This collection of weekly resources are intended to support worship in the congregations and ministries of the ELCIC and partner churches by providing information and ideas supplementary to other print and online sources.

2018 Epiphany Resources for Worship for Small Assemblies 

The Program Committee for Worship of the ELCIC has commissioned a series called Where Two or Three Are Gathered: Worship for Small Assemblies. It is a series of worship outlines for the seasons of the church year using Evangelical Lutheran Worship as the primary resource.
We begin with worship outlines for each of the four Sundays of Advent, prepared by Michèle Barr. One set of outlines includes Holy Communion, and one set of outlines is for Service of the Word.

We hope you find these outlines helpful in your worship planning.

Resources for other seasons include weekly themes, songs, prayers and liturgical and visual ideas as available that are more specifically “ELCIC and ecumenical, Canadian, current and contextual.” If you have any feedback or wish to contribute to this online resource, please contact the editor.

The following weekly resources are available:
