We value both what has been handed on to us from previous generations of Christians, as well as new resources from the current generation. So our Sunday liturgy reflects a basic pattern that Christians have followed for many centuries.
Within this pattern multiple generations of music and text interplay. We find that over time this pattern becomes the pattern of our lives as we strive to follow Christ. We gather with others, welcoming strangers and friends alike. We welcome the Word of God to mold and shape our lives. We receive forgiveness of our sins in Holy Communion. We are sent into our daily lives, to fulfill our various vocations in ways consistent with who we are in Christ.
We see worship as not just entertainment; it involves the full, conscious, active
participation of the entire assembly. It addresses us as whole persons, who see, touch, think, and feel. Art, colored vestments, movement, music: all of these and more play a role in engaging the whole person with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
