Lutheran Service Book

Lutheran Service Book

, but many customers who pre-ordered the hymnal received their copies several weeks earlier. So far, it seems very well received by the LCMS.

"Lutheran Service Book" is, coincidentally, one of two major Lutheran hymnals that were published almost simultaneously in the fall of 2006. "Evangelical Lutheran Worship", the new hymnal of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, was released in October 2006. The projects are in no way related.

Lutheran Service Builder

This computer program is structured in order to allow churches to easily prepare printed orders of service containing readings, hymns, and service music.
