500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation

Let us know how you are celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation!  Martin Luther, an Augustine monk, posted the “Ninety-five Theses” to the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517. ELCA’s theme is “Freed and Renewed in Christ: 500 Years of God’s Grace in Action.”

    I am looking for a curriculum or outline focused on orientation of lay parishioners who will start doing visitation ministry. Does anyone have a format or content, or method to deliver content?

    I found a guidebook that you can download. Are the lay parishioners also going to offer Communion?

    This may give you some ideas that you could use for your situation.

      Thanks, Marie. This site is temporarily unavailable, but I will check back.

    Carol, I have developed guidelines and an orientation for my congregational care visitors. I go over the guidelines and orientation on
    a one:one basis and try to review it with them on an annual basis. Would that be helpful?


    1. Carol DeSchepper says:

      That would be helpful, if you don’t mind sharing. You can email it to me at cjdeschepper@gmail.com

    The Communication Committee of the ELPNA is working diligently on the web site. Do you have ideas for us to use on a members only page? We would like a special page to reach out to our membership and want to include items that would be helpful. Looking forward to the groups comments.

    I use a program from Resource Ministry called “Ministry to the Homebound”. I also utilize for the part on grief and dying ministry the program from Resource called “Being a Grief Helper”
