Reaching Out


We are at war. It is a war for the souls of our loved ones, our friends, and people we have never met. And it is a war for the future of our nation. Our King – the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, is calling us up, to serve Him on the frontlines of the battle. It is called The Great Commission, and He is commanding us to put on our spiritual armor (Ephesians 6), pray fervently, and have SPIRITUAL CONVERSATIONS with those He brings across our path, because their eternal destiny is at stake. So the question facing you (and me) is: Will you answer the call, or would you rather just sit on the bench and watch from the sidelines? (And we all know who owns the bench.)

We are very fortunate to have access to terrific materials called Spiritual Conversations. Developed by Lutheran Hour Ministries, they give us valuable insights and tools to make it much easier and more natural to have conversations about Jesus with family, friends, and strangers. So we are hosting a series of Spiritual Conversation workshops, starting THIS COMING WEDNESDAY, MAY 7, and followed by workshops on May 14 and 21. The workshops will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.; feel free to bring your own food at 6 p.m. (The May 7 workshop will be in the church office building because of the rummage sale in the Luther Building).

We would be delighted if you can join us for these workshops. If you can, please register on-line on our website and go to “Upcoming Events”, find “Spiritual Conversations Workshops, scroll down, and click on “Confirm Attendance”. Or just let our church office you will be coming. This is a terrific opportunity to learn vital insights to help us carry out the Great Commission, so you won’t want to miss it.

Yours in Christ,
