Get Advent/Christmas worship done IMMEDIATELY
with full scripts for a deeply meaningful journey called
"God Bless Us Every One: The Redemption of Scrooge"
from Dr. Marcia McFee!
Dr. Marcia McFee has been known for creating deeply meaningful and memorable worship for over 20 years.
In her Worship Design Studio online coaching website, subscribers have access to 8+ years of
worship series with ideas for every Sunday, designed specifically for mainline Protestant churches
with a variety of worship styles!
Earlier this year,
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER,
Dr. McFee decided to offer fully-developed liturgies complete with prayers, litanies, communion liturgy, familiar
hymns and song
suggestions (with alternatives for various styles of worship), original music, leader transitions completely written out, and ideas for visual and media elements in a Lent series called
"Gifts of the Dark Wood."
SO MANY CHURCHES
to have their most memorable Lent ever,
that she received countless e-mails
asking for more!
So, here is her answer:
"Advent/Christmas can be such a stressful time of year for pastors and worship artists. And what we'd really like to be doing is enjoying this season just as much as everyone else. With this fully-scripted series you can lead your team in quickly tweaking the materials for your context and best of all... give you peace of mind and excitement for the rest of the year! I'm so excited about this series! You are going to love our music, visual and dramatic suggestions as well as the wonderful small group resources available from Abingdon Press to accompany this worship series! I hope you'll join us in transforming lives and communities with a deeply meaningful holy-day season." - Dr. Marcia McFe
As with the Lent series, Dr. McFee has drawn on the talents of Worship Design Studio guest experts
for new arrangements of familiar hymns, ideas for Children's Time, and choral anthem suggestions.

Why this series for Advent/Christmas?
From Dr. Marcia:
"In looking for a resource that would bring a meaningful and memorable experience to Worship Design Studio churches, I was struck by Matt Rawle's treatment of this classic tale. Far from being a surface treatment of a popular secular story, Rawle helps us see the correlation of Scrooge's transformation to the one we are invited to through the birth of Jesus.
In this series we will proclaim that living in God’s economy of grace and justice is the antithesis of the life-threatening addiction to money, success, exclusion and looking out for ourselves that seems to characterize so much rhetoric these days.
Just as God’s presence was born anew into this world,
we too can be born anew, woken up and redeemed
into renewed life, joy, passion, generosity, humility and love."
