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.
