LCMS Lectionary

These are the readings that follow the three-year lectionary of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod as described in the LSB hymnal. Note that not all LCMS churches follow this schedule so check with your church leaders to confirm what readings they use. The LCMS lectionary is based on the Revised Common Lectionary but with some changes. Read more about the lectionary at LCMS.org.
