Prayer for the Week

 

 

Gracious God, holding before us the plate with the bread of life, offered without money or price, yet priceless, satisfying, rich:
open our mouths to receive your goodness, so that whatever hungers devil us,
we taste your love and turn to your Beloved,
Jesus Christ. Amen

Celebration of the Reformation – 10 September

On Sunday, 10 September, Lutheran churches from throughout Switzerland will gather for a common worship service in Geneva celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The service will be held at the Temple de la Madeleine at 11h00, just down the hill from the Lutheran Church, and Rev. Dr. Martin Junge, General Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, will be the preacher. There will be no separate worship service at the ELCG that morning.

 

Mark your calendars now, and plan to attend!

 

Congregational Trip to La Grande Chartruese Monastery – 23 September

In place of a congregational retreat this fall, there will be a day-long outing to the beautiful Chartreuse hills, between Grenoble and Chambéry in France. We will travel together by coach bus to visit the museum of La Grande Chartreuse (the main monastery of the Carthusian movement), share a picnic lunch, and see the lovely nearby church of St. Hugues (full of the wonderful artwork of a gifted artist, Arcabas). The trip is open to all and will include activities for children—registration forms and cost information will be available shortly. For now, mark your calendar!
