How To Write Your Own . . .
You’re looking through the WorshipWeb database trying to find just the right words to move deeper into the service you’re planning. Have you ever stopped to think where all those words came from? Someone wrote them. Someone just like you. Perhaps, instead of looking on the Internet for someone else’s words, you might look inside for your own.
This brief guide will offer simple explanations of the various elements of the worship service that might help you as you take up this challenge (and opportunity) of becoming your own liturgist. Think of how closely tied to a single theme your service can be when you write the elements of it yourself? Your congregation may appreciate the added depth of hearing the words of one of their own as well. And—who knows?—some day someone else may be searching through WorshipWeb and find that your words are just what they were looking for!
What follows is a listing of the major worship elements that are included in the WorshipWeb database and for which individuals might be asked to write material. Look at only what interests you, or read the entire document.
