When two speeches are given each evening, each speech is approximately 30 to 35 minutes in length. It is suggested that there be but one beginning hymn and a prayer before the first speech, then a hymn between the two speeches, and finally, a closing hymn and prayer after the second speech. The total amount of time consumed with this arrangement is generally not more than one hour and thirty minutes.

[1]Sunday through Wednesday program is generally available only during summer months of June, July and August, except by special arrangements.

[2]Many congregations prefer beginning on Friday evening, and then having a gathering on Saturday morning or afternoon, as well as Saturday evening. My personal preference is to schedule a total of ten speeches from Friday through Sunday. A question and answer period could be scheduled after the final message, if desired. However, congregations should decide what schedule and program best suits their own preferences.
