The New Year is almost here.

I was wondering how do you plan for a year of teaching, preaching programmes in church .

What resources in Logos are useful for this?

I know some follow the lectionary, but what about the rest?

How do you keep the balance, keep things healthy and things moving (momentum).

Do you deliberately leave gaps in your programme for the unexpected or more importantly for God to speak?

Or do you plan everything.

Happy New Year

This year we are going through the NT as a daily reading plan from February to November. Each week the message will come from the chapters covered in that week. We also plan to use these chapters as our focus in our fortnightly connect groups.

i chose not to use a Logos reading plan as I didn't want to just go from Matt to Rev, so I effectively created 11 consecutive reading plans to cover the entire NT in 10 months.

As a Pentecostal church, I felt we needed to give the Word a bit more priority than has been the norm in the past. Since April, I have preached through the first 10 chapters of John's gospel. It has been a refreshing season for us, and only once did I need to deviate from my prepared notes - and that was this past Sunday when I felt the Holy Spirit prompt me to speak on Rom 8, from about verse 18

In 2012 we encouraged each member of the church to read through the Bible using a Chronological reading plan. Each week's sermon came from one of the passages read by the congregation the previous week. Here is a link to our preaching schedule

When all else fails [Like your name was not on the schedule but no one else showed up] open a lectionary and the Treasury of David – instant sermon notes

Yes.

Yes.

I am in the "Baptist" stream of things. But I try to be very aware of where the RCL is "at."

And once I have planned things out, THEN it is very easy to say "OK, we now need to change this up, because..., etc"

[So I guess that would be a "both-and" approach?]

Thanks for asking.Smile
