What to Expect

Our worship style is traditional and liturgical.  We project each element of the Order of Service onto a screen for all to see.  Our worship Orders of Services and hymns are taken from Lutheran Service Book published by Concordia Publishing House.

As most churches move to non-traditional styles of worship, we feel at Christus Rex we are offering people the opportunity to worship in the traditional style vetted over centuries of use.  There are elements of traditional worship which date back to the time of the Psalms, in particular King David!  As the Apostle Paul wrote in 1Co14:33 - for God is not a God of confusion, but of peace (NASB).

How is it decided on what to preach each Sunday?

Christus Rex follows what is called a "three-year lectionary series".  A lectionary series is a prearranged series of readings from the Old Testament, Psalms, New Testament Epistle, and one of the four Gospels.  These readings are coordinated with each other and from week to week.  The three-year series spends time in Matthew the first year, Mark during the second year, and Luke the third year.  The Gospel of John is sprinkled in throughout the three-year cycle.  Visit our Synod website to learn more about the lectionary and to download the lectionary series for the current year.

The sermon on each Sunday is taken from one of four listed lectionary readings for the day (OT, Psalms, Epistle, Gospel).  Hymns are chosen to match up with the sermon text chosen for consideration on each day.
