What does a "typical" worship service at your church look like? I know we vary things, but everyone falls into general patterns. Does your church tend to be more traditional or contemporrary? Lean toward gospel hymn, Southeren gospel,or more "churchly" hymns or choruses? We tend to be traditional to blended, using a variety of styles in worship. Hymnically we tend to use more "churchly" hymns, gospel hymns and some praie choruses. Here's my church's typical service organ prelude Welcome welcome/fellowship song - greet one another Invocation Call to worship - generally choral - could be other Hymn or Hymn medley or Praise Children's message - children come down front after they go to children's worship Hymn - or solo, or choral, etc Morning prayer by pastor Offertory hymn or medley Piano or Organ offertory Musical message - generally choir Sermon Invitation hymn Opportunities (fancy name for announcements) Piano or Organ postlude Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you about this. I love learning what others do and how they do it.
