   Each Sunday we meet to worship God in a manner acceptable to Him, to be strengthened in faith by hearing Christ proclaimed from the Scriptures, and to be sent into the world to bear witness through lives that have been transformed by the gospel.

     At Calvin we understand worship to be a meeting between God and His covenant people. Therefore, our liturgy is structured around a covenantal dialogue between God and the congregation. God speaks, the people respond. God speaks again, the people respond. It is not just that we are preforming for God, but that He is meeting us, feeding us with His presence and word, comforting and admonishing us to fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

   We follow a liturgy that corresponds to the ordo salutis (“order of salvation”), which leads us from Guilt to Grace to Gratitude. This brings a symmetry and structure to the liturgy and moves us from confession to praise, then to faith, then to awe and wonder, and finally to humility as we realize that we are in the presence of the Living Christ, who comes to feed from His Word.

"Come unto Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your soul, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
