Developing Dynamic, Authentic Worship
February 9, 2019
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Worship is at the core of what it means to be the church. In the Lutherans Confessions, the church is defined as the gathering of believers where the gospel is proclaimed and the sacraments are administered. That happens in worship! In the ELCA resource, Worship Care: A Guide for Reflection and Connection, the statement is made . . . our promised land is worship. As Lutheran Christians, we are born in the holy waters of baptism, formed for faithful living, fed by the Word and the Meal, and at last, forgiven and freed, we go in peace to serve Christ’s name. Worship is both where we begin and where we end up.
During this workshop participants will:
Gain a deeper understanding of the why, what and “hows” of worship
Receive resources and tools for worship planning
Develop a plan to help enhance worship in their own congregations
