Worship at Messiah

Worship at Messiah brings God's people together in a celebration of God's grace through lessons, songs, preaching, and the sacrament.

  As believers, Christ is at the center of everything we do. This is especially true when
  believers gather together for worship. Without Christ, we would have no reason to gather
  for worship. We would be separated from God and each other. We would cower in shame
  in the presence of God. But Christ, our Savior, has restored our relationship with God. This
  fact brings us two-fold joy. We open our hearts to receive his saving and empowering
  gospel. We also open our arms to offer to Christ our thanks, our lives, our everything.

  This cycle of receiving from God and giving to God characterizes each of our lives. It also
  characterizes the way we worship when we gather together. To accomplish this, we use a
  form of worship that traces its roots to the apostles themselves: liturgical  worship.

  Christ is at the center of liturgical worship. Some parts of the liturgy stay the same each
  Sunday. This is to make sure that Christ is proclaimed and praised during every service.
  Some parts of the liturgy change every week. These changes are based on the appointed
  calendar of the church. This calendar makes sure that we cover the important events and
  teachings of Christ every year.
