Worship at Reformation


     Worship at Reformation

     The structure of the liturgies at each service is rooted in the historic mass of the Lutheran Church. The 11:00 a.m. liturgy incorporates music written in the late 20th century and early 21st centuries supported by Reformation’s instrumental ensemble.

     The worship of God is at the heart of our life together at Reformation Church. When we come together to worship, we offer our adoration, praise and thanksgiving to God, who made known God’s love for us by assuming our humanity in the person and ministry of Jesus Christ, who lived, died and rose so that we might be at peace with God and with one another. Worship brings us in contact with God’s Good News that points out to us where we have not measured up, but assures us of God’s forgiveness and offers us hope of living our life in accordance with God’s will. When we gather for worship, we experience God’s love when we receive in Bread and Wine the Body and Blood of Christ for the forgiveness of our self-centered manner of living.

     All the activities, events, and ministries flow from the one essential core of the Church – worshiping God. At Reformation, our worship follows the historic Christian liturgy of the Mass (as defined in the Augsburg Confession, Article 24) – the gathering of God’s people to celebrate God’s love.

     When you visit Reformation, you see that there are many people involved in support of the Mass – assisting ministers, lectors, acolytes, ushers, choirs, and clergy. But, no matter the form of our worship, it is always Gospel centered. We focus on the redeeming life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

     We look forward to worshiping with you and lifting our hearts and voices in praise, prayer and thanksgiving together.
