Witness and serve at the Winter Olympics

2010_vancouver_olympics_logoVANCOUVER, B.C. More than 300,000 visitors from around the world will attend the Winter Olympic Games (February 12-28, 2010) and the Paralympics Games (March 12-21, 2010) in Vancouver. Many of the visitors, and a majority of people who live in Vancouver do not believe in Christ as their Saviour from sin, death and the devil.

Would you like to volunteer to serve as a Christian witness for two, three, or four days or possibly a week or two while at the same time experiencing the Winter Olympics? What an opportunity for congregational outreach teams to participate in a short-term outreach trip and for Christian musicians and congregation worship teams to share the Gospel through concerts!

Trinity Lutheran Church, Richmond, and Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Vancouver are planning outreach events (e.g. Internet café; children’s sports camp; evening music concerts, etc.) throughout the Olympic Games (February 12-28, 2010) and need your help.

To see the planned outreach activities and how you can be part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience, visit the ABC District website.

Some of the LCC congregations, in the Vancouver Metropolitan area, are providing lodging to volunteers either in their church building or with some fellow Lutherans who are billeting outreach volunteers. This information is also available at the ABC site. Volunteers need to fund their own expenses and arrange/reserve their own lodging.
