What To Expect

What To Expect

Our way of worship is both historical and liturgical. In fact, many sections of the worship service are thousands of years old. For example, the Aaronic benediction, the placing of God‘s holy name on God‘s people, dates all the way back to the time of Moses. Indeed, most of the psalms were written one thousand years before the birth of Christ and were most certainly used by Jesus. Therefore, our worship connects us with all the saints and angels who have come before.

     Our way of worship is not centered on man but rather it is centered on Christ. Christ alone is the object of our worship and devotion. Our worship, is not intended to please the individual’s emotion, intellect, will, or personal experience. But rather, when God is glorified we are most certainly edified.

     Our way of worship is called the “Divine Service” because it is here, in the Divine Service that Christ our Lord serves us through His Word and His Sacraments. It is here, that Christ comes to us. It is here, that Christ speaks to us.  It is here, that we receive the forgiveness of sins in the holy absolution and all the present blessings of salvation in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

     In short, our traditional way of worship teaches the faith handed down to us throughout the ages and does so in an orderly fashion. Therein, we find a tremendous blessedness each and every time we worship.
