Worship Planning Notes

The Church is the spiritual healing organism for communities. As you prepare for worship this Sunday, think of ways to heal your community as you celebrate Mission Sunday in your local church. Strong and relevant Christian education ministries produce strong mission-focused churches. This is a great time to revitalize and/or ensure that your Christian education ministry is giving leadership to strong mission efforts in your community.

Marino J. Dasmarinas reflects on the mission of the church: ďGodís word is not bounded by time and space; itís always relevant and timely. The command of Jesus to His disciples to proclaim the message and make a difference on the lives of their fellowmen is also His command to us right now: Proclaim the message and make a difference in the lives of your fellowmen.Ē

Suggestions to enhance your worship experience/celebration:

  • Have a teen reader and the congregation recite the verses below for your Mission Sunday (Mission Work at Home) worship service.

ďHeal the WorldĒ by Michael Jackson

Teen Reader: Thereís a place in your heart and I know that it is love and this place could be much brighter than tomorrow.

And if you really try youíll find thereís no need to cry. In this place youíll feel thereís no hurt or sorrow.

There are ways to get there if you care enough for the living. Make a little space, make a better place.

ALL: Heal the world.
Make it a better place for you and for me and the entire human race.

There are people dying.
If you care enough for the living,
Make it a better place for you and for me.
  • Incorporate a testimonial period for persons (young and old) to share their stories of how they have been helped through mission services provided by your church. Hopefully this will inspire more members in your church to engage in mission work. As a second option, you can place the testimonials in an insert for each bulletin.

  • Invite staff and residents of recovery programs to worship with your local church on Mission Day. During the service offer a blessing for the leaders of these programs and those served by each organization. Organizations to consider inviting (you are not limited to these groups) include:
    • Narcotics Anonymous groups
    • Local cancer support groups
    • Grief support groups
    • S.O.S. (Survivors of Suicide)
    • Alzheimer and dementia support groups
    • Family Support Program (for Families of Mentally Disabled Children)
    • HIV/AIDS organizations
    • Veterans organizations
    • Staff and residents of homeless shelters
    • Organizations that serve abused women and children
    • Big Brothers and Big Sisters
  • Your Menís or Diakanos Ministry could host a night of fellowship and share with local organizations that are working to combat juvenile delinquency in your community. Depending upon the size of your congregation, host a group of 20Ė30 young men so that they all get to share in the eveningís events. This can begin a spiritual healing process for those who donít have positive male and female influences in their lives. It can also become a major menís ministry project for your church.
