Be part of a group
We encourage all members of the church to be part of a small group. As well as groups for children and youth, there is a variety of adult groups to choose from:
Home groups are the main way church members can get alongside one another in way that isn't always possible at the Sunday meeting. Usually on an evening during the week, we gather in groups to study God's Word, wanting to help one another to understand and apply it so that we grow to know and love the Lord better, and are better equipped to live for him. Our hope is that as we grow closer to Him, so we will grow closer to one another. So, by praying together and caring for one another, members of a homegroup are wanting to walk alongside one another in the Christian life.
Home groups meet as follows:
7.00pm Paul-Heyse-Str., contact Russ
Russ and Bruni Bilowich host a new (mainly) English language home group on Tuesday nights in Leipzig Schönefeld. Eight to ten people currently attend. We are comparing Leviticus and Hebrews with our theme being: How can we approach a holy God. Since we are so new, we are still really flexible, but so far the plan is to start at 7.30pm with some singing/praise time, followed by digging into the Scriptures, then prayer and finally some time for fellowship/socializing with cake/tea/juice/etc. We plan on ending by 9pm each evening. Newcomers are welcome.
9.00am Women’s Bible Study (Bilingual), at Hickel's, contact: Mayke (child care available)
WOMEN WANTED!!! The women of the Women's Bible Study are curious to get to know you better. Every woman is welcome! We're a group of about 20 women, different in age, nationality and background who meet every Wednesday morning. On the 28th October we're starting with a new venue, a new topic (still a secret), and a new order. We'll start with tea/coffee and cake, building and cultivating friendships with a good chat. Then we'll split into two groups (English and German) for studying the word of God and praying in small groups. Afterwards we'll get together again - and chat - we're women! Interested? Ask Mayke for further information.
7.00pm Büttnerstr. at Mimy's, Leader: Axel
7.15pm Hans Poeche Str., Leader: Vittorio
The featured home group this month (Nov. 2015; hosts: Nora and Vitto Bilowich-Montauti) meets each Wednesday evening (other than the first in the month) at 7:30 pm for a meal together (pasta - if Vitto is cooking) and lots of laughing and fellowship. After that the group spends quite a lot of time reading and discussing a bible passage - there is just so much food for thought in the book of Matthew! If Vitto is leading then we even enjoy a creative PowerPoint presentation to guide us through the study. We finish the evening with prayer and dessert. Currently, around 9 people attend regularly
7.15pm Max-Beckmann-Str., Leader: Stefan S. (auf Deutsch)
Der deutschsprachige Hauskreis bei Seidels trifft sich Mittwochs. Um 19:15 geht es los mit Abendessen; manche kommen erst um 20 Uhr, wenn wir mit dem Bibelstudium anfangen. Wir lassen keine Themen aus, sondern beschäftigen uns mit dem ganzen Reichtum der Bibel. Aktuell lesen wir Johannes (Evangelium und Briefe). Um 21:00 teilen wir aktuelle Gebetsanliegen und beten, zum Abschluss gibt es immer auch Nachtisch ☺ Bitte bei Interesse zwecks Essen per E-Mail oder Telefon anmelden: 0341-4206048 oder Stefan Seidel.
7.30pm Nonnenstr., at Arne & Jayne's
You are welcome to visit the home group in Schleußig which meets at the Kaethners' home on Wednesday evenings from 19:30 – 21:30. This is a good opportunity during the week to connect with some of the LEC Family and enjoy fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee. We are an international group of approx. 8-10 people and, after singing a couple of songs, we take time to share and pray together before delving into God's Word to unpack and discuss a passage of the Bible. Contact: Jayne
