The Liturgies of Lutheran Week 2023
The Lutheran Church is a liturgical church.
Lutherans believe that the Gospel is not only good news that Jesus has saved sinners, but also a power God uses to create and strengthen faith in Jesus. Lutheran worship places the Gospel as the central focus in an order of service called the liturgy. In message and meal (Holy Communion), in specially selected Bible readings, and in carefully crafted songs, prayers and confessions, the liturgy points to Jesus as the Savior of all.
To participate in the service, follow along through these liturgies. Lutheran worship is specifically designed to include the participation of the people. We are not here to be an audience, we are here to speak and sing the Word of God to each other.
