Resolved, That before October 31, 2017, the congregations of the Mid-South District consider holding at least one outreach event that specifically teaches the importance of the Reformation and Lutheran theology. See District Convention Proceedings.
Outreach is an every-member privilege
At Redeemer Lutheran, Nashville, the outreach plan is to highlight who we are in our observances of the Church Year. We desire to initiate the uninitiated into the life of the Church. Outreach Sundays/Days are designated for the high festivals and new seasons of the year, for example: First Sunday in Advent, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, First Sunday in Lent, Good Friday/Easter Vigil/Easter, Reformation Sunday.
In addition to petitions that are offered in the Prayer of the Church, invitations are included in the bulletin for the two Sundays prior to the event. This affords every member the opportunity to personally invite a friend or family. Invitations are printed on card stock, two per page, making them 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Sample invitations are offered below.
If you are interested in using the samples in your church, please contact Pastor Philip Young.
