Worship Planning Notes

Consider holding your revival services on nights that persons are most likely to attend and during the time of year when it is easiest for those with children to attend.

This year, consider something new for Revival:

  • For example, host a revival for four days (not necessarily consecutive days) during a particular month and invite all persons who own and work for businesses in your community.
  • Combine a day-time revival with a jobs and/or clothes fair on a Saturday.

  • Another good idea would be to hold a revival featuring only old-time music and old-fashioned preaching and another featuring only modern songs and modern-styled preaching.

Donít forget, youth and young adults should be heavily involved in your Revival planning. Also, be sure to make CDs or DVDs of your services so that they can be enjoyed by those who are home-bound and to give to visitors to your church. CDs and DVDs are great evangelism tools and marketing tools.

Whatever you do, this year, think out of the box. The world is in need of revival. The need has not changed, but our methods to draw persons to hear the Word of God must be modern.

1. Invocation

Lord, revive us again that your people may rejoice in you. Thank you for showing us your mercy and loving-kindness and for granting us salvation. Create in us clean hearts, O God, and renew a right, preserving, and steadfast spirit within us.

Help us to ever be doers of the Word and not hearers only. By this the world will know that we have been revived. We long for your precepts; in your righteousness, give us renewed life. This is our comfort and consolation in our affliction: that your Word revives us and gives us new life.
