In this service, we contemplate the great mystery of true God becoming true man, and we take a look at the response Jesus’s own mother had to such a wondrous revelation. Our Prelude is a setting of a wonderful hymn whose text is one of the oldest in our tradition: “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.” This setting for trumpet and piano by our very own R. Christopher Teichler beautifully sets these rich Christological […]

Sunday Service – October 5, 2014

14.10.05 CTK Service (General explanation of how we order our services.)

This revelation of God is as widespread as the heat of the sun–no one is left without a knowledge of God (see Romans 1:19-21). This is reason for praise! Adoration We do just that with our hymn of adoration, “This is My Father’s World.” This hymn continues to emphasize the […]
