The Presentation

of Our Lord

On Tuesday, February 2, 2016

 

On Tuesday, February 2nd we celebrate The Presentation of our Lord at 11:45 am in the chapel with Holy Eucharist.  This feast day revolves around a prophecy in Luke 2:34-35 that relates a stirring story about Christís ministry.  It says he will be spoken against, and that he will cause the rise and fall of many.  Honor God this day for the wisdom in this prophecy.



The Transfiguration

of Our Lord

 

On Sunday, February 7, 2016

 

The Last Sunday in Epiphany, Sunday, February 7th, is the Transfiguration of Our Lord.  On this day we behold the splendor of Christ surrounded by the glory of God. 

    Study Luke 9:28-36 to learn more about the time when Moses and Elijah appeared to Jesus, and the mysterious cloud from which Godís voice tells us, ďThis is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!Ē

 

 





 

 

 

Worship

         We worship in the ancient, historical patterns that Christians have handed down through the centuries.  We celebrate the Lord's Supper at both of our liturgies on Sunday mornings, and on Wednesdays, every week of the year.  This is the way Christ wanted us to remember him on the Lord's Day.

 

       Our prayer together is always liturgical, following the historical forms  of the Church.  We read Holy Scriptures as they are appointed in the Lectionary.  The sermon explains those readings in terms of the Law and Gospel.  In this we rely on Martin Luther's (1483-1546) understanding of Christ's mission and life.

        

       Our hymns and choral music reinforce the Scriptures read, proclaimed and prayed in our worship.  This supports the solemnity of our praise to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Historical vestments and traditional rituals also contribute to the richness of worship.  All our corporate worship is offered within the consecrated walls of our church which is deemed God's holy and sacred house of prayer.
