For Lutherans, worship stands at the center of our life of faith. Through God’s word, water, bread and prayer we are nurtured in faith and sent out into the world. 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.
I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
Each week offers a different message, but follows a basic pattern for worship. We gather. We encounter God’s word. We share a meal at the Lord’s table. And we are sent into the world. But we do not think about worship so much in terms of what we do. Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In worship service at Christ Lutheran, you’ll experience rich traditions in liturgy and song. Music is an important part of our worship. Through our singing of hymns and other songs we express our thanks to God for his wonderful salvation.
Holy Communion is celebrated in each worship service at Christ Lutheran. It is here that we receive the body and blood of Christ, a tangible gift of God’s forgiveness and loving acceptance. All baptized Christians accustomed to receiving the elements at their home church are welcome to come forward and kneel to receive Holy Communion.
