Intensive Workshop

Rev. Dr. Cheryl A. Lindsay, Minister for Worship and Theology, United Church of Christ

Thursday, June 6, 2024 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Title: Engaging Worship Planning: Revelation, Response, Resources

This intensive experience will embody the four movements of worship: gathering, word (revelation), response, and sending. Through a combination of liturgy, lecture, discussion groups, reflection, and exercise, participants will engage the foundational principles of worship, create and curate rituals and resources, and discover and share best practices. A particular emphasis will be given to worship that centers on hospitality, celebrates inclusivity, and fosters belonging.
