Making the Most of CW21

The Christian Worship suite offers a wealth of resources for planning worship. Intended for pastors, musicians, artists, and altar guilds, this presentation covers a variety of themes to help worship planners: seasonal best practices, how to introduce new music, balancing variety with comfort, recognizing the capabilities of differing congregations, and creating festive worship for festival days. Consideration will be given to a wide variety of parish sizes and circumstances.
