Best Order of Worship

This past spring I had the honor to go to worship with 120 students and young adults at Baker University for the weekly chapel.

The 30-40 minute worship service was  a pattern I wanted to remember.

It was a quick pace, flowed nicely, ushered in the Holy Spirit and experience God in an efficient, clear and helpful way.

While there was a student band and student leadership, it was a common rhythm that encouraged and inspired me. Here it is:

  • Greeting
  • Call to Worship

  • 2 Songs
  • Prayer/Lord’s Prayer
  • Prayer Response Song
  • Scripture Reading (read by student)
  • Special Music (shared by student)
  • Introduction of Guest Speaker
  • Message (5-10 minutes)
  • Closing Song
  • Benediction/Postlude

Food downstairs afterwards, brought by churches

Next time I need to plan a worship service off-site or in general. Here’s the format!
