Hymnal workshops start

Pastors and church musicians are not the only ones who will benefit from 280 introductory workshops this fall for the Synod's new Lutheran Service Book, says Dr. Paul Grime, executive director of the LCMS Commission on Worship, which prepared the new worship resource along with Concordia Publishing House (CPH). The first of those workshops are being held this month.

While noting that the 280 workshops throughout the United States and Canada are "really intended for everyone," Grime said he is convinced that church secretaries would especially benefit from participating in workshops.

Explaining that secretaries are often responsible for preparing the weekly service bulletin, Grime said "they will be very interested in learning about Lutheran Service Builder, the electronic version of the hymnal. The Builder provides a powerful and easy way of fulfilling that weekly task."

For a registration fee of $20 per person, each workshop participant will receive a copy of the new hymnal and a 108-page guide with an in-depth introduction. All workshops are set for Saturdays, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m

Grime said that CPH, which began filling orders for the hymnal in August, reports that sales "have been extremely encouraging at this early stage."
