Why Liturgy Rather Than a Worship Service of Spontaneous Prayer?
Our Sunday morning worship follows a pattern of liturgical prayer which is two thousand years old. Our liturgy helps us relate to God through confession, thanksgiving, praise, petition, intercession, and adoration. The creed reminds us of the Holy Trinity (our namesake). Confession calls us to reflect upon our sin and ask God's help to amend our ways. Eucharistic prayer reminds us that Jesus makes a covenant between God and man. Holy Communion allows us a time to partake of Jesus just as the apostles did at the Last Supper. Hymns and songs contain words and music to engage us with God in his many aspects. The lectionary of three Bible readings walks us through the entire Bible so we engage with all of scripture, and not just part of it.
