ELW Dedication: Sunday, March 14

The Evangelical Lutheran Worship book (red) is a resource including several settings of liturgy, many new and long-loved hymns, every psalm translated anew, and the entire Luther’s Small Catechism.  It was designed to be used both at home and in worship spaces.  We dedicated these books on Sunday, March 14, 2010.

The Lutheran Book of Worship (green) has been retired with thanksgiving and will be available, starting next Sunday, in the narthex.  If you donated an LBW in honor/memory of a loved one, please take that one.  Undesignated LBWs are for anyone who would like it.  Our blue hymnal supplement books, With One Voice, will be kept at church and used for various non-sanctuary worship settings (meetings, retreats, etc).

Thanks to all who so generously donated these new worship books.  We pray that they will serve us well as we continue to glorify God for many years to come!

(And sincere thanks to our photographer, Jack,  for capturing these special moments of worship.  This kind of thing only happens every 30 years or so…)

  1. Thank you for this wonderful report on the hymnal dedication during the worship service. The pictures are beautiful and hopefully a reminder of how we desire to glorify and praise God in our worship.
