At Tapestry, we have used the materials from Touchstones for about four years. The discussion guide helps to seamlessly bring the worship theme into our small group ministry efforts, and the worship materials are invaluable to our worship team on the Sundays when I am not preaching.
So far the services have been great. I am delighted by the depth of the study and conversations among the service teams. And even people who haven't prepared a service are coming in with stories to tell about how new insights or direct use of something they learned.

Our congregation is very small and many are elderly and not on the computer much it seems. However, I do know that many in our congregation have expressed great satisfaction with the Touchstone services and the material. Many have commented on being inspired after reading the material. Personally, I have been so inspired as to write my own reflections for a Touchstone service. The Touchstone materials are wonderful!
We have been using Touchstones for 4 years. When our Coordinator of Ministry or guest ministers are not preaching, our Lay Leaders lead the services. One week our minister was ill and could not preach. I found out on Wednesday night and went right to Touchstones to find a sermon to read as well as a reading. The congregation was pleased with the sermon and the whole service. We also use a component of Touchstones for our monthly Covenant Group and we have enjoyed the topics.
