Where the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window. – Fraulein Maria, The Sound of Music
Elkhorn, NE (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
WorshipOutlet.com announces the release of its first Thanksgiving resource since 2010. Written on the theme of "Praise Him in the Hallway" and based on Philippians 4: 4-20, this resource includes new elements not seen in previous Thanksgiving resources. Being billed as family worship, family members of all ages are included in readings, dramas, and a special sharing time. What better way to start the busy holiday season than with an opportunity to draw families together?
Giving thanks was a big part of this country's history, so important that the federal government established an official act proclaiming the day a holiday. For those blessed with employment, homes, family, health, and financial stability, this is an easy season to celebrate. But what about the millions unemployed and underemployed; those facing a health crises; spouses in an abusive relationship; couples and businesses facing bankruptcy; mourners grieving the loss of a loved one? As a whole, Christians can offer the hope of a loving God Who has plans for every person. And until those plans are revealed and the next door is opened, His instruction is to praise Him in the hallway!
All of WorshipOutlet.com’s resources are customizable to each church’s specific needs and style. Praise Him in the Hallway! works perfectly for Thanksgiving Eve, Thanksgiving Day, and the Sundays before and after. If your pastor is going out of town for the week, this service can be entirely youth-led or congregation led, removing the worry of finding a substitute pastor. Special components of this Thanksgiving worship service that can’t be found anywhere else include a thematic creed, confession, and prayers. It also features a Children’s Chat with a take-home puppet, a custom-written monologue, and a custom-created take-home remembrance JPEG image for advertising and service use. They even include YouTube links and websites to relieve users of those time-consuming internet searches to find music and videos. You won’t find all these features in one worship resource anywhere but WorshipOutlet.com. The price is a bit higher than former Thanksgiving services, but still a huge bargain at $19.99 with all those added components.
"Praise Him in the Hallway!" joins four previous Thanksgiving resources published by WorshipOutlet.com – "An Attitude of Gratitude", "Our Thanks: His You’re Welcome", "Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart", and "Hearts of Thanksgiving". As with all WorshipOutlet resources, these worship services are custom-written around a theme, and fully customizable to fit individual ministry preferences.
