Dear 100 Hour Board,
Does anybody like afternoon church?
I do. I sleep in really late as it is, so it's nice to not have to wake up early, but that's just me.
I'm physically incapable of sleeping in past 7 or 8 in the morning unless I'm severely sleep deprived. So when I have church in the afternoon, I still end up waking up early, but I have a hard time finding things to do until after church.
On the other hand, my current calling has me in meetings starting at 10am anyway, so it doesn't make a huge difference.
I consider Sunday afternoon naps to be sacred, so anything that disrupts me is basically sacrilegious.
Yes. I am very much not a morning person. I do not function cognitively until about noon regardless of the day.
Afternoon church is the only way to have church and NOT HAVE TO SKIP LUNCH. So that's nice.
I always seem to find myself in callings that require me to go to meetings before Church. Because of this, I'm not such a fan of 9 AM church, because that means I have to get up super early in order to make it to 7 AM meetings and things. Then again, with how we have things set up now, I'm sometimes headed to church at 8:00 AM and then not getting home until around 6:00 PM, which is also not very fun at all (especially if I forget to bring food to eat in the middle).
Because of this, I have always maintained that 11:00 AM is the perfect time for church. It's enough time to sleep in, even with pre-church meetings, and yet you still get a big, wonderful afternoon to do home teaching in or just relax if you can. So, I'm mostly in favor of late morning/early afternoon church.
