stands at the center of our life of faith
Through God’s word, water, bread and prayer. We are nurtured in faith and have sent out into the world.
At St. Paul Lutheran Church, all worship is liturgical.
|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. All we do in worship finds its' focus on giving thanks and praise to the Triune God.|
|Liturgy is the 'work of the people' and is based on 'the mass.' There is structure, a rhythm to what we do. 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.|
