Print Resources for worship:

Of course there are many resources that are excellent. Our church library has several. Some that our Worship Oversight Committee has suggested are following:

Readings from Mennonite Writings by Craig Haas
It has writings for every day of the year, and has indexes in the back for topic, year they were written, country of origin and scripture they reference.

Preparing Sunday Dinner by June Alliman Yoder, Marlene Kropf, & Rebecca Slough
Talks about the various elements of worship in terms of preparation of meal. It also has helpful appendices in the back.

Both of these have readings and prayers for worship along different themes and uses in worship.
