INVITATION EVANGELISM TEAM MEETING
THIS SUNDAY – October 5 – AT 12:15 IN THE PARLOR

One of the great ministries we do at FELC is welcome people with the hospitality
of Christ, and follow up with them to make sure they know they are welcomed, and
listen to their needs and experience as a visitor.

The Invitation Evangelism Team is meeting to work on plans for how to best
invite and welcome visitors. Anyone interested in helping out with this ministry
is encouraged to attend the meeting. Since lunch is being provided by the
Thrivent fund raiser event, you can grab a meal and bring it to the meeting. If
you have questions, please speak to Pastor Coffey.
