GARY | The Gary Area Lutheran Association will host its first annual Evangelism Seminar from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Saturday.
Led by Paul Wendt, director of Christian Education at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Crown Point and chair of the Indiana District Evangelism Task Force for the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, the event will be held at Our Saviour Lutheran Church, 49th Avenue and Pierce Street, Gary.
Titled "Building Bridges," the seminar discussion will include learning how to reach out to people already known to us, how to feel comfortable speaking one's faith, Bible verses that encourage people and that can be shared with friends, and how to respond to common questions about one's faith.
The seminar is free, but lunch is $8. For additional information and to make required reservations, contact Dennis Hodges at (219) 793-3370 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
