Women's groups will find ready material for worship, reflection, and discussion in Dorothy MacNeill's collection of twenty-two quick and complete programs for the church year. 22 Ready-to-Use Programs for Women's Groups offers a user-friendly collection of complete but easily adapted programs for every season throughout the church year. The sessions guide the user through celebrations from Advent and Christmas to Easter and Pentecost, with units on women in the Bible, programs stressing affirmation and acceptance, and explorations of human emotions such as joy and loneliness. Each program is presented as a complete service and includes a call to worship, prayers, hymn suggestions, and a short reflection, as well as ideas to spark group activities and discussion. The worship and program sections can be used separately or combined in different ways to meet the needs of the user group. A Bible and hymn book are the only other texts required to enjoy the rich selection of engaging programs. Whether your gathering is a half an hour or an entire weekend, 22 Ready-to-Use Programs for Women's Groups is a welcome resource for program leaders with limited time to prepare, or for those looking for fresh ideas. A valuable addition to any church or personal library for worship planning.
