As congregations continue their preparations for an eventual return to gathering physically together, the Eastern Synod’s Task Force for the Resumption of In-Person Worship is pleased to share a new Worship Resource. This resource includes a number of liturgical suggestions, as well as a timely reflection about the proposed changes to communion which can be used as a devotional tool or included in your upcoming newsletters and/or other communications.
We pray that these resources will further support congregations and congregational leaders during this time of transition.
We are exceedingly grateful to all who have given generously of their time and talents in support of this resource: Rev. Ed Bastian, Rev. Susan Climo, Trevor Hicks, Rev. Allen Jorgenson, Rev. Hilla Lahtinen, Debbie-Lou Ludolph, Rev. Rick Pryce, Rev. Elina Salonen and the Production Team from Trillium Lutheran Church, Waterloo.
Included in this resource you will find the following:
Prayer of the Day
Prayers of Intercession
Sharing of the Peace: “Peace Be With You”
Thanksgiving at the Table
Reflection: Communion in Amber
Welcome Back: A Kids and Critters’ Guide To Worship
