Living Word Bulletin Series
Worship bulletins that bring the scripture to life!
Since 1946 the Brethren Press bulletin series has served congregations well by providing worship resources — focused on God’s word — and inspiring photography that challenge worshipers toward more Christlike living.
Each week a biblical text is highlighted on the cover and related to life through photography. The biblical texts are carefully selected in prayerful reading of the lectionary texts for each Sunday. Whether your congregation follows the lectionary or not, the bulletin messages are certain to add to your congregation’s worship experience.
Images have been selected to enhance the biblical message and make it come to life. These images are drawn from congregational settings, mission and service ministries, denominational gatherings, and natural settings found in God’s creation. Many of the images we choose come from Brethren photographers. Click here (PDF) to view front cover images for this year.
A cross-section of lay and clergy writers from the Church of the Brethren prepare worship resources or inspirational stories for the back page of the bulletin. These include prayers, litanies, calls to worship, meditations, and hymn suggestions. The scripture from which the cover text is drawn is also printed on the back page. (You may order bulletins without the resource piece, if you wish; however, the scripture passage is included on all bulletins.)
