American Methodist Worship

Lord's Day worship in a Methodist congregation consisted of invariable components (“ordinary”) as well as variable components (“propers”). Invariable components that are spoken in the language or particular vocabulary of the people may include prayer, scripture readings, psalmody, preaching, creeds, and benedictions. Variable components may be linked with the Christian year, the denominational calendar, or civil and local celebrations. The selection of ordinary and propers, along with interpretations of the significance of Sunday, contribute to what it means to be Methodist on the Lord's Day.

Keywords:   benedictions, Christian year, creeds, denominational calendar, language, prayer, preaching, psalmody, scripture, Sunday
