Witnessing. What’s it all about?
The Every One His Witness Lutheran program puts sound doctrine into practical action for sharing the faith with people in our everyday lives.
Participants learn: What is witnessing? Why do we witness? And the “how-to” of witnessing using the LASSIE approach — Listen-Ask-Seek-Share-Invite-Encourage.
The program takes place in two parts:First, an on-site Core Module training led by Kathy at the church. Second, attendees are invited to join the context module training website to dive deeper into specific contexts. These are done at home, after the core modules so that you can learn at your own pace, and in specific contexts that are important to you. The context modules include topics like witnessing to Muslims, Mormons, the De-churched, and the LGBTQ+ community.
When?Join us on for Seven Core Module Sessions on Sunday evenings from 7-8:30 PM starting on February 23rd. Please sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board in the Narthex. The cost for the workbook/material is $20 per person. Couples can share the same workbook.
