New Resources for Sunday Worship Services
“For years, I struggled to find creative ideas for connecting work and worship. This is the most comprehensive collection available anywhere. I didn’t know where to point pastors and worship leaders previously. Now, I do.” – Reverend Alistair Mackenzie
Pastors and worship leaders now have a go-to collection for Sunday morning worship resources. We’ve added over 200 new items to help you help churchgoers connect worship with their workweek. There are sermons, sample services, biblical readings and quotes. For leaders in a hurry, we have “quick pick” lists of prayers, hymns, and contemporary songs. Visit Worship Resources page to check it out!
Devotionals for Working Women
“As a newly qualified female surgeon, who just started a practice (along with my journey in Christ), I found the plan to be supportive…[It] encouraged me in using my gift as a blessing to others. As a result, I am contemplating a project of my own to help other women.” – Neo Mabe, reader, “Created and Called: Women in the Workplace”
Working women wrestle with a number of challenges, from obstacles to leadership and dealing with discrimination, to managing family life and establishing healthy rhythms of work and rest. What biblical wisdom can women draw from to meet today’s workplace challenges? Check out our latest, new 7-day devotional for women, Overcoming the Challenges of Working Women, available right from your phone with the YouVersion Bible App.
And if you missed it previously, check out our 6-day devotional for women Created and Called: Women in the Workplace. This plan starts in Genesis with God's original call to work, then explores biblical examples of women who work.
