This study proposes to document how the Common Service came to be adopted first by the English Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Missouri and Other States and then by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Missouri, Ohio and other States, and to show how extensive the use of this order has been between the years 1912, the date the first official English hymnal which included the Common Service was published by the Missouri Synod, and 1941, the year in which the 1940 revision of The Lutheran Hymnal was published.
