Looking for a litany to use for commissioning your Sunday school team? Here are some sources to check out:
LUYH, the new CRC/RCA hymnal includes a full commissioning liturgy on page 855, and a prayer for commissioning leaders on page 869 that goes along with the song Here I Am, Lord! If your church has begun using LUYH you'll have an easy time using one of those options in your worship service.
Another great source is the Reformed Worship website. This website offers past articles from the Reformed Worship magazine, including several commissioning litanies that have been featured over the years. A forum post on the Youth Ministry network also turned up a few other options. Pastor's John Lee and Bert Solfstra have offered to share litanies that they've written and used with their congregations. You can contact John Lee and Bert Slofstra at [email protected] and [email protected] to ask for a copy.
I hope you'll have the chance in the next few weeks to train your leaders and commission them for a new season of faith nurture ministry!
