The Journal of Worship Resources

The Journal of 
Worship Resources is a quarterly publication designed to assist worship leaders in their weekly preparation of congregational worship. Each issue includes three sets of liturgical resources composed by different authors for each Sunday. These resources include:

  • Call to Worship
  • Opening Prayer
  • Confession
  • Assurance of Pardon
  • Offering Sentences
  • Offering Prayer
  • Call to Communion
  • Benediction

The readings follow the Revised Common Lectionary. Also included in each issue are Children’s Sermons based on the Gospel lection and Suggested Hymns for the Old Testament, Epistle and Gospel readings.

This journal is designed with a unique purpose—to be a resource for pastors by pastors. We recognize the rich resource congregational pastors are to the life of Christ’s church. We also recognize that there are few avenues through which congregational pastors can share their gifts beyond their local setting. For over 19 years, The Journal of Worship Resources has been a vehicle through which their gifts could be shared with others.

The Journal of Worship Resources is an excellent aid for lay leaders who may find themselves responsible for putting together worship services while their congregation is between pastors.
