Global Worship Resources

These worship resources were gathered for Glocal Church Sunday, January 6, 2019 to help congregations and worshiping communities of this church celebrate our connections and common mission in Christ’s global church.

The texts and prayers included below help bring to expression our understanding that we are united by the Spirit of God through the means of grace with our siblings in Christ throughout the world.

The resources below may be adapted for your local context. These prayers may be tied to specific people in global service with the ELCA. You can share real-life stories from the global church with updated resources HERE
