Join Us on Sundays for Our Current Series on Worship!
The word "liturgy" literally means "work of the people" and "work on behalf of the people." It thus describes both Christ's work as our Great High Priest and the responsive work of God's people here in the Church. We will be having four weeks on the topic of worship looking at several Psalms as the preaching texts. Worship is a wide and varied subject, so this series will certainly not be exhaustive or even comprehensive in any way. The motivation for this series is preparation for implementing the new Anglican Church in North America's 2019 Book of Common Prayer. We will begin using the new liturgy at all three services on December 1st (Advent 1).
Book Recommendation for this Series:
Worship is intentionally formational and helps us grow as disciples. Our routines, patterns, observances, shape the ways we celebrate being believers. This is why the importance of worship on Sunday and everyday in our homes is listed on our Discipleship Pathway.
The Book of Common Prayer is the Bible arranged for worship. Download the new BCP here and incorporate this as you worship at home, either into your daily quiet time or as a family. See page reference below for daily prayer times depending on which time of day you choose:
Morning Prayer - begins on page 11
Evening - begins on page 41
You can read Scriptures listed on page 761 or select a Scripture reading of your choice.
