Youth Sunday Resources
On Sunday, August 21, congregations in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are invited—as a response to the Lord’s Day emphasis of “Youth in the Church and World“—to be led in worship by the youth and adult youth workers of their church.
The Presbyterian Mission Agency, through the Office of Ministries with Youth, is pleased to offer a free resource entitled, “Out of Many We Are One,” that provides a detailed outline of a “Youth Sunday,” youth-led worship service. It vividly illustrates passages in Paul’s letters to the Roman and Corinthian communities that focus on the relationship between being individual parts of a body versus the body as a whole. The resource contains a complete worship service with leader notes, hymn suggestions, and even instructive photographs for interactive prayers of the people. The service is a perfect and fun order of worship for a specific Youth Sunday, for a “Youth in the Church and World” emphasis, or any worship opportunity led by youth any time of the year. “Out of Many We Are One” was written by Rev. Jeremy Wilhelmi and first led by Wilhelmi and the youth of Salisbury Presbyterian Church, Midlothian, Virginia.
“Out of Many We Are One” is a part of the Quicksheets resource family. Quicksheets are fast, fresh, and relevant downloadable resources created by youth workers for those active in youth ministry. Quicksheets are free and available online at: https://www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/youthministry/ .
