My friends use to make fun of me for going to a "white church" growing up. But I always got the last laugh cause i was home after a 45 minute service playing video games while they were just getting started
This video is stupid. It's more about the religion because some _____ churches tend to be longer while others tend to be shorter. I noticed Catholic is the shortest I've been excluding holidays. Baptist church seems to be an all day event (I was in one for at least 4 hours)
WHERE?! They both go on for HOURS...I fall asleep and everything...
these are Protestant churches, like Presbyterian and all that...
I could not even think about Mass...during school, if the Priest kept a homily nice and easygoing, it felt and was short...
If not? Jesus lord...
When I went to a "black church" it was still longer than an hour, but the music they played made me stay awake, so that's a plus.
We have our two - one's a "white' and the other is a "black" church...depending on what mood my mother's in...*shrugs* lol!
my mom goes to a white church, 5 songs, offerings, preach and you out in time for lunch
Thats in western maryland
our "Black" home church back in baltimore - prayer, meet and greet new visitors, 15 songs(it felt like), announcements, preach, another preach preach, dance performance, choir, offerings, more songs, final prayer...I swear I wanted to pack a bag lunch.
The DIVA has arrived.

I attend a Baptist church. The average service is 1 to 2 hours. The only time it is longer than that is on first Sunday of each month due to taking communion. With that it is just an extra 15 minutes if that. My pastor lately has been moving to 1 hour service length. I call it the express service.
Not trying = 100% failure
JESUS is the ONLY ONE who can GIVE ME LIFE, and HE is also the ONLY ONE who can tell me to BOW DOWN!
I grew up in a United Methodist church and we were know for an hour and 30 minute service. Over that we start to leave the church. When a pastor would come to visit our pastor would ask if we would be nice and not just walk out after an hour 30. I go to a mixed church and it is 2 hours and it moves.
My family was visiting a church for some reason. It was my grandmother, me, mom, dad, aunt, uncle. Well after the two hour mark my Grandmother looked at us and said, I'm hungry, you ready, this service is very long. Well, when she said it the church was somewhat quite, so many people heard her. She gave no fucks and picked up her purse and walked out. LOL!!
If you don't start on time, you will hear from her.
I saw that video last week and it wasn't funny to me. But I go to COGIC church and that can be an all day affair. Sunday school from 10 to 1130. Service starts at 1130 and is usually over by 130 or 2. And 1st Sunday goes a little later because of communion. Then 2nd Sunday we have district meetings which don't start until 4 and are usually done by 6. Then if ou pastor has been asked to speak he wants everyone to go.
I refuse to spend all that time in church. The church mothers give me the side eye when I don't go to the extra stuff but oh well.
