Blessings to my brothers and sisters in the Lord at IBC Giessen and beyond,

I hope you are doing well, staying at home and protecting yourself and others from this deadly virus.

Just a few items of information so that you can know how to be involved with your church during this passion week.

  • Each Day we will post a short video for the resurrection eggs that tell that story about the true meaning of Easter.
  • In addition there will be a post giving you Scriptures as to what happened each day of this passion week.
  • On Wednesday we will have a live prayer meeting on Skype for all who can join us at 7 pm. You will have to send your skype name to Pastor Buddy so he can invite you to the meeting.
  • On Thursday we will have our Maundy Thursday service with a recorded message and a celebration of communion remembering the death of our Lord Jesus.
  • On Easter Sunday we will not have our breakfast together, but we will have a recorded message celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus.

If you have any questions or need prayer, please contact Pastor Buddy at cleonlr@aol.com

This is the Sermon for Palm Sunday:

There is also a Children’s Sermon in English and German

Because we live under the protection of the almighty God, we can rest confidently in His care.

              He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
              will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
              I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
              my God, in whom I trust.
(NIV 84) Ps 91:1-2
