How We Worship

We are a liturgical church. This description comes from the Greek word leiturgia which means "service." To worship liturgically means to follow a certain order of service. These orders of service may change from one to another, but they all contain certain elements which direct our focus to our Savior and what he has done for us. Check out this file for a description of how a liturgical church worships. This link will explain that worshipping liturgically does not always mean a strict and rigid adherance to one form. When we worship, we focus on God's Word and sacraments - the means he uses to bring us to faith and strengthen our faith.

As we focus on God's Word, we read portions from the Bible each week which follow the calendar of the church year. This allows us to reflect on different portions of God's Word which connect to a common theme. The themese for each service follow the salvation story from week to week.

We do welcome suggestions so we may worship our Savior in ways that connect with the people in the pews. If you have a song or hymn you'd like to sing in a worship service, please let us know. We would also appreciate your general feedback. Please take a moment to describe your recent visit to us.
