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.

The Annunciation

of Our Lord

On Wednesday, March 25th, the Feast of the  Annunciation of Our Lord will be celebrated in the chapel at 11:45 am with Holy Eucharist.  At this liturgy we will honor the angel Gabriel's announcement to Saint Mary that she will be the Mother of Our Lord.  Prepare for this feast of the Church with the following prayer: 

Pour your grace into our hearts, O Lord, that we, who have known the incarnation of your son, Jesus Christ, announced by an angel, may by his cross and Passion be brought to the glory of his resurrection:  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.              Amen.
