The 2020 General Conference worship design team invites United Methodists to apply to create liturgy for the quadrennial event, including prayers, calls to worship and litanies. The top legislative assembly will meet May 5-15, 2020, in Minneapolis.
“When liturgists from across the connection bring their voices together in prayer and celebration, the power and beauty of God is manifested in a sacred way,” said Raymond Trapp, General Conference worship and music director.
Individuals may apply to write or provide original liturgy for General Conference by submitting a letter of application with a sample of liturgy based on Philippians 3:14 and the name of the writer, email address, phone number and local church name. The sample must include a 5-minute devotion, a call to worship and a prayer of confession all.
Applications should be emailed to email@example.com. Deadline is Aug. 1, 2019.
All liturgy submitted, regardless of use by the General Conference, becomes the intellectual property of General Conference and may be used and/or distributed with the proper citation at the worship team’s discretion.
“One of the many strengths of the United Methodist Church is the variety of gifts in our denomination. General Conference affords us an opportunity to experience God in many ways in a central location,” Trapp said.
