Prayer for the Week

 

 

Giver of all good things,

upholding the fallen,

raising up the bowed down,

near to all who call:

release the clenched hands,

the closed minds,

the fearful hearts

to see your bounty

and share it,

a blessing of grace

multiplied for serving others,

to the glory of your Beloved, Jesus Christ,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.

Amen.

Sunday 26th July 2015: Bulletin announcements.

 

Summer Bible Study – Tuesday Evenings
During the summer months, a group will gather for Bible study each Tuesday evening. We’ll be looking ahead to texts for the coming Sunday—each Tuesday evening, from 19h30 until 21h00. All are welcome; join when you can!


Congregational Trip to Taizé this September
On  Thursday 10 September (jeudi du Jeûne genevois, a public holiday in Geneva canton), the congregation is planning a day-trip to  Taizé. Whether you’ve been before or not, this will be a great opportunity to experience the community and worship at  Taizé. An information sheet is available with the sign-up sheets this morning—all are welcome to join!


Next Summer Evening Worship: 15 August
We take church outside for another Saturdays this summer.  Shorter and more informal than Sunday morning, we will celebrate on our feet, communion on the move. But it will be more creative than just “Sunday morning light.”  We will worship in the church garden with the gates wide open, in the hopes of bringing the Gospel alive so that persons unfamiliar with church can participate and discover our multi-cultural Lutheran tradition.  Bring a neighbor or two or their kids.  No previous experience required.


250th Anniversary Celebration Team Forming
In 2016, we will celebrate the 250th anniversary of our church building. To plan for this celebration, a joint team from the English- and German-Speaking Congregations is forming. Interested in being part of the team? Contact the church office or Pastor Willis for more information.

 

Confirmation Class for 2015-16

The confirmation class for the coming year is starting to take shape! Confirmation is a time to explore, ask questions, and study basic topics of the Christian faith and the Bible. Students usually begin our congregation’s two-year program at about age 13. If your family has a child of about this age, please consider the class this year! Classes will begin in September. Please contact Pastor Willis soon for more information.
