Many thanks to Kirsten and her mentor Daphne for the service project you will enjoy this year. Kirsten wrote the play that will be used for the Children's Christmas Pageant. Thanks also go to Anna and her mentor Amanda for organizing and printing the Advent devotional for this year.
The Christmas party will be held on Friday, 21 December at 18:00. Please pay attention to further announcements relating to the location and be ready to share your gift for your Christkindl.
Confirmation is offered as a three year program beginning when the student reaches the seventh grade of school.
Once begun is halfway done!
Students in grades 7, 8, & 9 are members of the Confirmation instruction which is held Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 10:45. The meeting place is the "Upper Room" in the tower. The 9th graders also meet with Pastor one Saturday a month until they affirm their baptism on Pentecost Sunday. At least once per year, a retreat is held for the group. Students have many opportunities to get involved in mission projects: those initiated through the class and those planned and carried out by the students and their mentors. Mentors from within the congregation actively meet with the kids to support them, pray for & with them, and walk part of the faith journey together.
Please contact the church office to register, set up an appointment with the pastor or instructor, or find out more information. Download the Calendar below for the year's schedule.
Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.
Just as love of God begins with listening to his word, so the beginning of love for our brothers and sisters is learning to listen to them. (Life Together)
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Dieses Leben ist keine Frömmigkeit, sondern ein Fromm-Werden.
Wir sind es noch nicht; werden es aber.
Martin Luther, Auslegung zu Philippe 3,13
This life is not devoutness, but becoming devout;
We are not yet what we should be, but we are becoming what we should be.
Martin Luther, Meditation on Philippians 3:13
