe it would be different if we were more involved and knew more people there? I don't know. It's so awkward trying new church.
