About Worship

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.

UPCOMING LECTIONARY

26 NOVEMBER 2017 (CHRIST THE KING SUNDAY)

During the Season of Advent, our liturgy is from ELW Setting I. Setting I was published in 2006 and is comprised of movements by Robert Buckley Farlee, Thomas Pavlechko, and Mark Mummert.

Our Advent Eucharistic Prayer is based on the “O Antiphons.” Sung in medieval monasteries December 17-23 at evening prayer before and after the Magnificat, the antiphons used Old Testament images as descriptors of Christ. The first letters of the seven Latin words--Sapientia (Wisdom), Adonai (Lord), Radix Jesse (Root of Jesse), Clavis David (Key of David), Oriens (Sunrise), Rex Gentium (King of Nations), Emmanuel (God with us)–when read backwards, spell “Ero cras,” “I will be tomorrow”; that is, Christ will be here December 24. The final quatrain (“Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest”) can also serve as meal prayer in the home.
