Last night was our first foray into shared "contemporary" worship. It was at Tolono, and it seemed like we made a good start. Jennifer (Little - Tolono's interim pastor) designed the service, which included some singing, some praying, a skit about the theme of the service - "Wake Up", scripture, a message and more singing. It was a worshipful time for me, and for the dozen (maybe 15) folks who came.
In October we're doing a coffee house style service at Philo Pres. I'm planning and putting together, so if you have any thoughts . . . I'd welcome your input.
