About Worship

Worship is among the most central components of our life together. Worship life is the most visible and the most important aspect of this congregation, especially to our guests. It is in Word and Sacrament that God promises to meet us, offering us love and grace, and calling us to lives of discipleship. The Lutheran movement has long believed that it is when God’s people are gathered around Word and Sacrament that the church becomes visible.

We also consider it important to encourage strong participation from volunteer worship leaders at every worship service. This makes a very clear statement about how we understand worship. The word liturgy literally translated means the work of the people. Therefore, it is appropriate that we have a strong tradition of volunteer involvement in leading worship. In our tradition, worship is not done by the leaders and observed by the congregation. It is, literally, the work of the people. We all have a role to play when God’s people come together for worship. The presence of volunteer worship leaders helps to emphasize that belief.

In a liturgical church, there is a basic 4-fold pattern that is followed every time it assembles for worship. That pattern includes: Gathering, Word, Meal, and Sending (technically, the Brief Order for Confession and Forgiveness is a rite done in preparation for worship). Within the four movements of the ancient liturgical rite, are the various components that make up a worship service.

Liturgical churches make use of a lectionary—a series of Bible readings and prayers appointed for the various days in the church calendar. Most lectionaries are three years in length, with each year focusing on one of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark or Luke—John us used throughout the lectionary). Lectionaries appoint readings and prayers for Sunday worship, as well as for certain Festivals and Commemorations that may take place during the week.
