There are times in the life of a church when a pastor is unavailable to preach and lead worship. Maybe he’s on vacation or study leave. Maybe the church is without a pastor at the moment. When this happens, what should a church do, especially in an emergency?

One option is to have ready-to-use liturgies on hand that don’t require preaching and can be used by an elder without much time to prepare. It’s not ideal, but it’s not a bad option at all.

Below are some examples of this. Feel free to copy and adapt them for your own needs. And if you write one, please share it with me!

  1. Jesus’ Crucifixion
  2. The Holiness of God in His Temple
  3. Ephesians
