The majority of churches have three elements in a service - worship, *hosting and a message. These three elements go by different names like singing, announcements and preaching. And sometimes there are additional unique elements like baptism, communion and budget votes in a service. But generally speaking the typical American church service consists of these three elements.
*Hosting includes meeting & greet, offering, announcements & dismissal

Service 69 minutes
Worship 22.3 minutes
Hosting 6 minutes
Message 40.7 minutes
Below is a breakdown of each church.
