Worship Ministry   •   The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod


Helpful resources for LCMS pastors, congregations, schools and individuals to recognize and celebrate Advent and Christmas.

 

Advent Message

“It’s Advent again, and it’s the perfect time to return to Christ, to His Word and Sacraments, and to delight in His salvation,” says Chaplain Sean Daenzer, director of Worship for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).

Our Lord will soon come again. As you prepare for this holy season, please join us for Advent and Christmas services at an LCMS congregation near you (find one at locator.lcms.org/church). In addition, there are a variety of resources below that can be used at church and with your family.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of a more challenging economic and philanthropic/fundraising environment due to inflationary pressure, not more than 12.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 10.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
