Videos for outreach during this time
Our good Lord promises that he will make all things work for the good of his people (Romans 8:28), even things like a pandemic. One of the blessings we pray he might provide is increased opportunities to share the gospel with those who do not yet know the good news of forgiveness and eternal life in Christ. It may very well be that he is even now using this situation to prepare hearts to hear this good news.
To assist you in reaching out to those souls WELS Commission on Evangelism is making available a series of devotions. These devotions were originally produced by Pastor Collin Vanderhoof for Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Menomonee Falls, Wis. He has given us permission to make them available to you. These professionally produced video devotions speak directly to many of the fears and concerns people are having as they face uncertain times. Each video is less than two minutes in length, making them perfect for a variety of applications.
Please use these videos however you like. Perhaps you could e-mail one at a time to those on your prospect list with whatever frequency you feel best. You might also consider sharing a video periodically on your social media platforms. Another option would be to share the devotions, one at a time, with your members along with a brief encouragement for them to share them with their unchurched friends.
We realize that some of you might prefer to record your own videos so that your prospects are hearing these messages from someone they already know rather than from a pastor they have never met. So, we are providing the written scripts for these devotions as well. You can access the scripts here.
