Importance of Worship
Worship is central to the life and mission of Good Shepherd. Through the liturgies of the church, we are united in celebration, engaged in thoughtful conversation and empowered through faith to be sent out in mission in daily life. The liturgies ground us in our Christian and Lutheran roots, while demonstrating practical relevance for today's world. While it is traditional, it has a contemporary style that provides a blended worship experience for people of all ages.
The word "liturgy" comes from the Greek word for "public service" sometimes called "the work of the people of God." A liturgy is a set order of worship used by "liturgical churches" such as Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran churches all over the world. The liturgy is divided into four major parts: Gathering, Word, Meal, and Sending.
