ABOUT THE SERIES
Wish you were more "tuned in" to God, to life and what you really want?
This Lenten worship series from Dr. Marcia McFee and the Worship Design Studio features ways to listen for the "still, small voice" within us in worship as well as in spiritual practices outside of worship such as lectio divina, contemplative prayer, praying with beads, walking/running as prayer and Bible journaling. Small group suggestions include a video series of the same name from our partners at Darkwood Brew or a book study from Parker Palmer (all sold seperately). This series is the first of the WDS collaboration with the Center for Innovation in Ministry at San Francisco Theological Seminary–all churches who do this series will have two free months access to www.thisweaffirm.org.
These fully-scripted worship series have become the "go-to" for churches across the country. They come complete with prayers, litanies, communion liturgy, familiar hymns and song suggestions (with alternatives for various styles of worship), original music, leader transitions completely written out, and ideas for visual and media elements–all adaptable for your context. See what pastors are saying about Dr. McFee's resources:
"We are really enjoying the music, the symbols and the deep meaning of this series. And I'm really enjoying less-stress where worship planning has not taken over my schedule. Thank you!!!"
"I have loved having this series to jazz me back up and give me practical tips for my worship planning! It is tough sometimes to carve out the time to do advance planning... My music director is thrilled and my altar arts person is so excited!"
"I’m so grateful for your creative and dedicated work for worship. We have used your work in Advent and Lent for the last few years and have started to use it at other times too. I love that you offer so much to use and the chance to adapt it to our setting and style. Grateful for your gift and precious ministry, it has blessed our church in important and meaningful ways."
""We are getting tons of great comments from our congregation - they are loving this series! Our youth director told me it's the best Lent series she's ever seen at any church. I just love everything you put together - what a wonderful resource Worship Design Studio is! Thank you!"
