Christian Service Members' Handbook

When Christian Service Members are called to duty, this uniform pocket-sized faith and worship resource helps them take God's Word with them wherever they are sent.  The content of this handbook was developed by a working group of WELS and ELS Veterans and called workers with the deployed Service Member in mind. Lutheran Military Support Group, WELS Military Services, and Northwestern Publishing House provided development and funding support for the project.

Christian Service Members will appreciate the prayers for specific military situations, morning and evening devotional orders, Luther's Small Catechism, selections of Scripture with a topical index, and hymns from Christian Worship with guitar chords and musical notation. This is a welcome companion to the Christian Service Member to support them in their faith walk, especially when away from their home congregation.
In this video, Pastor Jason Hacker, a former LMSG Board member, shares information about the Christian Service Member Handbook and the importance of registering with WELS Military Services.
