Reformation 500 worship resources for outreach

The Reformation 500 Committee has prepared worship resources that highlight the “solas” of the Reformation, including sermon studies, worship outlines, and music resources. The resources are coordinated according to a four-Sunday schedule: Scripture Alone, Christ Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone.

The sermon studies offer background, text study, suggested outlines, and children’s sermon ideas.

The worship outlines are designed to be accessible and therefore “visitor-friendly.” They are rooted in the familiar liturgies, hymns, and psalms of Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal and Christian Worship: Supplement, but also offer variety and flexibility, as well as some new music resource options. Hymns and Psalms have been chosen to closely relate to the theme of each service. Both NIV and ESV translations of the readings are provided.

The music resources include a paraphrase of the Apostle’s Creed set to the familiar hymn tune ODE TO JOY and a gathering rite based on selected Psalms set to original music. These resources are noted as options for use in place of the spoken creed or
standard service beginning, respectively.

We hope these resources will be a blessing to your congregation and community as you celebrate the gospel and invite others to know it.

Coordinating bulletins are available for purchase from Northwestern Publishing House.
