Commissioning Service Ideas
Christian education week, designated in the Presbyterian Planning Calendar to begin the first Sunday after Labor day, is much more than a program emphasis Sunday or a theme week to jump start church after the lazy days of summer. New seasons at church begin with celebration. Congregations gather to worship and renew commitments of leaders and learners, seekers and servants. Members reunite as one particular body of Christ, called to teach, to preach and to reach in dynamic and faithful ways. Use these suggestions in a commissioning service.
