Lutheran Things

I'm looking for details on what makes a church a Lutheran church; not the theology, that's a big detail that I can easily research in the library. What I'm looking for are the little things, like what the main committees are called, and what sort of food people serve at church potlucks. Are there any liturgical things that Lutherans do that other churches don't? Do Lutherans keep any liturgical seasons that other churches don’t?

I'm especially interested in hearing from progressive Lutherans, but more conservative Lutherans are welcome to add their 2 cents.

In the interest of full disclosure, this is for a Sci-Fi story where the Episcopal Church, the United Methodist Church, and the ELCA merged into one church (the Evangelical Methodist Episcopal Church or EMEC) during the 24th Century; I want things that can be plausible remnants of Lutheran culture and practices.

Edit: Wow, thanks for all the info everyone! I'm saving this thread to my memories. I'm really greatful to everyone who contributed.
