Lutheran Hour Ministries
What began as with radio broadcast ministry (which still continues today) has expanded to many ministries and resources for Christians and the growing Kingdom of God. We recommend you check out their website (www.lhm.org) but especially Project Connect (www.hm.org/projectconnect). This booklet ministry resource includes topical booklets that can “promote outreach”, and “equip us to share our faith”. “Each of the more than 50 booklets available is written from the Christian perspective and address variety of topics, from forgiveness and the after-life to depression and anger management. Many have been translated into Spanish.” You can download them for free or pay a small fee for a hard copy. Check it out!
Last April (2015) we had the opportunity to use a resource called RightNow Media. This resource continues to be available to the congregation. RightNow Media has 10,000 resources ranging from bible studies, Christian and/or leadership conference sessions, children’s videos, and more (in a format similar to Netflix streaming). You are welcome to take advantage of this resource to help grow in faith and seek help in areas of life you desire more knowledge, wisdom, and help. If you have not signed up contact Brandee in the office (Admin@standrewsstockton.org) so we can get you signed up.
