Every year the Concordia University System Board of Directors designates one Sunday during the month of April for the congregations of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod to celebrate Concordia Sunday.
Concordia Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate the ministries of our colleges and universities with the members of all LCMS congregations.
Concordia University Chicago recently invited Dr. Paul Maier to give an apologetics seminar entitled, “The Week that Changed the World,” in which Dr. Maier helped reinforce the historicity of the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord. The resounding effects of those events has been evident throughout the history of this institution. Concordia University Chicago has been and always will remain a university “centered in the gospel of Jesus Christ.” This coming Fall Concordia University Chicago will begin it’s sesquicentennial celebration, thanking God for 100 years in River Forest, and 150 years since the founding of Concordia in Addison, Illinois. This is 150 years of preparing men and women for service and leadership in the church and world.
Please continue to support, pray for, and hold up the ministry of Lutheran higher education on Concordia Sunday April 21, 2013. A special flyer promoting this event is available for downloading here.
Materials for Concordia Sunday (brochures, bulletin inserts, envelopes for financial support, etc.) are available from the Concordia University System office.
