February 2020 WELS Connection – New Hymnal Preview

It’s been 495 years since the first Lutheran hymnal was published—it had just eight hymns. As God has blessed us with new music over the centuries, the hymnal has expanded and adapted for new communities. That process continues, with a new WELS hymnal coming out later next year. A preview of the hymnal is available now, leading up to Advent 2021 when the full hymnal—along with 17 volumes of companion materials—will be released.  View WELS Connection archive.
