Welcome to 'Project Connect' Booklet Ministry Program
Bring welcome hope to your community through Project Connect -- an indispensable, on-site, booklet ministry resource that uses display racks of pocket-sized, topical booklets to promote outreach. There are also some booklets for equipping your congregation's members to share their faith. Each of the more than 50 booklets available is written from a Christian perspective and addresses a variety of topics, from forgiveness and the after-life to depression and anger management. Many have been translated into Spanish too.
Each display rack holds an assortment of booklets that are ideal for people to take at their convenience and discretion. When put in a church narthex or fellowship hall, these racks are available for visitors on their time, giving them resources when they need them. Project Connect rack placement doesn't have to be limited to only churches however. For instance, community recreational centers, doctors' and dentists' offices, area funeral homes (a very good location!), and even in proximity to public restrooms are all great sites. Each booklet has space to include your church's information -- complete with worship times and address directions.

About Project Connect
How can you offer help to those in your church who are struggling, but who may not be ready to discuss the issue with others?
How can you reach out to people in your community with a Christian message of love and hope?
The answer is Project Connect.
Project Connect is a booklet ministry of Lutheran Hour Ministries. It gives congregations a tangible, take-home resource of Christ-centered value they can offer to visitors, members, or others in their community.
Project Connect addresses a wide variety of topics, offering booklets that connect God's Word to real-life issues.
Project Connect is effective, affordable, easy to get started in your congregation. It's also a breeze to maintain. In fact, with the contribution envelopes provided, display racks help fund themselves.

REACH OUT TO YOUR COMMUNITY
There are many people in your community who haven't crossed the doorstep of a church in years; in fact, some may have never been to church. Still, that doesn't mean they won't be receptive to the Gospel. Sharing God's Good News in Jesus doesn't need to be an awkward or anxiety-filled encounter. Making one-on-one contact with others is a privilege but, as we all know, that doesn't make it easy.
Outreach is a great opportunity to touch people in your area. Click here for suggestions on how and where to share Project Connect booklets in your community. Following the booklet and topic list, I've put down some possible outreach ideas your church can do. From the extrovert to the introvert, everyone can participate! LHM is dedicated to equipping your congregation with valuable resources that make outreach less stressful for the doer and of the no-guilt variety for the receiver.
