Liturgy

Our worship gatherings follow a pattern that has guided Christian worship for centuries: the four-fold liturgy* of Gathering, Word, Table, and Sending Forth.

Here is an example of how that pattern might be applied at Artisan:

Gathering
Call to worship: a reading from Scripture or the early church
Congregational singing: two hymns or songs
Confession: a creed or confession of sin
Passing of the peace and more congregational singing
Congregational prayers
Word
Scripture readings
Sermon
Table
Celebrating Communion; prayer with Prayer Team
Sending Forth
Closing congregational songs
Offering/announcements/blessing

* Did you know? Liturgy can be defined as “the work of the people”.
