EVERYONE HIS WITNESS WORSKSHOP
Saturday, September 21st 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
(with lunch provided)
The Board of Evangelism invites you to our very first “Everyone His Witness” workshop to be held here at Trinity Lutheran.
What exactly is “Everyone His Witness?” It is a relational, contextual Lutheran evangelism program developed by the LCMS that teaches us how to witness to our non-churched friends, co-workers and family members.
Using the LASSIE approach to witnessing (an acrostic that stands for Listen, Ask, Share, Invite, and Encourage) we learn how to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in a simple, inoffensive, natural way with people who are part of our daily lives.
The program consists of two parts:
First, an onsite introduction to the core modules will be led by the Pastor (which we will accomplish at our September 21st workshop). Second, after the workshop concludes, attendees are invited to an online website where additional in-depth, detailed training can be found for those who find themselves interested in learning more.
We are limited to only thirty participants at this event and so we have placed a sign-up list in the church narthex for those of you who are interested in attending.
Textbooks and supplies needed will be provided free of charge but donations will be gladly accepted. A soup and salad lunch will be provided by the Board of Evangelism. So please sign up and secure your seat.
Our congregation is participation in the LCMS Re:Vitality Lutheran revitalization program. There is a congregation survey for you to fill out. Simply go to this link when you are ready to begin: www.lcms.org/survey/revitality and enter our congregation code: C648863
We need to hear from everyone, individually. That means husbands and wives should both fill out a questionnaire separately. We want to hear from you whether you’ve been a member here your whole life or you are a new member.
Your responses are completely anonymous. No one will know your name, and we will not see individual responses. It is important to be honest in your feedback so that we can have an accurate assessment about where we are as a congregation.
Help us find the answer to, “Where are we…really?” THE SURVEY DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER 8TH. Paper copies of the survey are available at the church as well.
50+ ADULT FELLOWSHIP GROUP
LUNCHEON & DEVOTIONAL
The 50+ Group will meet on Thursday, September 5th at 11:15 a.m. for Bible study and lunch. Bring your favorite dish to share. Our vicar, Rob Schrader, will be our speaker and share his life story.
