Pentecost Resources

The Transformation Team in CCIW is excited to be able to offer a sample of Fall Afresh: Renewing Resources for Pentecost and Beyond for use in your congregation. These worship resources, prayers, meditations, and activities are sure to lift up your spirits as you gather for worship on Pentecost.

Pentecost and transformation go hand-in-hand as we celebrate and remember God’s gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church. These resources are a gift from the Transformation Team and include a discount code should you want to purchase an even-more robust resource for your church. May God’s transforming spirit fall afresh on each of us, and all of us, we pray.

Fall Afresh is now available for download as a PDF file.

Reclaiming Our Call

Worship Resources to Spark Transformational Conversations

Reclaimed lumber can make spectacular furniture. The nail holes and scuff marks from the former use of the wood adds depth and character. The same is true when we reclaim our calling as Disciples of Christ. Each of our unique histories adds to the beauty of what God is calling each of us, and all of us to today.

“Reclaiming Our Call” is a cooperative project from the Illinois/Wisconsin and Michigan regions, that includes a scripture-based call to worship, opening prayer, a scripture suggestion, hymn suggestions, and preaching prompts. “Reclaiming our Call” was originally developed for use during Lent, and is currently undergoing a revision for use as a 5-week series appropriate at any time throughout the year.

Reclaiming Our Call is now available for download as a PDF file

If you have any questions, or would like more information about personal, congregational, or community transformation, please contact Associate Regional Minister for Transformation, Alex Ruth at [email protected].
