June 2019 WELS Connection

The June edition of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) Connection highlighting news from our national church body - This month we are reminded that the God-given mission of the church is to seek the lost.

But that same zeal for missions should lead us also to recognize that we have a ripe mission field right in our own congregations, among family, friends, and neighbors who once worshiped with us but have now strayed. Watch this month’s WELS Connection to learn more about your synod’s initiative to seek the lost.
