2013 LCMS Convention–“Baptized for this Moment”

I’ve been down at the LCMS convention a few times over the course of the last several days, and I took some pictures, both when I was volunteering, and when I took the children to see what it was all about.

The convention is being held at America’s Center (which is attached to the Edwards Jones Dome),  in downtown St. Louis. I had never been there before…the building is huge!

Lots of signage in and around the building announcing the convention:

The registration area (the calm before the storm!):

Lots of Lutherans!

It was a little strange worshipping in a convention center for the Opening Service:

But it was wonderful seeing so many pastors vested for the service!

KFUO has been broadcasting live from the convention:

I brought the children with a few specific things in mind that I wanted them to see. We peeked inside halls one and two, where all of the work is being done:

We spent a lot of time in the exhibit hall:

The CPH “table” was the overwhelming favorite, partly because it was the biggest one there, and partly because they all remembered that Daddy used to work there!

The children were also excited to get to write notes of encouragement to missionaries:

They also liked seeing the banners that were made by school children to decorate the main convention center hall:

Of course, I had to take a pictures of all of the children there!

When we got home, we all put on our temporary tattoos:

I’m so glad that the convention was in St. Louis this year, so that the children could see their church body at work!
