Day 10 of “12 Days Of Weekend Service New Year’s Resolutions!” Today’s resolution is “Be Prepared.” If you were ever a Boy Scout, you know that their motto is “Be Prepared.” One of the scouting websites defined the phrase as meaning that “you are ready, willing, and able to do what is necessary in any situation that comes along.” It would be a great motto for church teams, as well – especially the worship and production teams. Every church should have emergency first aid kits available, but you should also have a “Worship Team Emergency Survival Kit.”


Said kit should include:

Guitar Strings – several sets of acoustic and electric

Bass Strings

Various Batteries [particularly 9volt]

A Guitar Tuner

An Extra Guitar Strap

Various ¼” Cables [including very short ones for effects]

A Capo

Several Very Small Screwdrivers And Allen Wrenches

A String Winder

Various Guitar Picks

Various Drumsticks

Spare Drumheads [and a spare snare, if possible]

An Extra Keyboard Pedal



Ideally, a church would also have a backup basic-level electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass and keyboard, along with some wired mics [SM58, etc…] in case of wireless issues. Long story short, you may not need them [and most conscientious players will bring many of these things themselves], but better safe than sorry – particularly at 8:45 on a Sunday morning.  #creativeworshipideas

Be prepared with a weekend service “first aid” kit.
