Outreach in a Lutheran Grade School Can Succeed by Appropriately Applying Biblical Principles of Church Fellowship
As an evangelical church body one of our chief goals is to follow the command of the Great Commission. Obviously this has implications for many facets of ministry but that which this paper addresses is how this relates to schools. Outreach has been happening for many years in our schools and yet the topic seems to continue to arise over concern for maintaining the biblical doctrine of church fellowship. The intent of this paper is to revisit this doctrine. Then, with it fresh in the mind, take a look at outreach in our schools. By taking a look at the challenges and blessings of using Lutheran elementary schools for outreach may the reader see that outreach in Lutheran elementary schools can succeed along with proper application of biblical principles of fellowship.
