Worship is central to our life in God and our life together. These things we do and say turn us and center us to live a different kind of life: a life that is focused on serving God and serving neighbor.
From the ELCA: "Connected with and central to everything we do, worship unites us in celebration, engages us in thoughtful dialogue and helps us grow in faith. It grounds us in our Christian and Lutheran roots, while demonstrating practical relevance for today’s world."
For those of you who might feel lost during worship or do not understand why we do what we do: do not hesitate to ask someone sitting near you or ask the pastor questions after worship.

Liturgy Notes for Epiphany
During the Time after Epiphany (through Transfiguration Sunday (February 11)), our liturgy is from ELW Setting II. Setting II was composed by Marty Haugen in 2004 and revised for Renewing Worship in 2006. ELW Setting II was designed primarily for piano (and other instruments) but works well on the organ.
About the Epiphany and Transfiguration Eucharistic Prayer
Our Eucharistic Prayer during Epiphany and on Transfiguration Sunday is based on the 1599 Epiphany hymn "Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern." Honored as the Queen of Chorales and translated as "O Morning Star, how fair and bright!" (ELW 308), it was written and composed by Philipp Nicolai.
