Worship at LCOP

We offer a traditional liturgical worship service and use the ELW hymnal as the core resource for our liturgies and hymns. We do change liturgies and use other settings from The Litany to settings such as Marty Haugen's "Now the Feast and Celebration" and other alternate liturgical settings to provide variety to enhance the flow of the church year seasons. Word and Music work together to proclaim the gospel each week. Holy Communion is celebrated weekly.

We encourage members to participate fully in our worship services and there are many opportunities to serve:

  • Acolytes

  • Altar Guild

  • Assisting Ministers

  • Building Openers & Closers

  • Cantors

  • Communion Assistants

  • Crucifers

If you would like to volunteer to assist during the service, please contact the person responsible for scheduling each week or if there is no coordinator information please contact the office.

Church Committees

All members of the congregation are invited to participate in the life of the church through our committees. to join a committee please contact a member of church council to express your interest in serving.
