Ever wondered what it would be like to lead a worship service? Have a message for the congregation that is burning inside you? Want to learn to design a worship service or write a sermon? Have some great ideas about innovative worship?
You are invited to join Rev. Lee Anne and Penny Reid (in person in our spacious sanctuary) as they explore ways to involve congregants in worship design and leadership. This highly interactive discussion-based learning experience will provide you with the theoretical understanding and theological grounding for the role of worship associate, as well as the role that each element in a worship service plays in the overall worship experience.
Rev. Lee Anne will provide a theological and philosophical grounding for the liturgical design of a worship service. Penny Reid will provide guidance for the responsibilities of a worship associate when (1) Rev. Lee Anne is preaching, (2) when guest preachers are preaching, and (3) on special collection Sundays. This orientation and discussion is the prerequisite for an upcoming workshop in sermon preparation and worship design.
