Worship Schedule

 

The Holy Eucharist

is celebrated on Sundays

at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

St. Paul’s Lutheran Congregation uses traditional liturgy in that the order of the mass is recognizable. The liturgy is evangelical in its wide variety of hymnody, lay leadership, and hospitality. We utilize three musical settings from Lutheran Book of Worship and two settings from With One Voice. On special occasions the choir renders chorale settings of the liturgy by a variety of composers.

Worship in the Epiphany Season

The Epiphany season focuses on making Christ known.  The season begins with the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan.  The gospel stories that we hear in worship begin revealing to the everyday person who Jesus is.  John the Baptizer, Andrew and his brother Simon, then the sons of Zebedee, and people from around Galilee begin to follow Jesus.  The good news of the kingdom is proclaimed and diseases and sicknesses are cured.  Jesus teaches on the mountain what we know at the Beatitudes and then continues on a wide range of subjects regarding kingdom life.

Our Sunday liturgies will utilize setting I from Evangelical Lutheran Worship.  We have used this musical setting before with its joyful melodic line for the Gloria.  The offertory will feature the hymn Come to the Table with its text composed by Claire Cloninger (1942) and the music by Martin J. Nystrom (1956).  We will have a good balance of hymns utilizing ones that are familiar and a few that are new to us.  The season is one of light, moving us from the brightness of the Bethlehem star to the brightness of Christ Jesus who truly is the light of the world.  Please make weekly worship a priority in 2017.

Sunday Church School is held at 9:15 a.m.  We have classes for both adults and children.

Please join us!

On very special occasions, we are joined in song by the York College Choir or by visiting soloists – voice or instrumental.
