Words of Our Lord
The Lord’s Supper is distributed at the altar rails in a continuous flow. Both pulpit and lectern sides come forward at the same time. Beginning at the center of the rail, please take the next available place at the rail, moving around to the wall behind the altar, allowing for space between you and others as you are comfortable. Both the chalice (cleansed with alcohol-soaked purificators) and individual cups are available. After communing, please return to your seat by the side aisles.
Choral Distribution “Mary’s Song”
Arranged James Marriott
My soul now magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has done great things for me, and holy is His name. He fills the hungry with good things, but the rich He sends away empty. He lifts up the poor and the lowly, and humbles the proud of heart. He hears the cry of His people, and sends the promised Savior. His mercy endures forever, His kingdom shall not end!
Distribution Hymn LSB 384 “Of the Father’s Love Begotten”

Concerning the Divine Service
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on our campus in the confession and glad confidence that our Lord Jesus, as He says, gives His very body and blood under the bread and wine for us Christians to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sin. In joyful obedience to the clear teaching of our Lord, those are invited to His table who trust His words, repent of all sin, set aside any refusal to forgive, and forgive as He forgives us. Because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and so are unable to receive the Sacrament, are invited to meditate on God’s Word in the distribution hymns and pray for the day when divisions will have ceased.
This service of Holy Communion is hosted by Peace Lutheran Church, St. Louis, Rev. Jon Furgeson, Senior Pastor.
The Seminary community gathers for daily worship at 9:35 a.m. Monday through Friday, when classes are in session, in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. During our daily chapel services, we rejoice in receiving the gifts that God gives us in His Word and Sacraments. The worship schedule generally follows the orders of service from the Lutheran Service Book (LSB). Holy Communion is distributed each Wednesday and is sponsored by a Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod congregation.
The public is invited to attend chapel services in person or watch via live stream.
