Publisher's Description

The Abingdon Worship Annual 2017 (AWA 2017) offers fresh worship planning resources for all who plan and implement weekly worship. Worship leaders "need to offer prayers, prepare an order of worship, select music, and even prepare a sermon. Into that weekly task, we offer this resource to strengthen your ability to lead creatively and prepare consistently." Alternative ideas for Praise Sentences and Contemporary Gathering Words are offered for those who work in contemporary worship settings.

Using a theme based on the lectionary readings, now from the Common English Bible, each week’s offering of prayers and litanies follows a basic pattern of Christian worship:
  • Invitation and Gathering
  • Proclamation and Response
  • Thanksgiving and Communion
  • Sending Forth

Searchable online extras! Available exclusively to Abingdon Worship Annual users. Along with the entire print text in PDF format for ease of navigation and use, The AWA 2017 offers these extras:

  • Song suggestions for each week, hyperlinked to the text
  • Annotated Resource List with links to helpful worship planning websites
  • Liturgies and prayers for New Year’s Day, Ascension Day, All Saints Day, and Thanksgiving

Now more than ever, The Abingdon Worship Annual is a must-have sourcebook offering countless opportunities for planning meaningful and insightful worship.
