Sunday 26 March
Please remember to set your clocks ahead 1 hour on Saturday night when Europe changes to daylight savings time (summer time).
At 11h: We will start with coffee.
At 11h30: There will be a combined traditional and contemporary worship service. Elements from all three of our regular services will be combined into one. There will be music by the vocal and handbell choirs and Still Point, the contemporary service band. Take advantage of this rare opportunity for all our church family to worship together.
At 12h30: We will gather for the Congregational Conversation including a brunch buffet.
We Need Your Voice! God is at work! And yet as a community we don’t always get the opportunity to pay attention to the significant ways that God is moving among us. In this season of looking at the Biblical theme of Shalom (peace, unity, wholeness, love of God and neighbor, etc…) we want to listen for God’s voice echoing in each of our lives. It is for this reason that our congregational meeting will focus on a time of small group discussions on two specific questions:
1. What is one of your most significant experiences of God here at the American Church in Paris? Give details if possible. What happened, who was involved, how did it feel, what difference if anything did it make, etc…
2. At ACP what has most contributed to your sense of community shalom (peace, unity, belonging) even in times of conflict, differences of opinion, difficult circumstances?
Since we believe that the listening is just as important as the sharing, we hope that you can participate in these discussions on Sunday 26 March. Our leadership team will report back what we hear at our congregational meeting on 21 May 2017. Thank you for sharing.
Please plan to attend this Congregational Meeting, but if you cannot be present, make sure that your vote counts by filling out the proxy form (available here) and return it to the Council Secretary’s mailbox at Reception.
