For many of us, the start of the program year (often the Sunday after labor day, but some are in August and some will be later because of September 11th…) involves a very exciting worship experience. Often choirs return from summer break, the space may be decorated, there are more people around (maybe because Sunday School starts up again?), etc. Do you do anything special in worship to start the program year? Are you looking for creative ideas or hoping to bounce some stuff around and see what might work? Let’s dream together about how to kick off a new year in worship.
