How do you plan a worship service? Where do you start?
It’s likely that the process looks different from church to church and worship planner to worship planner, but I thought it might be helpful to share an inside look at my worship planning process, from start to finish.
Before I do that, however, I want to share a few articles and resources that have been helpful to me:
UMC Discipleship - Worship Planning - sample orders of worship, sermon notes, hymn/song suggestions, and other resources (click “This Week’s Planning Resources” to see worship planning suggestions for each week)
A Single-Thread Worship Planning Model - an insightful look at integrated liturgy and the benefits of planning sermon series
The Nuts and Bolts of Worship Planning - "collected wisdom from 100 congregations"
