Planning for this Series

If you created a scene of wilderness last week, this week consider the stars. Add stars to your altar or sanctuary. You could have cut-out stars and crayons ready for children who are worshipping with you. It’s a great way to capture the imagination of the children in your congregation. For adults, put small blank stars in the bulletin and find a time in the service to invite people to write down the prayers and promises that they wait for from God.
