Zion-Friedheim Evangelical Lutheran Church
The following order of service was written by Dr. Martin
Luther in 1528. The Latin was
replaced with the language of the people, and hymns are used to replace some of
the spoken parts of the service, thus enabling the congregation to participate
in the service.
The reading of the Gospel lesson in front of the people
represents the Gospel going out to the ends of the earth.
