The changes in worship format that have been necessary during 2020 have had at least one wonderful side effect—as congregations were forced to go online, people with disabilities and families that include children, youth, and young adults with disabilities were finally able to participate and be a part of the worship service. Now online worship is here to stay. This course will explore alternative and creative ways to engage and inspire congregations in this new time of doing worship that also includes people with disabilities. Because many rural areas do not have access to internet, the structure of the material proposed can be used for an online or in-person format. Harriet has written the planner Engage and Inspire: Worship Planning and Ideas for 2021. Included are outlines for outside worship, for podcasts or video recordings, and a prayer and fellowship that can be in person or online through an online video conferencing platform. In this course, we will work together planning worship services for the Season of Lent and Easter Sunday.
