Contemporary Worship was about using only the most “cutting edge songs,” where Modern Worship is about utilizing the best of everything the church has produced through its existence. (see The Future of Contemporary Worship) Since there are so few resources out there to help churches hoping to incorporate more traditional elements, I wanted to assemble and share a collection here.
In the typical order of service, there are songs, hymns, readings, scriptures and more for each area (or, there will be when I get done with them all!). Many of these we have used at Journey, though we haven’t used all of them yet. I’m working on arranging the hymns listed for worship team, and as I do, I will share them here.
