Worship

First Lutheran Church, Greensboro, NC

We are pleased to introduce our new Traditional Worship Coordinator, Melissa Burris. Melissa began her ministry at FLC on July 28 and will serve with Billy Summers in planning worship and playing the organ/piano for our 11:15 am traditional worship service and keyboard at our 9 am contemporary worship service.  She will leads the Handbell Choir and the Children's Choir.

Be an "unsung hero" -- The extraordinarily faithful, giving folks who reliably run sound and video in our morning worship services keep technology supporting worship and enable us to send it out to shut-ins, friedns out of town, and potential visitors.  Several techs have worked 7 years straight, one doing double video duty with Shout for the last 4, and it's time to give a break to those who want it.  Please be in touch to learn more and help the team.  Men, women, youth all welcome.  Contact Andy Mitchum (286-5118,  doctormitchum@gmail.com) or talk to one of the guys Sunday morning.

WORSHIP:  SOME PRINCIPLES OF WORSHIP

Variety is used as a means of:

  • Enriching our lives and our faith
  • Meeting differing worship needs
  • Familiarizing people with our rich worship tradition

Hymnody and songs reflect our Lutheran emphasis on:

  • Congregational participation
  • A variety of styles and favorites among our membership
  • Our approach to the readings and the theme of the day.

Our concept of worship is:

  • A dynamic encounter between God and God's people
  • A participation in God's ongoing plan of salvation
  • A time when God brings gifts of forgiveness, faith, hope, love and community
  • A time when we offer ourselves to God in prayer, praise, discipleship and service
