CHICAGO – The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) is planning for its upcoming Institute on Liturgy, Preaching, and Church Music conference, and is inviting Lutheran Church–Canada members to participate. This year’s event takes its cue from the upcoming Reformation anniversary with the theme “The Just Live by Faith—Make this Plan in Sermon, Service, Song.” It will take place at Concordia University Chicago (CUC) from July 25-28, 2017.

The triennial event offers pastors, church musicians, and all who are passionate about the Church’s worship an opportunity to be refreshed in Word, song, and prayer together with opportunities to grow in skills that enhance the joy of the people of God in the reception of His gifts. In addition to three keynote addresses, participants will enjoy daily study of the Word (featuring CUC President Daniel Gard), daily prayer services, two Divine Services (with new arrangements of Setting Five by Jacob Weber and Jonathan Kohrs, with LCMS President Matthew Harrison preaching the opening service and Dr. Gard the final one), a concert by the National Lutheran Choir from Minneapolis, a hymn festival featuring the hymns of Martin Luther, numerous breakout sessions for pastors and church musicians plus many others on general worship topics, and exhibitors with all kinds of wares and services.

Registration will open mid-March via the LCMS’ website at www.lcms.org. Meanwhile, for more information, contact the LCMS at 1-888-843-5267 or infocenter@lcms.org. [Note: Registration for the conference is now open.]
