After a seven year hiatus, we are back! Building on a wonderful foundation of our Lutheran identity rooted in the liturgy, preaching, and church music, the LCMS is planning to resume the Institutes with Songs of Deliverance -- Psalms in the Great Congregation in 2024.
Unlike before, we are working to make this more of a ground up experience. We have suggested topics and we would love to hear about topics close to your heart and life within the congregation so we are asking YOU to tell us not only what you would like to hear about but what YOU can lead as a partner in this great task.
The DEADLINE for you is Sept. 15. Click on the links below and get ready for a great summer in Nebraska at Concordia (with a brand new music building!).
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod will host the 2024 Institute on Liturgy, Preaching and Church Music on July 9-12, 2024, at Concordia University, Nebraska (CUNE) in Seward, Neb.
The institute returns under the theme, “Songs of Deliverance: Psalms in the Great Congregation.” With the Psalter as its focal point, this conference will feature fresh and perennial topics on music, leadership, preaching, pastoral care, art and spiritual growth in Lutheran worship.
Participants will be able to choose from a variety of instructive and interactive sessions addressing practical topics of interest to musicians, pastors, teachers, interested laypersons and many others. We’ll also take up a challenge together: pray all 150 psalms.
More information, including how to register, will be available on this page when details are finalized.
Select from a sample list of presentation topics, or use it as inspiration for your own idea. The submission deadline is Sept. 15, 2023.
