As Worship Commission started thinking about Lent and planning for our Lenten services, we decided to form an ad hoc committee to pull in additional members of the congregation. In the past, we have asked people from the congregation to share during the service in place of the sermon, and we decided to give Dave a break from preaching for Lent.
Each Sunday, we have 3-4 people from the congregation share on the weekly theme. We sing one verse of a hymn between each story to provide a separation and to help us move on to the next story. The sharing creates a space for community in the service and helps us be vulnerable with each other.
We love hearing from people in the congregation, and we hope you enjoy it as well!
