Worship Services for Conservative Christians [Updated]

UPDATE (5/29/11 6:24a EST): Several people have requested that I include links to the extra hymns in these services; they are linked below.

Next week I am looking forward to participating in what has become an annual gathering of conservative friends. We’ve met for the past four years for mutual encouragement, instruction, discussion, and worship.

I’ve spoken at this meeting, and for the past three years I’ve planned our times of worship. This year we are having two services, evening worship on Monday and a morning Lauds service on Tuesday.

If you want to know what I’d consider ideal worship services, here are links to the two services I planned:

Evening Worship

Morning Lauds Service

Here are the extra hymns that I used in these services:

“Depth of Mercy”

“Hymn of Hope”

“Awake, My Soul, and with the Sun”

Gloria Patri

“God, Be Merciful to Me”
