How and Why We Worship

Our Worshiping Community

As Lutherans, we understand that God’s word, prayer, wine, bread, and water nurture and sustain us as we move into the world.

All are welcome to join us for worship.

We invite you to our YouTube Channel to worship with us weekly until the pandemic has subsided enough that it is safe to return to in-person worship. Everyone can access all of our services from March 2020 to the present.

During our virtual worship service, an organ prelude begins the service. Our traditional Lutheran liturgy follows with hymn singing, readings from the Bible, a sermon, and intercessory and ecumenical prayers. The service concludes with an organ postlude on our 3 manual, 32 rank 1907 Austin organ (Opus 219). While we miss sharing Communion, it is not our practice to participate in virtual Communion.

For those familiar with Lutheran liturgy, we use the Lutheran Book of Worship, but we include all hymns, readings, and prayers in the service bulletin so no hymn book is necessary. All of our worship bulletins can be found using this link.

If you have any prayer requests please email our council president at President@firstlutheranpok.org.

We look forward to worshiping with you!
