Lutheran worship is liturgical. We follow a common pattern (aka. liturgy) in our worship services - gathering; listening to the Word; meal (aka. communion); and sending. If there is no communion, we use prayers of thanksgiving as our response to God.
Within the liturgy, there is room for creativity. While every congregation follows a similar pattern, worship services can look very different. The music styles, prayers, and visual elements of the worship vary.
Generally, our congregations prepare a worship bulletin will outline the liturgy for worship, or a slideshow that guides everyone through the service.
