HOST A MISSION EVENT THAT UNIFIES YOUR CHURCH AROUND MISSION
Church leaders know it can be overwhelming to invite their congregation into mission. Churches often face barriers – challenges casting a unified vision, complicated resources, and the list goes on. Sharing God’s mission ignites your congregation with a passion, and it should never be difficult.
Bible Translation Sunday makes this possible. Lutheran Bible Translators has created an event toolkit that equips you with simple, effective resources to organize and host an event that inspires and energizes your church. Celebrate your partnership in God’s mission!

BIBLE TRANSLATION SUNDAY CELEBRATIONS
Lutheran Bible Translators networks with thousands of pastors and congregations to put God’s Word in the hands of people around the world.
Church leaders wanted to engage their congregations in God’s mission. Lutheran Bible Translators responded by establishing Bible Translation Sunday on the last weekend of September in 2019. The date was selected to coincide with International Translation Day on September 30, which celebrates St. Jerome’s translation of Scripture into the Latin vernacular. But now, congregations can celebrate Bible Translation Sunday any time of the year.
Churches can host Bible Translation Sunday. The FREE Resource Toolkit has been beautifully designed to meet your congregation’s needs. To complement your celebration, you can schedule a Lutheran Bible Translators’ speaker for a follow-up visit. Missionaries and staff are eager to share the impact brought by hearing God’s Word in a person’s own language.
Lutheran Bible Translators will stay connected with you beyond your celebration date. Your congregation will see the ongoing impact of their participation in Bible translation ministry. They will share their love for the Bible with other language communities. Your church will be inspired to continue to serve in God’s mission as they witness the global impact of Scripture in the hands of millions of people.
