An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until May 11, 2023
Retired pastor and Trinity member Frank Rothfuss has a passion for the people of the church telling their faith stories. In keeping with that passion, Pastor Rothfuss has agreed to lead a small group book study in the spring of 2023 on Evangelism for “Normal” People: Good News for Those Looking for a Fresh Approach. For many people in ‘mainline’ denominations, the word “evangelism” has a connotation of aggressive proselytizing, a means of arguing people into the Christian community. However, the word ‘evangelism’ simply means to be Gospel proclaiming, a vocation for all the people of faith. And there are many means of proclaiming the Gospel.
In Evangelism for “Normal” People, noted author and teacher John Bowen takes a unique look at what it means to witness to one’s faith. Evangelism is something that all Christians can do as a normal part of being a follower of Jesus. Witty, wise, and biblically grounded, the book challenges in a gentle way. The book also includes study questions for congregational use. Author John Bowen is a professor at Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto.
This book study will begin on Thursday, April 13 at 10 a.m. and will run for five weeks. Please contact Pastor Frank Rothfuss to sign up.
