LCMS Worship’s Institute on Liturgy, Preaching and Church Music will be held this year July 25–28, 2017 at Concordia University Chicago. This 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. This year’s Institute takes its cue from the upcoming Reformation anniversary with the theme: The Just Live by Faith—Make This Plain in Sermon, Service, Song.
In addition to three keynote addresses, we’ll have opportunity for daily study of the Word (featuring CUC President Dr. 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.
