2008 Concordia Seminary Sunday Information Mailed

Samples of materials congregations can utilize in celebrating Concordia Seminary Sunday are in the mail to pastors throughout The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. A special bulletin insert, an adult Bible study, sermon notes, a Seminary DVD and other worship resources are available to assist pastors and congregations in observing Concordia Seminary Sunday. The mailing also included a form to order these materials free of charge from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

While Sunday, July 13, is the suggested date for the observance of Concordia Seminary Sunday, the materials are designed to be used any time throughout the year. The observance is designed to serve as an annual opportunity for congregations to emphasize the importance of forming men for service in the pastoral ministry and enlist prayer support for this activity. It also serves to inform congregations concerning the ways in which pastors are formed for ministry and to encourage congregational activity in the process of identifying, informing and encouraging future pastors. The mailing also provides pastors the opportunity to identify prospective Seminary students and pass their names along to the admissions office at Concordia Seminary.
