Wait no longer––the 2018-2019 Planning Calendar is here. This has become another tradition, and thanks to all of you who have inquired whether I would be offering this again. Below you will find links to download the calendar as a pdf (which will retain the formatting) or a Word (docx) document to be able to type in your own information.
As always, the calendar begins in June 2018 and ends in August 2019. So all your planning for the 2018-19 program year at your church can be noted in one location. Only Sundays are listed, accompanied by the lectionary readings, an area to fill in any special church events, typical civic or ecumenical events (like Memorial Day), and room for notes such as VBS planning, baptisms, special services, etc.
For those who find this calendar helpful, you may also be interested in a new resource that is currently available for Year B (which goes through November 2018 called Planning for Rites and Rituals: Year B. Here you will find a handy planning guide for worship and formation with explanation of lectionary themes, ideas for the day, and much more. Year C (2018-2019) will be available in July 2018.
