Dear friends,


In recent years, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has been enriched by the recurring “Institute on Liturgy, Preaching and Church Music.”  These events have provided essential educational opportunities, worship experiences, and connections to all those in the LCMS engaged in presiding, preaching, and making music.  Originally, the LCMS Commission on Worship was engaged in planning a similar event for 2011; however, in light of Synod restructuring, including the elimination of the commission, and significant personnel changes at the International Center, it has been determined that this event will not take place.  It is our desire that by working with the Synod’s agencies, schools, and seminaries we will be able to revitalize this event within the next triennium.


Meanwhile, with support from Concordia University Nebraska, St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, NE has designed a similar worship conference to be held in July 2011 for pastors and church musicians on worship-related topics. In order to learn more about this event please visit www.seward2011.org


With God’s richest blessings,
