Liturgy includes the standard texts (e.g., the Kyrie, Creed, Sanctus, Agnus Dei, etc.) that have been handed down over the centuries. The liturgy provides a consistency to worship. One of the most important aspects of liturgical worship is repetition. Through weekly repetition of basic, Gospel-centered texts from Holy Scripture, we learn the fundamental teachings of the Christian faith. The liturgy and hymns serve as building blocks for a lifetime of receiving God's gifts through Word and Sacrament.
The outline below follows the Lutheran Service Book, Divine Service Two.
