Worship Resources for Lent & Easter
Ash Wednesday will be on March 2 in 2022, and it is the start of the Lenten season (see Why Baptist Churches Should Celebrate Lent). I have updated and compiled below some helpful links as you begin planning your worship services for the coming weeks.
Remember that Easter is much more powerful if we help our congregations experience the Lenten season in the days leading up to Easter.
Check out these articles:
- Why Baptist Churches Should Celebrate Lent
- Service ideas for Holy Week:
- Lent: A Crash Course for the Modern Church Worship Leader
- Lent Planning Workshop
Here, you will find resources to locate new songs for the season as well as great arrangements of hymns. You can also find multiple resources for helping the coming weeks come alive in the lives of your congregation.
