Product Description

The Abingdon Worship Annual is lectionary-based and follows the calendar year (January - December). It offers fresh worship planning resources for all who plan and implement weekly worship. Worship leaders "need to offer prayers, prepare an order of worship, select music, and even prepare a sermon. Into that weekly task, we offer this resource to strengthen your ability to lead creatively and prepare consistently." Liturgies and prayers are also included for New Year’s Day, Ascension Day, All Saints Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Eve.

Using a theme based on the lectionary readings from the Common English Bible, each week’s offering of prayers and litanies follows a basic pattern of Christian worship:

  • Invitation and Gathering
  • Proclamation and Response
  • Thanksgiving and Communion
  • Sending Forth

The Abingdon Worship Annual is a must-have source book offering countless opportunities for planning meaningful and insightful worship.
