It’s been a long year! Covid has brought new challenges and significant loss for all of us. In a joint effort to bless our churches, Worship Ministries and Pastor Church Resources have commissioned video sermons from denominational leaders in Canada and the United States.
While there are a variety of reasons to use pre-recorded video sermons (pulpit supply during vacation, vacancy, emergency, etc) we request that your church would use one or more to give your pastor a Sunday off from preaching. We see this as a tangible way to care for your pastor, whose ministry has been extremely challenging over the last year.
We currently have 6 sermons available on the Worship Ministries resource page with many more on the way which will be added throughout the summer. There is also a folder with worship planning resources for the available sermons. Take a look and see if any of these are helpful and please do add to them if you use one of the sermons and have good liturgy/song suggestions to contribute!
