Do you ever need to find an LCMS congregation while on the road, or to connect via social media with other LCMS Lutherans, or wish you could find a daily devotional resource, no matter where you may be?
The new, free LCMS app provides these features, and more.
“We’re delighted to offer this new means for LCMS people to connect to their church with their mobile devices,” said David L. Strand, executive director of LCMS Communications. “Now, wherever you are, a wealth of beneficial resources concerning the church and our lives of faith is literally at hand.”
The easy-to-use app was jointly developed by LCMS Information Technology and Web staff. Features included in the app are based on feedback from LCMS website visitors and callers to the LCMS Church Information Center about information they most wanted to access. The most frequently sought assistance has to do with locating an LCMS congregation.
“In our increasingly mobile society, the LCMS app was developed as a tool for LCMS members on the go to remain connected to distinctly Lutheran information, including locating LCMS congregations, connecting via social-media outlets, staying up-to-date on content from the various LCMS news sources, and streaming radio from KFUO and CLASSIC99,” said Mike Metcalf, director of Information Technology Applications and Architecture for the LCMS.
Available on both the Apple and Android (Google Play) app stores, the LCMS app also features links to current giving opportunities that support LCMS mission and ministry around the world.

I tried yesterday and I have tried today, but I can’t find this new app on Google Play.
Here is a direct download link to the Google Play store app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.lcms.lcms
Being a confessional Lutheran in the post-modern era can be a lonely experience. It is compounded only by being the happy owner of a Windows phone. We are the loneliest of the lonely, discriminated against even amongst those with whom we are the closest. On the other hand we are a tight-knit group finding compassion and empathy in the midst of adversity! We shall overcome… some day. 😉
Looks good. Works great on the iPhone.
I am using the LCMS app and I really like it.
Finding a church works well, and the devotional by Pastor Ken Klaus is awesome!
I had to go to the Men’s Network to get it, but now it is all in one place.
