Sunday 26th October 2014: Bulletin announcements.




Draft of new church directory available today for review

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


Tuesday Bible study: 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—all are welcome to join.


Soup Kitchen assistance needed this Saturday 1 November

Our church has committed to provide a team of at least 8 people once a month to prepare, cook and serve food for around 150 people at the Jardin Montbrillant behind Cornavin train station. To help this Saturday from 10h00 to about 12h45, or to learn more about this ministry, contact Valerie Marinoni.


Table Talk for young adults 12 November, 19h00, at the church

On Wednesday 12 November there will be a Table Talk for young adults who are members or friends of the ELCG. This is an opportunity for people in their 20s and 30s to talk about specific needs for young adults in our congregation and in the wider Geneva community. Join the conversation!


World Week of Religion lecture 13 November, 20h00, at the church

Dr. Ignace Haaz from the Globethics Foundation, a joint venture with the WCC, will present the Globethics Library which offers free online access to some 1.5 million documents in the fields of knowledge and wisdom as they relate to ethics. The lecture will be in French; the discussion will be translated into English, French and German. For more information check the GSC website www.luther-genf.ch or call 022 348 95 83.



Coming soon: NEXT WEEK, 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  -  after the worship service - 2nd November, 2014


Sunday 2nd November 2014 - following the worship service
Our Harvest Festival is a time for giving thanks.

The congregation will gather for a festive party and auction.
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".

Thank you for your generosity and your part in our ministry !
