Finally, a priceless tool for planning worship has been created and is available for free. It is a very powerful Google spreadsheet that is available here. You will need to make a copy of the Google spreadsheet for yourself to become an administrator who can edit the sheet. Also note, all the features, functions, and calculations may or may not work perfectly if exported to Excel format.
With this tool you can do things such as:
- Plan for every part of worship
- Track usage in worship of things like hymns
- Share your planning with others
