The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod app locates LCMS churches in your area, delivers worldwide Lutheran news, connects you with other Lutherans and gives you God’s Word in a daily devotion!
This update makes it easier for us to dynamically change the content of the app; this way we can add temporary features (from the user's perspective) and update them as needed. Also at least one long-standing typo has been fixed.

Location finder doesn’t work
I installed this app to use the location finder for finding churches when we travel. As a couple other reviewers recently mentioned, it doesn’t work at all. The map page opens but then gets stuck in an eternal loop of “locating and rezooming.” And forget trying to type in a new location in the search bar. My app didn’t freeze up entirely, but the process was so slow, it may as well have. I guess I’ll go back to opening up a browser window on my phone and using the website.
I have used this for many years and recently it has gone bonkers. Very difficult to find church location in other states. We travel via RV around country and also to get info on the different congregations all over. I used it almost weekly but now it has no value except for area within 50 miles around my home. What gives? It could be valuable tool for many.
I love this app ... when it works.
I have used this iOS app mostly for its “find a church” capability. As a pastor, I’m often trying to help people know where other LCMS churches are, looking for my own sake, etc.
However, the “Find a church” is no longer working. It just sits between “loading churches” and “rezooming.” So ... it’s frustrating. I know what it’s capable and I love it. I know it’s not doing it, and I get frustrated.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
