The heart of worship is the Good News of forgiveness and salvation in Jesus Christ.
The Good News is proclaimed in Word and Sacrament through the confession and forgiveness of sins, preaching, music, the liturgy and through Baptism and Holy Communion, and by our participation in national and local outreach ministries.
