Worship

Worship at The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Christ the King is perhaps better described as Divine Service. Divine Service is a loose translation of the word used by our German forefathers, Gottesdienst (God's Service). Gottesdienst confesses that, in the worship service, it is God who serves us with His gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation in Jesus Christ. Therefore, our worship is always Christ-centered and cross-centered, and never man-centered. In our worship we employ liturgies and rites that stand within the historic western and catholic (universal) tradition. The Holy Eucharist is celebrated at every Saturday night and Sunday morning Divine Service and on Festival Days when they are observed. Confessing that Christ is present in His body and blood for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of faith, our worship is sometimes solemn and sometimes jubilant, always reverent, and never stuffy. We are a family of faith, the body of Christ, the Church gathered with angels, and arcangels and all the company of heaven around God and the Lamb on His throne. Come and join us in receiving a foretaste of the heavenly feast to come!
