The Evangelical Lutheran Mission Society for the Chinese (ELMSC) will hold its Fourth Annual Chinese Seminar on Holy Scripture and Luther’s Small Catechism August 4-7, 2017 on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana. The seminar is designed especially for Mandarin-speaking North American Chinese Christians who would like to engage in a deeper study of Scripture and the Catechism using Mandarin Chinese.  The seminary location was chosen to also encourage participants toward possibly later studying to be a pastor or deaconess in the Lutheran Church.  Participants will study (in Mandarin Chinese) the basics of salvation, the Scriptural narrative of salvation, and Luther’s Small Catechism, this year focusing on the Ten Commandments, the Creed, and the Table of Duties.  The prayer offices of Matins and Compline will also be conducted each day (in Mandarin Chinese).  On Sunday morning, the attendees will attend Divine Service at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Ft. Wayne.  The presenters are all pastors of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS).  The registration fee is $150, which covers all costs for the seminar, including housing and food.  In addition, the society will cover up to $400 transportation costs for the first ten registrants (and possibly more, depending on available funds).  Registration is limited to 20 participants. Those interested in participating are asked to fill out a registration form and send it with the $150 registration fee to the address below no later than July 15. As the registration form indicates, registrants are required to have their pastor or coordinator of the Christian organization in which they participate write a brief recommendation paragraph for the participant on the registration form. Checks should be made payable to “ELMSC”. Please mail the registration form and $150 registration fee to: ELMSC, 100 E. Michigan St., Evansville, IN 47711
