Becoming Involved in Worship

How do we build our Worship Service?

At Our Saviour's we all contribute to making worship meaningful.  The video clips below (from the excellent Augsburg Fortress 2013 series, Leading Worship Matters: A Sourcebook for Preparing Worship Leaders) show and describe some of the ways our members build our rich worship life.

  • Altar Guild is a "faith deepening experience -- a tangible manifestation of what it means to be the body of Christ."
  • Baking Communion Bread provides a time when "community-building takes place -- working together as the Body of Christ."
  • Getting Involved in Worship "...makes worship more enjoyable."
  • Telling the Story in Worship -- "We gather people together to share the common important story that is vital to who we are."
  • Worship and the Arts -- "Liturgical art grows up out of the community. It is our work for now, it speaks to us, then it goes away and then something new comes."
  • Leading Worship -- "To worship is a sacred thing.  I see the Holy Spirit at work here."
