Planning Worship Workshop on July 29 with Ruth Ann Schuringa: If worship is about our relationship with God, our conversation with Him, how can we plan a rich, engaging service that reflects that? How can we best plan thematic worship so our congregation is enriched and challenged in their praises and prayers to God? How do we choose songs, prayers, readings, and visuals for worship that guide us into good relational habits with our Creator God? Come for an evening of learning with Ruth Ann on Monday, July 29, 6:30-9:00 pm at the Clinton CRC. We will share together a process for planning the liturgy, and resources as well. There will be pizza available and a time to socialize beginning at 6:30 pm with the workshop beginning promptly at 7:00 pm.
