With the Whole Church
A seven-session study guide for Renewing Worship invites people into conversation and study about worship, to think and to share with one another, growing together in our understanding of why worship matters and how worship draws us into God’s own mission. The study guide is designed as a leader’s book with reproducible participant pages within it. Any part of the study guide may be reproduced for local use.

In anticipation of the 2005 Churchwide Assembly, a 7 minute video entitled With the Whole Church was prepared for Synod Assemblies and then revised slightly, so that it could be part of the Renewing Worship presentation at Churchwide Assembly. You may view the video online. (Note: You must have RealPlayer installed on your computer to view this video. RealPlayer is available for free download.)
The illustrations included in With the Whole Church are available for use in locally-produced materials such as church bulletins, newsletters, and advertising, provided that such copies are for one-time or one-season use at worship or in study, are not sold or further distributed, and the following copyright notice appears:
