Within the Lutheran Church the primary purpose of the worship services is the proclamation of the Gospel and the closely related topic of calling sinners to repentance. This is accomplished through confession and absolution, the reading of Scripture, Preaching, and the administering of the Sacraments. Teaching, praise, and prayer are all secondary they happen but they are not the primary purpose. It is one of the reasons why in our we tend to call them Divine Service because it is about God performing His work in our presence. In your church what is the primary purpose of the Worship service and what does worship entail?
