74th LCMS Kansas District ConventionJune 9-10, 2022 | Capitol Plaza Hotel, Topeka
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 Peter 2:9-10
June 2021: Our old gmail convention account has been retired. Please send convention email to the new address: KSDconvention@kslcms.org.
May 2021: The District Office sent congregations and rostered workers an updated convention mailing with a Call for Nominations and other revised documents. For congregations, the mailing also includes a “Status Sheet” listing nominations, delegate names, and assessments already received. (If anything seems amiss on your Status Sheet, please contact Tami Lierz in the President’s Office at email@example.com.) Nominations are now due by November 30, 2021.
February 16, 2021: The vast majority of LCMS congregations that participated in the vote to delay the Synod convention by a year voted in favor of the delay. As a result, the Synod convention will now be held in 2023, and our Kansas District convention will be held June 9-10, 2022. In the coming weeks, we’ll be working on fine-tuning the new convention timeline and updating documents. We’ll keep you posted with updates along the way.
December 2020: On December 7, LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison sent a letter and FAQs to congregations and church workers regarding the possibility of moving the Synod Convention from 2022 to 2023. Congregations will be voting on this question from early January to February 15.
