The Story of Christianity in Ethiopia

TheStoryofChristianityEthiopia

This Sunday morning, March 15…

Mel Lawrenz, Elmbrook Minister at Large and former Senior Pastor has recently spent time in Ethiopia where there is a remarkable story of faith that goes back 3,000 years.
In the valleys, plateaus, and mountains of sunny Ethiopia in the horn of Africa a dramatic movement of God has been afoot which reached dramatic proportions just in the past few decades. The country is known for many things: the origin of the coffee bean, the only African nation never to be colonized by a foreign power, an ancient connection with the Old Testament (the Queen of Sheba), and the New Testament (the conversion of the Ethiopian eunuch via Philip the Evangelist in Acts 8), the site of ancient human remains, National Geographic photos of Stone Age tribes.

Mel will share lessons for us to learn from his two recent trips there, and the many years of influence Elmbrook Church has had through our supported missionaries.

Invite your friends to hear this fascinating story. This Sunday, March 15, 9:30am in the Elmbrook Church Chapel.

(AND, you may be the lucky person to go home with a bag of Ethiopian coffee beans Mel hand-carried back!)

  1. Hey Mel, will there be a way for us to ‘listen’ to this if we can’t make it to the event? I’ll be out of town, but really interested in hearing more…I have a friend who adopted three children from Ethiopia two years ago!
