B. General Information:
Tim brought examples of bulletins from the Professional Leaders Conference. With different ideas of ways to present the information. 1. Has absolutely everything written out including all the prayers and songs to words. 2. The other is a very brief, with references to the setting and readings.
New hymnal is a lovely cranberry color… Tim likes the setting 8. New hymnals come the end of Dec. Commissioning of the new hymnals Dec 31st.
Tomorrow Reformation Sunday… Tim went over tomorrow’s bulletin, songs – some of the songs may need some to be practiced by Choir to lead the songs. Both services are laid out. We can keep the services different.
Goal to have a 2-hour monthly meeting where we plan out 4 weeks of meetings.
Tim’s suggestion is that in the M&W meeting discuss the 10am service. And Tim will work on the 7:30am on his own, unless we have time to handle in the monthly meeting.
Consider evening worship services: for instance Wed nights in Lent to combine with
Youth group meetings
Need to meet the need of disenfranchised groups.
Want to use Hawaiian Hymnals to have more Hawaiian songs and blessing.
Sunday Night Christmas Eve 5 and 10:30 pm
Hark the Herald Angel sings… PU and Ruth Angel dance. .
Christmas Morning service has 10am Monday
Tim will be working on a template for the meetings to see what people have in mind for songs as part of worship for specific Sundays.
Call of worship:
Gospel Song (post gospel) wraps up Gospel, or prepares for Sermon
Sermon hymn (follows sermon) tie to sermon and theme for day
Communion Hymn--- we don’t currently do and can be done in place of Doxology
And then Special presentations…
