In 2002, the Synod in convention established a Committee on Worship and Music to "address learning areas such as the theology of Christian music, theology of Christian worship, church music and musicianship, church art and architecture, church drama and visual arts, as growth opportunities pertaining to sound, responsible, and meaningful Lutheran music and worship." (Resolution 02.3.07)

Helps for Reviewing Worship Materials
To help pastors and congregations make good, informed theological decisions about worship materials for use in our churches the Committee on Worship and Music suggests this link which will connect you to the LCMS Commission on Worship website for the resource Text, Music, Context. Most pastors should have a copy of this booklet. The study guide for Text, Music, Context is available for free on the website. If you wish to purchase copies of Text, Music, Context you may order them from the LCMS or contact the LCC Synod Office for more information. This is a wonderful resource to guide worship leaders in making decisions concerning songs, hymns, and liturgical pieces.
Members of the committee welcome your input, ideas, and support. Correspond with the committee through worship:@:lutheranchurch.ca.
