In January, the Synod’s Board for University Education mailed to all LCMS congregations a brochure promoting “Concordia Sunday,” suggested for April 26.
The special observance, which may be held that day or any Sunday of the year, is designed to call attention to the Synod’s 10 Concordia colleges and universities, their programs of study, and the various professional church careers that are available to students.
The special Sunday offers an opportunity for congregations to recognize and support the work being carried out by professors, staff, and students at those institutions.
The Synod’s Concordia University System (CUS) schools are in Ann Arbor, Mich.; Austin, Texas; Bronxville, N.Y.; Irvine, Calif.; Mequon, Wis.; Portland, Ore.; River Forest, Ill.; St. Paul, Minn.; Selma, Ala.; and Seward, Neb.
The mailing includes a form congregations can use to order free resource materials to help them celebrate “Concordia Sunday.”
Those materials include:
Many of the resources may be downloaded from the Board for University Education Web site at www.lcms.org/universities (click on “Downloads” at left).
For more information about “Concordia Sunday” or the Synod’s colleges and universities, call (800) 248-1930, Ext. 1252, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
