ROC registration now open

March 13, 2013 No Comment

ROCWINNIPEG – Registration is now open for Reach Out Canada. This year marks the 25th anniversary since Lutheran Church–Canada’s (LCC) founding convention in 1988. As LCC honours its past, it also looks forward to the future, planning its first ever national outreach conference—Reach Out Canada—to equip and encourage LCC members to share their faith with others.

The conference will take place July 5-7 in Winnipeg. It is organized in partnership with the Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada and Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM). Reach Out Canada is patterned after LHM’s popular Regional Outreach Conferences (ROC). During the three-day event, ROC participants will share some plenary sessions and workshops with youth and volunteers attending LCC’s National Youth Gathering on the campus of the University of Manitoba.

Reach Out Canada will also feature dynamic speakers (including Rev. Greg Seltz, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour), practical workshops, outreach events, and a special Celebration Service to celebrate Lutheran Church–Canada’s 25th anniversary.

The event will take place at the University of Manitoba and Canad Inns Destination Centre—Fort Gary. A special hotel rate at Canad Inns has been negotiated for $112/night (plus taxes). To make a reservation at this rate, call (204) 261-7540 or 1-888-332-2623 and state you are with Lutheran Hour Ministries.

For more information, visit roc.lutheranchurch.ca. The site also provides resources to share with your congregation, including bulletin announcements. To register, please visit Lutheran Hour Ministries’ website here.
