Worship in today's mainline churches is changing faster than many ministry leaders would like, yet not fast enough to satisfy many laypeople who want to experience something fresh when they attend worship. While older members may resist losing valued traditions, younger people often want things done in new ways. Worship Innovations: Hanging The Greens For Christmas finds a middle ground with new approaches to valued traditions of holiday worship.
Beginning with a step-by-step guide for initiating a "Hanging the Greens" celebration, Janet Burton offers nine creative, easy-to-produce programs in which all ages of the church family can participate in the process of decorating worship areas for the Advent and Christmas seasons. She also includes five plans for breathing new life into using the Advent wreath. Best of all, these practical ideas are very flexible and easily adapted to fit the worship style of almost any congregation. It's a perfect way to usher in the holiday season and prepare for the birth of the Savior
