All are welcome for a presentation by guest preacher Pastor James May at 9 a.m. on Sunday, July 30 at St. John’s Lutheran Church (1200 13th Avenue NW)

At 10:15 a.m., after worship, May will speak about what Lutherans in Africa is, and what he is doing with the millions of Lutherans all over Africa. LIA also translates and distributes Lutheran materials like the Small Catechism and The Book of Concord. This is one of the best ways to educate pastors and catechists in Africa.

LIA does not just teach but rather trains pastors and catechists to be teachers of the faith. The participants will go home to teach dozens, hundreds, and thousands of people in their parish or region.

Founded in 2010, Lutherans in Africa (LIA) equips Africans to be teachers of the saving faith in Christ Jesus. This is done through training pastors, evangelists, deaconesses, and Sunday school teachers in the pure doctrine and its instruction, liturgy, and hymnody and through translating key doctrinal resources into African languages.
