Calling for Worship Associate Applications for 2015/2016
Do you love worship? Do you have a flair for writing stories or prose? Please consider applying to be a Worship Associate this year. Here’s what Worship Associates say about being a part of this group…
I have been speaking in public since I was 12 years old. I do it professionally. But it was always about someone or something else. Being a Worship Associate has given me a chance to speak my truth, to be vulnerable, and to share my heart. (Ginger Murphrey)
More than anything else I’ve done at First Universalist, being part of the Worship Associates team made me feel a part of this church. (Marion Dane Bauer)
The worship associate circle expanded my soul in ways that I could not have imagined. Gathering with such a wonderful group has made me feel more connected to the church. (Benjamin Miles)
Worship Associates speak 2 or 3 times during the church year in our worship services, September – May. Associates and Rev. Ruth MacKenzie gather for two half day retreats to discuss themes for upcoming months, talk about writing for oration, review how to layout a manuscript and practice public speaking.
If this interests you:
• Write a 500 word piece about forgiveness.
• Submit your manuscript to Rev. Ruth MacKenzie at: firstname.lastname@example.org
• Deadline for submissions May 15, 2015.
The Worship Team will be choosing applicants representative of the multi-generational, multi-cultural congregation we are becoming.
