What’s a “lectionary”?
A lectionary is a schedule of scripture readings chosen to correspond to the church year. Along with many other protestant churches, we follow the Revised Common Lectionary – a 3-year cycle that focuses on the Gospel of Matthew the first year, the Gospel of Mark the second year, and the Gospel of Luke the third year.
Why do we use a lectionary?
Following the lectionary ensures that a wide range of biblical texts are shared during worship. We don’t have to follow it, and the pastors sometime choose a different Bible passage, such as during one of our church-wide Kerygma Bible studies when the entire congregation hears the Kerygma passages in worship.
