Do you want to learn how to preach and lead worship, but don't know where to start? This practical guide by experienced Methodist Lay Preacher Rosalie Sugrue will get you going. Or perhaps the preacher hasn't arrived to take your service and you don't know what to do. The first c...hapter - Help! The Preacher hasn't arrived - shows you how to manage if this happens, by using the resources you have on hand. In the first third of the book Rosalie outlines information on key people and history in the Scriptures and offers a helpful step-by-step guide to planning and leading a service. In the rest of her book, Rosalie draws on the teaching tools and ideas she has developed as an educator and provides a variety of full service outlines and many sample prayers, as well as a list of websites and books as additional resources. From the Introduction: In these times of aging congregations, an increasing number of parishes are becoming unable to support a full-time presbyter and untrained lay people are finding themselves being shoulder-tapped to lead services. Volunteers are the salt of the earth, but all volunteers need some helpful pointers to be of use, regardless of the task. Leading a service is a serious responsibility. Ideally all worship leaders should undergo a comprehensive course in Bible study, church history, theology (study of God: Greek theos God and logos reason ), Christian beliefs (faith and practice), homiletics (the art of preaching), and other religions. Potential worship leaders deserve to be mentored into accepting increasing worship responsibilities before contemplating leading an entire service. But we often find ourselves in situations far less than ideal. The intention of this book is to consider practicalities and set out the basics of worship leading, as well as providing some essential background knowledge, samples and resources.
