Time to Breathe, Change and Grow


When the school summer vacation period in northern Germany

arrived in early July, we could almost hear a collective sigh of relief.

The traffic in the city was thinner, the stores were less full and people were simply more relaxed.

It was "take-a-step-back" time... "in-between" time... time to breathe, change and grow.

Now many of us are back from our holidays and students are back at school.

After taking a fresh breath, we're making new start - and still changing and growing.


In the early years of the Church Christians began to order their worship.

The first thing they did was to fix the major festivals - Christmas, Easter and Pentecost.

When they did that, the Sundays between the last of these festivals (Pentecost) and the

"restart" of the cycle (with Advent and Christmas) became the biggest "in-between" time.

We have come to call them simply, "The Sundays after Pentecost."


Now it may be mere coincidence, but these Sundays

normally coincide with our "in-between" time. And that works!

Our summer and fall services invite us to come together to hear God's Word

and enjoy the meal he shares with us while we let ourselves "breathe, change and grow."


Join us! If you're among those whose changes in this season

include relocation to the Hamburg area or if -

touched by other "in-between" spirits of the season -

you're moved to explore an opportunity for worship,

we invite you to worship with us.

You'll discover an open, friendly and supportive international

Christian community busy doing what the season calls for:

breathing, changing and growing!
