Ash Wednesday Worship – This Week
The season of Lent will begin this week, with Ash Wednesday. We gather for an evening service of worship with the imposition of ashes: Wednesday 10 February, 19h30 at the church. All are welcome.
New Website Luther250.com
We have a new, dedicated website for the 250 years celebrations this year: luther250.com. It will be filled with news, articles and lots of pictures. On this site you can also sign up to automatically receive “News250” updates by email.
If you take pictures during today’s celebration, please send your best ones to Ray Woodcock (
) so that he can post them on the site.
English Café – Tuesdays
On Tuesdays the ELCG is hosting a weekly English Café in our church. The Gemeinderaum is open with coffee, tea, and some treats and a couple of hosts to welcome anyone who is looking for a safe place and maybe a conversation partner. While the café will be open to anyone who comes, it is specifically aimed at meeting needs of migrants and refugees in Geneva.
The café will take place every Tuesday from 14h00 to 17h00. Interested in helping out from time to time? Sign up on the information sheet this morning.
Lent Book Study – Being Christian
This Lent, a group will be reading and discussing Rowan Williams’s recent book Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer. It’s a book by a great theologian and writer on basics of the Christian faith—perfect either for someone new to the faith or looking to deepen understanding of central Christian practices. “A lifetime’s immersion in theology and devotion lies hidden behind this fresh and illuminating sketch of the essentials.”
The discussion group will meet on Sunday mornings during Lent from 9h45 to 10h45 at the church. Copies of the book are available for CHF 12. If you would like a copy, please sign up this morning.
Lent “Walking Together” Gatherings Begin 14 February
Newcomers and anyone interested in an experience of growing in faith are invited to join in “Walking Together,” a series of gatherings throughout the season of Lent. For more information, contact Pastor Andy or the office.
Worship Survey Coming Monday
Last year, Frances O’Sullivan, a PhD student from the UK (and friend of Wendy and Andrew), was with us throughout Holy Week. She is studying the role of music in communities and would appreciate it if members of our community would assist with her research by completing a survey. The link will be sent to everyone on our email mailing list on Monday.
