Worship Themes


Resource Type: Downloads

These worship themes are intended to be an aid for song leaders. Each theme is a two-page template for the introduction to worship section of a service, each based on a key tenet of Scripture. These documents can be used freely.

The worship themes include Scripture reading, singing, and times of meditation. They are intended to be flexible and able to be used in different ways, depending on your congregation’s traditional order of service. The song leader should shape them to the needs of each individual congregation.

This page will be updated regularly (once or twice a month) with new themes.
