The Immanuel Symposium is designed to create opportunities for deeper study, discussion, and reflection that might arise during ordinary Bible studies. Each course will consists of 4-6 weeks of focused study on a particular topic, allowing participants to dive deep on subjects that interest them. Unless otherwise noted, sessions are hosted at Immanuel Lutheran Church (1700 Westport Rd. Kansas City, MO 64110), from 7pm to 8pm, and are open to the public. A suggested donation of $35 per participant will provide for course materials and developing future offerings of the Immanuel Symposium. We hope you'll join us!

Liturgical Theology


Every Sunday morning, and at various times during the week, the church around the world gathers for worship. Through word and sacrament, through prayer and song, we gather to continue an ancient tradition that continues to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. This June, we’ll take some time to reflect on our liturgical practice, and look to deepen our understanding of the Sunday assembly, as well as discussing occasional services and daily prayer. There’s a lot of thought behind each piece of the liturgy, whether we’re aware of it or not.  

Let by Rev. Micah Sievenpiper, we’ll delve into the theology of the liturgy, so that we might deepen our understanding, and perhaps expand our worship opportunities in our various communities.

 Register by phone (816) 931-8483 or by e-mail ( by May 28th, and join us on June 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th!
