The best worship planning calendar for pastors, choir directors, church secretaries, altar guild members, lay liturgists and readers, and everyone who is active in planning worship. Designate a planning calendar for each worship experience you offer: traditional, contemporary, seeker, blended, or other.
Includes the basic information your team needs to plan Sunday worship: Liturgical day, lections from The Revised Common Lectionary, suggested liturgical colors, glossary of worship terms, worship supplies checklist, and hymn suggestions from The United Methodist Hymnal, The Faith We Sing, Songs of Zion, Mil Voces Para Celebrar: Himnario Metodista, and Hymns from the Four Winds: A Collection of Asian American Hymns.
The planning chart for each Sunday includes space to record the sermon title or topic, the selected hymns and music, anthem, names of acolytes and readers, and special services such as baptisms and confirmations.
This is a complete calendar with U.S. and Canadian national days, Orthodox dates for Easter and Pentecost, major Jewish feasts and festivals, special secular days such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Kwanza, beginning and ending dates for daylight savings time, and more.
Two resources for planning worship are Celebrating Special Days and Creative Ways to Offer Praise.
