WELS National Worship Conference
Registration is open for the 2024 National Conference on Worship, Music, and the Arts, held July 30-August 2, 2024, at Carthage College, Kenosha, Wis. The worship conference offers something for everyone. It’s not only for pastors and musicians but also for lay people who love worship and want to encourage worship enrichment in their congregations.

The theme of the conference is Sing a New Song to the Lord. While the song of the gospel is always new, this conference will make extensive use of new songs from the 2021 WELS hymnal and beyond.

Online registration runs through July 21. Early-bird rates are until April 30. Regular conference rate is May 1-July 21. Learn more at welsworshipconference.net.
