There’s a new Reformation going on! All around the world, Christians young and old are being introduced to Luther’s Small Catechism and other Lutheran materials, translated and published by the Lutheran Heritage Foundation.
LHF speakers will come to your church, free of charge, to tell how new Lutherans are embracing sound doctrine and begging for more materials to be translated into their languages. They will also share how your congregation can play a part in this important mission.
To schedule an LHF speaker for your church’s mission rally, Bible study, or other special event, call (800)554-0723.
