You got this!Worship artists are being challenged as never before to provide creative worship that spiritually uplifts, but in ways that many of us have never explored. One of the ways The Fellowship is responding to this unprecedented need is to provide a space where we can help each other find resources and answer questions. Our "Pandemic Response Worship Resources" document isn't going to be polished. But it is going to be a dynamic exchange of ideas and helps that you can use for planning worship in these next weeks.

Peace be with you as you minister to those in your choirs, bands, congregations, and on the other side of whatever technology you are using to continue to meet the needs of your flock. Together – even virtually – we can still #BeTheFellowship.
