Draft of New Church Directory Available Today for Review

A new church directory will be produced in the coming weeks. Please check your entry in the draft available today and clearly mark any changes or corrections.

 

Tuesday Bible study: Jonah and Ruth

A Bible study group gathers every Tuesday from 19h30 until 21h00. This fall, we are reading Jonah and Ruth, two short Old Testament books with great stories and wonderful depictions of the mercy of God. Don’t worry if you can’t make it every week—join when you are able. Study guides are available for CHF 20 each—sign up this morning if you would like one.

 

New Sunday morning class: Practicing our Faith

On Sunday mornings this fall, a group is gathering to look at central practices of the Christian faith, including discernment, Sabbath-keeping, singing, and forgiveness. We gather at the church from 9h45 until 10h45, prior to worship, for the next 7 Sundays. Books are available for CHF 20 each—though not required, they’ll be a helpful way to follow along.

 

Coming soon: In TWO WEEKS, the ELCG Harvest Festival

Every fall the congregation gathers for a festive afternoon party and auction. All proceeds go toward our sharing ministry—our support of relief and development projects throughout the world. Stay tuned for more information very soon, and begin thinking about what you could donate this year: a meal, a lesson, an item….

Harvest Festival

2 November 2014

Following the service

 

 

Our Harvest Festival in two weeks will be a time for giving thanks.

The congregation will gather for a festive party and auction after the service.

 

Each family or individual donates one item to be sold,

and we “pay” generous amounts for those items.

 

All proceeds will go to our congregation’s Sharing Projects,

our support of selected relief and development projects throughout the world.

 

Offers of ethnic dinners at your home usually cause lively bidding!

Or perhaps you could donate a lesson, babysitting,

a guided excursion or hike, an item…??

 

All donated items should be marked with a “starting price” and your name.

 

If you will not be here for the Harvest Festival,

you can bring your donation to the church office.

You may also contribute through a bulletin de versement, or by donating cash.

 

Please label donations “Harvest Festival.”
