You know how important it is to plan meaningful, engaging worship services—especially during this season. What you don’t know is how you’re going to find the time to research dozens of websites and pull together all the prayers, music, sermon ideas, projection images, and everything else you need for an authentic encounter with God in worship.

What if all these elements were together for you in one place? What if all that help fit easily in your pocket or your purse? Welcome to Worship in a Flash. Drawing on a vast library of worship resources, Abingdon Press provides everything you need to plan worship throughout Advent and Christmas, all on a convenient USB drive with room to store your notes as you plan worship each week.

The Worship in a Flash USB drive is compatible with Windows and Macintosh formats. It includes prayers, calls to worship, litanies, benedictions, sermons, music, projection images, and more. Liturgies, prayers, sermon outlines, and other text materials are in PDF format. Images are in JPEG format.
