Welcome Back Media Kit for Congregational Use

These resources may be personalized with the local parish’s information.


This Welcome Back media kit is designed to help pastors and congregations:

  • Encourage their members to come back to church for in-person services and
  • Invite community members (and those who may have been tuned in to their livestreams) to join them in receiving the life that only Jesus can give.

The resources are designed to allow congregations to add an invitation and local details about their worship services. They can also be used to advertise the congregation or to generate opportunities for pastoral conversations in the community.

Feel free to mix and match these resources in whatever way suits your congregation best.

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 differently. 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, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
