ECM Launches Worship Outreach Team

Worship can take many forms, from so-called “traditional” services with hymns, scripture, prayers, and a sermon, to contemplative experiences full of personalized rituals and time for reflection, to exuberant expressions of praise with music, dance, and drama. The options are only limited by the imagination. 

Beginning this fall, ECM will establish the Worship Outreach Team (WOT) to closely examine the art of worship as part of our work with the Lilly Endowment’s Campus Ministry Theological Exploration of Vocation initiative. 

What: A team to contemplate, create, and present worship experiences in a variety of styles and formats to congregations throughout Kansas.

When: Approximately 4-6 Sundays per semester with regular worship planning sessions between and an informational meeting at the beginning of the semester.

Why:There are many reasons. Here are just a few:

  • To gain experience creating and presenting worship  
  • To explore the devotional nature of worship creation
  • To meet other congregations and worshippers throughout the region
  • To experience a variety of worship styles and formats

Who: Anyone and everyone. The WOT will not only need individuals to present worship but also “behind the scenes” to help create and assemble the materials we will use within each service. The WOT needs persons with skills or interests in, but not limited to:

  • Writing/Editing
  • Music
  • Public Speaking
  • Drama/Storytelling
  • Dance
  • Visual Arts
  • Children/Youth

New Developments!

The ECM is very proud to announce the brand new choir program, The K-State Voices of Praise!  This group will be meeting weekly on Sundays at the ECM, with a time still being worked out.  There is no requirements or qualifications for this group other than you have to love music and want to learn more about the connection between the praise and worship.  The group is planning on putting on two performances this fall, and it’s sure to be so much fun!  For more information check back to our blog, or at the ECM website www.ksu.edu/ecm
