Blessing of the deacons

Einsegnung der Diakone 02.04.17In the Bible we read in chapter 6 of the book Acts of the Apostles that the church leadership of the first Christian community in Jerusalem used deacons to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing community. We are glad and grateful that, as a community, we have grown so much that this step has now become necessary in the hope center. After three months of reflection and prayer, God has placed us on the heart seven members of our church for this ministry; As many as described in the Acts of the Apostles. In mid-February, there was already a first meeting of the municipal leadership with the deacons. In the worship service this Sunday, they were now officially blessed in their ministry.
