To help our efforts to grow our congregation, we have contacted our Synod offices for tips about reaching out to youth and young adults. Charlie Roberts, the Synod’s Director of Youth, has volunteered some information and will work with us to find ways we can reach people of today. Trom those discussions, we will develop a plan to reach a larger group of folks in our neighborhood. We are also reaching out to Synod resources that are experts in using modern communications - websites, social media, etc., to reach people of all ages in our community.
The council voted to invite Charlie Roberts to come and do a Forum discussion after a church service for all those interested, as soon as it can be arranged. Look in your Sunday bulletin for information on this event.
We have also contacted Marsha Roscoe, the Synod's Director for Resource Ministries for suggestions on how we can help young parents teach their young children about Jesus and His message.
We are working with Mr. Roberts to set a date for his initial visit with us. It looks like it will be sometime in the latter part of this summer.
If you have any ideas for attracting prospective new members to our congregation, please send them to the church office. You may print and use the handy Contact Us form.
