Information on Evangelism & Lay Witness Sundays

AUGUST 23, 2023

The Lord said…I’ve heard your cries, I feel your pain. Out of your hurt and disappointment, I will bring great Joy. Hold on. Everything will be alright. Place your faith and trust in Me. Be still and know that I am God.

Praying all is well with you and your families. Thanks to all the 3rd Vice Presidents who participated with us in Evangelism Sunday May 28, 2023. Theme: “A Time For Repentance, Renewal and Reconciliation” 2 Corinthians 5: 16-21

Lay Witness Sunday is October 8, 2023. The Theme: “We Are and We Do” 1 Peter 3: 15 (but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear).   Who are we? We are Lay Witnesses, Disciples of Christ, More than Conquerors and Ambassadors.

Presidents we ask that you be creative in presenting your program. Work with your Pastors and members to make a difference in many lives. Get your local Churches involved, Conferences and Episcopal District. It can be a worship service, an awards program or community outreach. It’s what you make happen in the name of the Lord in a good way.


Officially, the Connectional Lay Witness Day was designated for observances throughout the AME Church on the 2nd Sunday during the month of October at the

Eleventh Biennial Session in 1969. Lay witness Sunday provides lay persons with the opportunity to witness their faith in Jesus Christ and their commitment to fulfilling His mission in the world. This event was established for lay persons to carry out morning worship services at their respective local churches. Traditionally,

Lay Witness Sunday recognizes the work and mission of all laity, which takes place within and outside the walls of the AME Church.

Yours In His Service,
