WELS Hymnal Project

Seven Hymnal Project Subcommittees Filled

One of the goals for the WELS Hymnal Project’s September 2013 executive committee meeting was to nominate members for each of the project’s seven subcommittees (hymnody, psalmody, rites, scripture, literature, technology, and communications).

During the ensuing months, the chairmen of those committees have been extending invitations to the nominated individuals. We are pleased to announce that, in advance of our second executive committee meeting (February 26,27, 2014), each of the seven subcommittees has been filled.

Work has already begun to get all of the subcommittee members familiar with the tools and resources the members of the project will be using to complete their work. Several subcommittees have been further divided into working groups and have begun to tackle the work that is in front of them. One of the goals for the upcoming executive committee meeting will be to develop an overall timeline for the completion of the various aspects of this project.

We are thankful both to the Lord of the Church who continues to pour out great and diverse gifts on our church body and to these individuals for their willingness to serve. Please continue to keep the members of the WELS Hymnal Project in your prayers.

A list of the members of each of the seven subcommittees can be found on the project website.
