Arriving 15 minutes before worship starts has many advantages; you have time to visit with friends, you can grab a second cup of coffee, you can secure your favorite pew.  Now there is another, perhaps more important reason to be in the Sanctuary 15 minutes before the service begins.  There are many event details and important information that are presented as a video on the projectors before service.
