Category Archives: Lutheran Order of service

The Lutheran Church in Southern Africa publishes the Lutheran order of service for each Sunday of the Church year with appropriate propers, readings and a sermon in both isiZulu and seTswana. This is done with the ongoing help of Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD, who has translated sermons from various pastors of the LCSA, who send their sermons to him for translation into either of those two languages. The Lutheran Heritage Foundation helps the LCSA to distribute these orders of worship as hard-copies too and if you are interested please let us have your name and address, so that we can post them to you regularly.
