2021 District Tour Update

Living as the Baptized


We asked for ideas. Church workers and laypeople around the district helped us fill 20 pages.

In November, Kansas District staff members traveled to six locations around the state to explore the idea of “Living as the Baptized.” What is our shared calling as the baptized in the LCMS Kansas District? What does “life as the baptized” look like in homes, congregations, and communities? What are our blessings, challenges, obstacles, and opportunities? What should our district focus on in the next triennium?

After the tour, we compiled a list of all the proposed priorities for 2022-2025, many of which pointed in similar directions. For a one-page summary and a few tour photos, click the button below, which will take you to an article from the February 2022 Kansas District supplement of The Lutheran Witness.  

We’re grateful to our host pastors and congregations and everyone who took the time to share ideas about “Living as the Baptized” in the Kansas District. Thank you!

Our Calling as the Baptized


But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has 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
