A typical Amish church service is done in the homes of the families in the Amish community. Most of the Missouri Amish normally have some type of service on every Sunday. Some of the communities have a major church service with everyone in the church district attending. When it is not a normal church Sunday, the families will still conduct their own service in their homes with some extended family or neighbors attending. The smaller communities are able to have everyone attend, but the large communities are broken up into multiple church districts. There will be a Preacher for each one.
Each service will be held in a different home each Sunday Service. One of members of the Church District will be appointed to drive the bench wagon to the church services. This is a very important responsibility. Could you imagine over a 150 adults and children coming over to your house for church? These bench legs are of a folding type without backs. They are designed to be light weight and not built for a lot of comfort in my opinion. They set up these benches throughout the house. Yes, they will use every room. They even use the kitchen, but leave some room so that they can have a light meal at the end of service. We will talk about that next week.
