Course for Chidren's Ministries

Last weekend we had the opportunity to host a course for Children's Ministry in our Church rooms.
It was a great day of fellowship, training and re-focusing of what's important for Evangelism. We had several people from Churches from different cities. It was intense, but also a blessing.

The Bible in Felt

Friends from Germany gave us a wonderful gift for our Sunday School and Kids programs. A complete Bible Felt Set! We are so blessed and happy about this tool. God answered prayer in a special way.

Kids Club start up

Last Saturday we had our first Kids club (in Italian "ora felice"), though we invited many kids from Umbertide, only two kids showed up. It was a good afternoon with Puppets, a Bible story and crafts. We will have the next meeting tomorrow, but already decided to change the day. It will be on Tuesdays, probably better for the kids schedule...

Visit from our parents

Over the last two weeks we had our parents with us. It was a good time of family time. For them it was also very interesting because it was their first time in Umbertide.

Sunday School

Last Sunday Rebecca had a very god time with four girls in Sunday School. It's encouraging when kids are interested in God's Word.

Summer games in the park - follow up

Last Saturday we had a wonderful day in the park for our follow up. The weather was great, it wasn't to hot and it didn't rain. Many kids with their parents and grandparents could attend and listen to the Gospel. We are praying that we can start an English-Club and a Kids-Club in October.

Summer camp in Tuscany

We had a wonderful time in Poggio Ubertini with around 150 Kids and 50 staff members.
The Lord was faithful as always. The weather was great, also the fellowship between staff members.
10 kids accepted the Lord, hallelujah!

Inauguration of the new meeting hall

It was a wonderful day, the sun was shining, it didn't rain even if the weather forecast was bad for that day. We had more than 150 people attending the official opening of the meeting hall. Mainly from other churches from central Italy, but also around 30 non believing friends from Umbertide. The mayor was there, we had a wonderful choir from a Korean church in Florence and a challenging message from on of the elders from the church in Città di Castello. Afterwards a cold buffet.
The Lord is faithful in all of his actions and we pray that this new meeting hall can be place where people from Umbertide can hear the clear message of salvation by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ.
