We've recently received several requests from our customers about including The Great O Antiphons of Advent in Lutheran Service Builder. Knowing that they start on December 17th, our team hustled and added them just in time.
Inserting a Rite into a Service
Lutheran Service Builder 2.0 and the new, online version of Lutheran Service Builder have both made it easy to place a rite within a worship setting. Now, for users of the online Lutheran Service Builder, this task has gotten even easier!
Adding LetUsPray Prayers in Lutheran Service Builder
LetUsPray is a weekly prayer litany published by the LCMS for both the three-year lectionary series and one-year lectionary series. Written to be used during the Prayer of the Church in the Divine Service, LetUsPray assists the congregation in its worship life. The prayers not only add variety through their use as a Proper, but also bring the worshiper back to the assigned readings for the day.
New Feature: Export Presentations to MediaShout 6
Projecting a slide deck during a worship service is not an easy thing to do. The slides need to have the right information, the timing of the presenter has to be spot on, and the design needs to be attractive and readable. For the times when a PowerPoint just isn’t enough, you can now export your service presentation to MediaShout 6 from the new, online Lutheran Service Builder.
Creating Custom Templates for Worship Elements
My Templates is a list of templates that can be applied to readings, psalms, prayers, and other elements in the bulletin and presentation views to change the responsorials and various speaking parts. The templates allow you to save the responsorials’ formats for future use.
How to Use the New Service Plan View
Planning a service typically doesn’t start with creating a bulletin or a presentation slide deck. In most congregations, it starts with the lectionary, and the plan expands from there. The new Lutheran Service Builder introduces the concept of service plans, a high-level view of a service that can be determined days, weeks, or months in advance.
