Sharing the Greatest Story

Sharing the Greatest Story

Spring 2021
God is always at work in and through His people to spread the Good News of His sacrificial love. God’s story is the greatest ever told. That is worth celebrating!

Christians rejoice each Sunday in hearing Scripture in their own language. Yet thousands of languages around the world are still without it.

Bible Translation Sunday (BTS) is a celebration held by congregations throughout the country to share about the need for Bible translation work.

At Lutheran Bible Translators, we are excited to provide materials for pastors and church workers to share about Bible translation ministry with their congregations. This year, the website will feature:

• A sermon written by Dr. Reed Lessing

• Worship elements

• Children’s activities

• Bible study resources

• A PowerPoint presentation

• Videos

One pastor shared the impact upon his congregation after celebrating BTS.

“Many people were very surprised at the information shared – not realizing the tremendous task of translation and how many areas still are without God’s Word in their own language.”

God works in and through you to share His Word. This September, share the global need for the greatest story ever told!

Rev. Rich Rudowske preaches on the importance of Bible translation.
