Tips for Parish Leaders

It is important that our congregational leaders are aware of tools available as education and worship resources during the coming months. In September 2002, a package of material was sent to each ELCIC congregation. Please make use of these materials and others as they become available to involve your congregation in this unique opportunity.

  • Share and discuss the possibilities with your Sunday school superintendent/teachers, worship leaders, ELW, Youth Group, confirmation class, Church Council, adult study groups, etc.
  • Use the resources in conjunction with LWF Sunday (Oct. 27, 2002, is suggested, but choose the Sunday most suitable for your congregation.)
  • Identify a special LWF day, or week, or month.
  • Post the map to create curiosity.
  • Propose an intergenerational afternoon.
  • Invite a speaker.
  • Plan a series of temple talks.
  • Advertise the LWF Assembly web site.
  • Tell a mission story.
  • Learn about your companion synod.
  • Write a special LWF column for your newsletter this year
    (download the logo)… the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

Use the Internet for up-to-date information as the year progresses. The PDF format for information about LWF Sunday 2002 is available at lutheranworld.org/Essentials/LWF-Sunday.html
