Worship at Our Saviour's
The worship of God is at the core of our life together at Our Saviour’s. We gather to worship, offer our praise, and thanksgiving to God, who “emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:7-8, NRSV)
When we gather to worship, we hear and connect with the Good News of God’s love for us made known in Jesus’ birth, death, resurrection and ascension. We are assured of God’s love and forgiveness. We experience God’s love and forgiveness when we receive in Bread and Wine the Body and Blood of Jesus.
Our worship follows the historic Christian mass, as defined by the Augsburg Confession, Article 24 in the Book of Concord of 1580. The 10:30 a.m. liturgy is a blend of music from the past and the present. God speaks to us “in many and various ways” (Hebrews 1:1) and our worship reflects a diversity in musical styles. The liturgy is supported by ensembles within and outside of our worship community.
When you worship at Our Saviour’s, you will see many people involved in support of the liturgy – assisting ministers, lectors, acolytes, ushers, choir, and clergy. But, no matter the form of our worship, it is always Gospel-centered. We proclaim the Good News through Christ’s redeeming life, death, and resurrection.
We look forward to worshipping with you in praising and giving thanks to our God who claimed us and redeemed us through Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension.
