What to Expect

What may you expect when you worship at Zion?

You may expect something that sounds and feels different from the rest of life. That’s because Zion’s worship is liturgical. It uses the ancient pattern of worship, called liturgy, that Christians have used for over 1,000 years. What is the liturgy like?

It’s unlike anything else. It’s simple but deep. It rings with the Word of God, and it gathers the prayer of the people. It has room for every emotion, but it beats with the promise of the Resurrection. It centers on Jesus Christ, proclaimed in Scripture and truly present in His Supper.

Different worshipers will have different reactions to the liturgy. Perhaps it will move you, or perhaps it will mystify you. Like a good friend, it can take time to understand and appreciate. This much is sure: the liturgy will always present you with the gifts of God. Those gifts are the main thing.

Worship is God at work, giving the gifts of Jesus Christ to sinners. As He once said, “The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45). His service continues as He comes to strengthen His people in the liturgy, a foretaste of the feast to come!
