Connecting People to Jesus

I Love to Tell the Story!

The Evangelism Board is charged with bringing the Gospel to the unchurched and to accomplish this task involves the work of all of God’s people to spread the Gospel. We are charged with the great commission, Matthew 28:19-20. 

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” 

Simply stated, we are connecting people to Jesus.Connecting People to Jesus

Your first reaction may be, “I can’t speak eloquently!”  At First Lutheran Church we use many ways to tell about this wonderful grace and love of God.  We use most modern forms of communication and public relations to spread God’s word: a web site, a Facebook page, e-mails, signs, special events, press releases, brochures, banners, bulletin boards, signs, greeters, name tags and most any tool you could imagine.

We work with other boards to promote their activities, such as Fellowship events, Rally Day for the Board of Education, and other events.  Most importantly, we work with the Pastors to reach out to our community, welcome visitors and new members and to integrate these members into the family of First Lutheran Church.

It does sound overwhelming--but remember that we are to sow the seeds, water and watch for the Holy Spirit to grow.

There is a place for everyone who can willingly and joyfully participates in this vital effort.

People who will commit and follow through with a task, whether we are holding a community survey, placing signs along the roadside, or holding an Oktoberfest. As Lutherans, we are making it known that we are here to minister in many ways, feeding the homeless, building houses for Habitat, holding special events- all are tools to connect people to Jesus.
