We are delighted to see photos from Harvard UCC’s “Lay Led Worship Service for a Compassion Driven Congregation”! We appreciate your thanks for the Conferences’ creation of this resource and are so glad to see you using it! The Conference asked all churches to take time this fall to use this service so that pastors could receive an extra week of paid vacation for rest and renewal. Haven’t used it yet? Visit ucctcm.org/congregationresources to find the worship script. This service can be used for both in-person and online services.
Curious about why Harvard used plywood in their service? Here’s their explanation: “We started with various people representing multiple groups in our church. One by one we sat down leaving just our council president to hold the church up on his own. We did this to represent that we need to work together to make our church.”
