32nd Annual MN Lutheran Free Conference | Oct. 26

Hosted by MN North Confessional Lutherans & other friends & supporters

At a free conference, it’s the speakers who are free—free to speak as individuals and not as representatives of a church body.

Christ’s Hope Amid Cultural Madness & Immorality

When: Saturday, October 26. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. Conference runs 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Where: Redeemer Lutheran Church, 2719 Third Street North, St. Cloud, MN

Speakers: Rev. Dr. Lucas Woodford, President, MN South District, LCMS, and Rev. Dr. Karl Weber, pastor at St. John, Ottertail, and St. Paul’s, Richville, and 1st Vice President, MN North District, LCMS

  • President Woodford will speak of how life all around us is being turned upside down and inside out. The world is being stripped of meaning and purpose, and the self is being stripped of any and all moral character. However, this is an opportunity for the Church to boldly address the challenges of our age. Rather than cursing the darkness, we can light a match to confront the toxic moral and spiritual influences all around us. We can answer the question of how to find hope. We can help our people develop good habits of faith and life, enabling them to combat the evil around them, build biblical character, and edify the family unit. This we need to do this not only for ourselves, but also for the generation of Christians to come.

  • 1st Vice President Weber will present how marriage is God’s thumbprint of the Gospel upon creation. Down through the centuries, unbelief through reason turns our focus off of Christ and onto ourselves, where we are lost in a world of guesses and death. Only biblical revelation gives us the true meaning as to why God made us male and female and offers to us in the Gospel God’s mercy in Jesus when we fall short of His high calling in our lives.

Cost: $25 / adult, $10 / high school and college students. Though this fee is not due until you register at the door, the cooks at Redeemer would like to know if you’re planning to attend and have lunch. So on or before Monday, October 21, please contact Redeemer at 320-252-8171 or email office@redeemerstcloud.org to let them know you’re planning to attend.

Questions? Contact planning committee member Rev. John Grein at 320-583-7788 or jgrein@mediacombb.net. (Although Redeemer is the host congregation, it does not plan the conference. A committee of pastors from both the MN South and North districts of the LCMS is responsible. Therefore, questions about this conference are not to be asked of Redeemer or her pastor, but should be directed to Rev. Grein instead.)
