Worship Throughout the Year

National Baptist Convention of America

Observance of the Christian year has greatly increased in the National Baptist Convention of America, Inc. during the past twenty years. A growing number of well-trained pastors, educational resources offered by the denomination, and innovative use of art forms have all been instrumental in overcoming the historic Baptist resistance to such observance.

Presbyterian Church (USA)

Presbyterians have been gradually recovering the Christian year and most congregations now observe at least Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. Observance frequently takes the form of family-centered activities, study programs, and a wide variety of artistic and cultural expression.

Presbyterian Church in America

The sermon remains central to worship in the Presbyterian Church in America, and selection of texts is determined by the minister’s choice rather than a church year lectionary. While it is customary to preach on seasonal topics at Christmas and Easter, freedom from mandatory observance of the Christian year continues to be stressed and no churches are known to follow it.

$url = $_GET['q'];

Progressive National Baptist Convention

Churches in the Progressive National Baptist Convention follow a worship calendar reflecting the African-American experience of God as liberator and sustainer, rather than the conventional Christian year. Annual observances include Christmas and Easter, but most Sundays are designated for focus on aspects of the church’s ministry and role in society.

Reformed Church in America

Though heir to the Calvinist Reformation which eliminated worship practices not specified in Scripture, the Reformed Church in America has in recent decades turned toward fuller usage of the Christian year. Increasingly, congregations are discovering that the liturgy, music, symbols, and education connected with the church year do not threaten the primacy of Scripture but dramatize the biblical story and help connect faith to all aspects of human experience.

<?php
global $user;
$url = $_GET['q'];
//If it's a node full view
if (preg_match("/^node\/([0-9]+)$/", $url, $matches) || preg_match("/^comment\/reply\/([0-9]+)$/", $url, $matches)) {
$node_id = $matches[1];
$content = node_load($node_id);
if ($content->type == "premium_content") {
//for registered users
//Set the reference to this premium content to take the user back to the same article after successful checkout
$_SESSION['pre_checkout_premium_page'] = request_uri();

$message = 'Full text is available to premium subscribers only. You may subscribe here and start accessing premium content right away!';

if ($user->uid > 0) {
drupal_set_message($message, 'error');
drupal_goto('premium_content_subscription');

drupal_set_message($message . '

drupal_goto('user/register');
}
}
}

Reformed Episcopal Churches

The Reformed Episcopal Church has always used The Book of Common Prayer to guide worship life. However, the extent to which congregations have observed the church year outlined in the prayer book has varied. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in fuller observance of the church year, motivated by commitment to following scriptural insight concerning worship.

<?php
global $user;
$url = $_GET['q'];
//If it's a node full view
if (preg_match("/^node\/([0-9]+)$/", $url, $matches) || preg_match("/^comment\/reply\/([0-9]+)$/", $url, $matches)) {

if ($content->type == "premium_content") {
//for registered users
//Set the reference to this premium content to take the user back to the same article after successful checkout

Roman Catholic Churches

Practice of the church year, which has developed over centuries in the Roman Catholic tradition, underwent major revision as a result of the Second Vatican Council. The changes were designed to recover the primacy of the “paschal mystery” of Christ’s death and resurrection in both of the major cycles, the Christological and the sanctoral.

<?php
global $user;
$url = $_GET['q'];
//If it's a node full view

Salvation Army

Worship in the Salvation Army does not include sacraments or observance of the traditional church year. Salvationists regard these practices as unnecessary to the life of consecration to God, experienced through the inward power of the Holy Spirit.

$url = $_GET['q'];
//If it's a node full view

Southern Baptist Convention Churches

Observance of the Christian year has been on the increase in the Southern Baptist Convention since the 1960s. Civic and denominational calendars have greatly influenced Southern Baptist worship in the past, but many congregations are turning toward the Christian year because of the vivid way it involves the worshiper in the biblical narrative and deepens spiritual life. It also provides an especially meaningful context for the ordinance of believer’s baptism.

$url = $_GET['q'];
//If it's a node full view

//for registered users
//Set the reference to this premium content to take the user back to the same article after successful checkout
$_SESSION['pre_checkout_premium_page'] = request_uri();

$message = 'Full text is available to premium subscribers only. You may subscribe here and start accessing premium content right away!';

if ($user->uid > 0) {
drupal_set_message($message, 'error');
drupal_goto('premium_content_subscription');

drupal_goto('user/register');

United Church of Christ

The Christian year structures worship in the United Church of Christ. Because its themes mirror a full range of human experience, practice of the Christian year enables worshipers to unite more fully with Christ and the community of faith.
