Fishing for People, Evangelism for all the Baptized
John's Lutheran Church, 141 S. Ludlow St, Dayton, OH
'Evangelism' can be such a scary word until we get to the root where we find 'evangel,' which simply means 'good news.' We all like to share good news: a job promotion, a high turn out for an event, a clean bill of health, a wedding, a long awaited grandchild. No one would have trouble or hesitation sharing these tidbits of good news, so why should the Good News of Jesus be any different? Come to the July 15, 2017 workshop led by Pr. Katie Kerrigan and find out how easy sharing the Good News really can be. It can even be fun! Really.
'Fishing for People' is designed for all baptized members of our congregations and of other denominations, not just the ordained or specially trained. You’ll receive real-world, hands-on training and tips you can take back to your congregation to share, plus meet others from our mission territory who also want to share the Good News in their communities. You’ll walk out of this workshop excited and prepared to ‘fish for people’ and will have made a few new friends in the process.
'Fishing for People, Evangelism for all the Baptized' is scheduled for Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 11am – 2 pm at St. John's Lutheran Church, 141 S. Ludlow St, Dayton, OH. Lunch is provided. A $5 donation to cover lunch is requested.
This workshop is open to people of all denominations. You are encouraged to invite friends, family, co-workers and neighbors for this special evangelism event!
Please RSVP to St. John's Lutheran Church by Monday, July 10 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
