Grace Episcopal Church, Oak Park, Illinois has become a model for how to engage all generations in an experiential and fully inclusive Eucharistic liturgy. The Rite Place is a 30-minute service designed for young children and their households in response to the congregation’s desire to offer welcoming worship for all ages. This book has three parts: the theology of intergenerational worship, including pastoral issues and how a church might get started to implement such a model; the use of music as an integral piece to worship as formation; and complete liturgies for Advent/Christmas/Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Maundy Thursday/ Good Friday, Easter, and the Season of Pentecost/Summer that are accessible for other congregations to use in their own settings.

Ready-to-use liturgies with music, for all seasons of the church year

Offers a practical guide for child directed, inclusive worship
