A Community at Worship is a very practical book that outlines Chris and Dan’s thinking about worship renewal. They guide the reader through a process of discerning a congregation’s unique worship norms.
The Community at Worship year-long experience is a project of A Place in the Conversation done in partnership with the Central Union Association of American Baptist Churches of PA and DE.
