I guess it really depends on the situation but also the church size and culture.

In my church, if someone suddenly had a medical emergency, the service would stop. The most qualified people in the service would attend to the person until help arrived, and everyone else would pray. Similarly, if a child went missing, it’s likely that a dozen people or more would join the search. The service would resume a few minutes later when they all returned.

I know this is probably not how things work if your church is the size of a shopping mall, but that’s how things are in my area. So our main communication tool is our mouth, plus a couple of microphones that usually work.

I used to visit a medium sized Quaker church. There were absolutely no secrets in that church, and there was very minimal structure. Then again, I don’t think they had a security team, either.
