Worship Ways: a variety of prayers, liturgies, and "how-to" articles for use on Sundays, Festivals, and special UCC calendar days. These resources come from all settings of the UCC; they are written by pastors, educators, musicians and covenanted ministry staff members. Many are based on the Sunday readings found in the Revised Common Lectionary. We encourage you to use the material "as is" or to take it and adapt it for your local setting.
