Worship Associate and Sermon Writing Workshop
Saturday, May 18, 2019  09:00am 12:00pm
First Church Event
Did you miss last month’s Worship Workshops?  No worries, there’s another one happening on Saturday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to noon!    These workshops are for anyone who is interested in serving as a Sunday morning Worship Associate and for those who might want to lead a Vespers or Sunday morning service in the future.  We’ll also talk about the new Worship Associate program and changes to the Worship Committee structure.   For the first two hours, we’ll cover understanding the arc and elements of a service and discuss the incorporation of music, ritual and readings. Attendees will learn about the First Church worship calendar, how services are selected and scheduled, the logistics of creating the Sunday morning and Vespers experiences, and about our new Worship Associate program. You’ll also have a chance to practice speaking from the pulpit. Those who are interested in sermon writing are invited to stay for the third hour where we’ll dive deeper into the different types of sermons, topic selection, timing, organization and writing.   Please RSVP to Rev. Connie (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by May 15 so we can make sure to have enough copies of the materials for everyone.
