Q. Why Reformed Worship?

A. We stand in unity with all Christians who affirm the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed. Yet, like all Christians, we stand in a particular historic tradition. Reformed Worship has roots in the Reformed branch of the 16th century Protestant Reformation that finds expression around the world in many languages and styles of worship, especially in churches with Reformed, Presbyterian, or Congregational in their names. We take the Reformed tradition seriously with respect to our understanding of Scripture as the inspired Word of God that tells the story of the creation of the world, its fall into sin, and how God works throughout history to redeem the world through Jesus Christ, by grace alone. By receiving God's mercy through Christ, we enter into an everlasting covenant with God, who promises to love us forever, even as we covenant to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ. For those interested in learning more about the Reformed tradition, consider purchasing the booklet What It Means to Be Reformed available at FaithAliveResources.org.

Q. Who benefits from using Reformed Worship?

A. Anyone involved in planning or leading worship, including:

Worship planners—everything from complete service plans to detailed ideas for series on different themes and Scripture passages to useful bits and pieces you can tie into a variety of services.

Preachers—lots of sermon starters in the context of worship planning that integrates all aspects of the service and articles written specifically for you.

Song leaders—song suggestions, background information on songs, performance helps.

Visual artists—ideas and illustrations of liturgical art, including banner designs, bulletin covers, and projection technology.

Drama and dance contributors—drama scripts and suggestions for using dance in worship

Q. Who reads the print edition and e-version?

A. Thousands of people in many different churches from many denominations. Some churches order multiple copies so that everyone on their worship committee or worship planning team has a copy. Print subscribers often save all their back issues and refer to them when planning using ideas from past issues as well as the current one. If you are looking for something specific consider using the search function on the website.

Q. Where does RW get its content?

A. From readers like you--whether you’re a volunteer worship planner, choir director, artist, or ministry staff person, from a small church or a large church, if your worship community has been blessed by something you have written, created, or planned consider sending it in.   (See Writers’ Guidelines.)
