From Lutheran Women's Missionary League - Canada
Seminar “One” was developed by four women (one from each district) based on Ephesians 4:4-6.
It was designed to be used in the district, zone, or even at a society meeting to be strengthened by God’s Word, find God’s purpose for us, and be reminded that as “ONE” we are stronger.
The webinar will consist of the Opening Prayer, Devotion, and three Bible Studies. We will also share about the ice breaker, Emmaus Walk, and the mission outreach which could be done in your local area.
One needs to register with Rena Detlefsen: email@example.com in order to receive the webinar sign in information. For the webinar, a good internet connection is needed and a headset is highly recommended.
The Laurentian District will offer Webinar “One” on Saturday, July 11, 2020 beginning at 10:00 a.m. Ontario time, 11:00 a.m. Maritimes, and 11:30 a.m. Nfld. Please mark your calendar and register for this event. We suggest your time will be 3 hours.

Go to www.lll.ca and browse through the material under messages of hope, and resources to access everything from Canadian content to the radio broadcast schedule.
In response to the changing needs you have right now, we will also be creating videos and info posts about digital resources on our Facebook, Instagram and Youtube channels.
For those of you that are not on social media- now might be the time to check things out. Lutheran Church Canada and all its members has shared solid, liturgical and innovative resources for worship, bible study, devotions and more.

Vacation Bible School - Online
Families across our country are headed into a summer like no other. Parents need resources for their children. They will not be able to send them to day camps. They will not have the resources provided by their schools. With the resources God has given us, we can respond to this opportunity together, to share Christ’s message with kids across the country!
With a little coordination, LCC congregations could provide Virtual VBS to very large numbers of children – from any place in Canada – all summer long! Your congregation would only need to provide one week of VBS, like normal, but would have VBS available to the children in your community every week of the summer from the other LCC congregations. We are not constrained by physical boundaries or numbers. AND we have Lutheran school teachers who are already teaching their classes "virtually" in this way, who are willing to help us facilitate this work. CPH has also begun developing resources for this delivery model. Are you at least curious about the details of how it works, and what it would take to pull off?
Here are some of the unexpected benefits of this unique opportunity:
Your children will have the Bible as the basis of their entire summer routine.
Congregations without children's ministry would be able to provide ministry to children in their area.
Congregations thinking they needed to cancel their VBS could modify it to a virtual model.
Unchurched parents would have a resource for their children.
This is easily shared, sent to anyone, by the click of a mouse, who could immediately join.
Parents need it.
Schools can't provide it.
The Church can - let's coordinate.
