2023 CCA Symposium

June 21-23, 2023

Christ and the Law:
Catechesis on the Ten Commandments

Dear friends in Christ:
This year’s symposium will bring together six seasoned pastors and theologians who have been long-time supporters of the Concordia Catechetical Academy.  They are all my dear friends and have been among the most frequent and appreciated presenters at previous symposia. They will assist us in learning the riches of the Ten Commandments through a series of sermons, devotions, and catechetical lectures. The symposium will conclude with a panel discussion. This year’s symposium will be held entirely at Peace Lutheran Church and Academy in Sussex.

This will, most likely, be the last of our national symposia. I want to encourage those who have supported and attended our symposia in years past, to celebrate with us the work of the CCA by coming to this year’s symposium: Christ and the Law: Catechesis on the Ten Commandments. By the grace of God, the work of the CCA will continue with an expansion of material in the Lutheran Catechesis Series, including a Family Prayer/Sunday School curriculum, VBS material, and Christmas programs for children. In place of a national symposium, we hope to host regional conferences promoting Luther’s Small Catechism, the Lutheran ethos, and a culture of catechesis and prayer in the congregations and schools of the Synod. Thank you for your past and future support. Please remember us in your prayers.

In Christ,
Pastor Peter C. Bender,
Director of the Concordia Catechetical Academy
