Lutheran CORE annually co-sponsors an inter-Lutheran Encuentro (Spanish for “Encounter”) for those engaged in or considering Hispanic-Latino / bilingual ministries. The Encuentro features bilingual worship, fellowship, practical ministry presentations, theological reflection and resource sharing in the context of a Lutheran urban parish ministry. Jesus’ Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) is the foundational principle of the event. Host sites include St. Timothy Lutheran Church in the Hermosa neighborhood of Chicago and the First & Santa Cruz Lutheran Parish in downtown Joliet IL. For additional information about Encuentro please contact Pastor Keith Forni, STS, 815-600-3030. KeithLForni@gmail.com.
