When a pastor is unavailable to lead worship, consider asking an elder to lead the congregation in a time extended scripture reading, singing, and prayer. These services don’t require preaching or much preparation, but are great blessing to both the elder and the congregation, especially because so much scripture is read in a single service.

Here are some ready-to-use liturgies I’ve written. Feel free to use or adapt them to meet your needs.

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