The Washington family just can't get to church on time.


The Washington family always seems to have trouble getting to church on time! So much is done at the very last minute and something always tends to go wrong. But this Sunday will be different...or so Elaine thinks...

Today, Tamika is trying to invite some new friends that she can receive the extra points and be at the top in her Sunday school. Marvin is trying to remember his Bible verse, but he has gum stuck in his hair! Ed tries to cut the gum out and ends up putting a bald spot in Marvin’s hair, not to mention a dent that according to Tamika is the size of a swimming pool.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Washington is hard at work cooking the lunch for after church the pastor and his wife. Just when the chaos is reaching its peak, Bart Rathbone comes by in need of a shower. Bart only adds to the madness as the time to leave quickly approaches.

Just when all seems lost, Elaine reveals that she set the clocks ahead 10 minutes last night. Ed reveals that he set the clocks ahead 15 more minutes. They all breathe a sigh of relief...until Bart reveals that he sets their clocks back to the correct time! They race to the church parking lot and get there only to see no cars in the parking lot! Did they miss church? They run into Tom Riley and he tells them that they forgot to set their clocks back an hour. Tom persuades the family to join him for prayer, to prepare for worship. The Washingtons realize that they were losing focus of what Sunday and going to church was all about.
