THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS THIS YEAR: THE ONE-YEAR AND THE THREE-YEAR LECTIONARY.
PLEASE CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU ORDER THE CORRECT VERSION!
The Family Lectionary is your day-by-day guide through the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod's Sunday readings (Lectionary). It also includes many of the major feasts, festivals, and commemorations found in the Lutheran Service Book. There is a weekly hymn, memory verse, and catechism reading.
Most weeks, you will read through the following Sunday's reading (New Testament, Old Testament, and Epistle), do a family activity, and enjoy a few theological discussions as a family.
Purchasing the Family Lectionary will also give you access to printables like coloring pages, weekly bookmarks, and memory cards.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHICH TO CHOOSE, CHECK WITH YOUR PASTOR, OR CHECK YOUR BULLETIN. DURING THE LONG STRETCH OF ORDINARY TIME, THE ONE-YEAR WILL LABEL THE WEEKS ‘SUNDAYS AFTER TRINITY.’ THE THREE-YEAR WILL HAVE ‘SUNDAYS AFTER PENTECOST.’
“Prompts like ‘Fun Together’ and ‘What to look for in church this Sunday’ grab the imagination and lead to helpful reflection on God’s word and the Church’s liturgical life. Beautiful artwork and an attractive presentation entice the eye and quicken the mind.”
“[Jessie] has come up with a ’planner’ (for lack of a better term) that not only serves the family in an unabashedly Lutheran way, making use of LSB, the ESV translation, and various other resources for family worship and study, she has created a product that is exquisitely beautiful and user friendly.”
“With Family Lectionary Lutherans (young and old) will be engaging with the rhythms of the Church year in their daily lives, while growing together in faith and knowledge through time in the Word, study, conversation, singing, and other fun activities.”
