Devotions

For the congregation, suitable for the whole family

  • https://www.lcms.org/how-we-serve/mercy/health-ministry/pandemic – During this time of uncertainty, our greatest comfort is found in God’s Word. Tune in to live devotions on the LCMS Facebook page every weekday at 9 a.m. (or watch the archived videos here). These devotions, led by LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, LCMS First Vice-President Rev. Peter K. Lange, and LCMS Director of Worship Rev. Sean Daenzer, will focus on the words of comfort and promise found in Romans, Lamentations, and the four Gospels.
  • https://higherthings.org/reflections/  – “Reflections” is the daily devotional put out by Higher Things. Although mostly geared towards youth and young adults, the material is salutary for all ages.

For families with children

  • https://files.lcms.org/wl/?id=lOzhHfyshEJZnoncFxRazY2LP51gEljC – Do your children understand what the parts of the liturgy mean? Do you? Here is a short instruction on the parts of the liturgy for families to use with children under 10. Read through one or two parts and explore your hymnal. Be aware that page numbers reflect the numbering in the Lutheran Service Book (the burgundy hymnal), not The Lutheran Hymnal (the red one that we use at First Trinity).
  • https://www.mission-friends.org/materials/ – Short devotions on the catechism, focused on missionary work, intended for families of younger children (through about 4th grade). Includes a short write-up about the countries served by our LCMS missionaries along with coloring pages, simple craft ideas, and a recipe.

Lenten Devotions

Bible Studies

  • https://www.lcms.org/worship/hymn-of-the-day-studies – Hymn of the Day Studies. Give this uncertain season a soundtrack of hope. The LCMS has created brief, downloadable studies on hymns. Enjoy reflecting on the theology of these hymns and singing them with your family or by yourself.
