To the Central Valley District:
Perhaps you may remember the “Save the Date” sent out on May 17 about the upcoming Dr. Marcia McFee worship seminar on September 9, 2017 at Clovis Memorial UMC.  I promised more information would be coming.  Here are some things I would like you to know right now.
First, for those who do not know Dr. Marcia McFee, she is a well-known leader and designer of worship for regional and national gatherings including events here in our Conference as well as UMC General Conference.  She is a professor, worship designer, author, preacher and ritual artist.  But her main call to ministry is creating interactive learning environments where local church staff and volunteers of any denomination experience ways to create “deep soul” worship that honors our tradition while offering the message through 21st century mediums.
The exciting topics Dr. Marcia McFee will cover from her workshop description are:
  • Creating Worship with Deep Soul—In this sessions Marcia will introduce what she means by “M-M-Good” worship and why this is the most exciting time in worship history to be planning worship, no matter the “style!”
  • Think Like a Filmmaker—What can we learn from filmmakers that can inform our work in offering the greatest Story ever told in sensory-rich ways?  Why do we need sensory-rich worship and how we do it in large and small churches with small budgets and volunteers?
  • The Rhythms of Liturgy and Life & the Politics of Change—With lots of interactive music we will explore the various rhythms of worship vocabularies and why we benefit from utilizing a diversity of rhythms (AND why we get into “worship wars” and how to avoid it).
  • “O Lord, Is It Sunday Already?!”—Worship planning can be relentless with Sunday coming EVERY week!  We’ll talk about planning substantive and vital worship without getting burned out drawing on the model offered in Marcia’s Worship Design Studio.
Don’t these topics excite you to save the date of September 9, 2017 to attend this exciting worship seminar with Dr. Marcia McFee?
