Divine Service
Authentic Christ-Centered Worship, Study, and Sometimes Just Plain Silliness!

Divine Service


We use the Common Service of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, which is a blending of Lutheran traditions from the 16th Century onwward.  At one time, nearly all the Lutherans in America, regardless of synod or denomination, used this service.  

The Lutherans purged the Western liturgy of prayers to the saints and anything that was against the Gospel of the free forgiveness of sins received through faith.  

We use two hymnals, "Lutheran Service Book" and "The Lutheran Hymnal."  We enjoy beautiful and rich hymns that have depth and meat in them.  If you visit us during the school year, you will witness young men and women raising their voices to fill the sanctuary with the praises of God, "teaching and admonishing one another in Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs." (Col. 3:16)

If you are accustomed to what is sometimes called "contemporary worship," please do not dismiss our worship as vain repetition or something to be ignored or looked down upon.  It is a beautiful service, filled with God's Word and with comfort we all need.  

A beautiful explanation of the main parts of the liturgy can be found in this article entitled "Why Go to Church?"

We hope to have recordings of our congregation singing the parts of the liturgy some time.  In the mean time, if you're in the area, please join us!
