Christmas services in 2017

 

We had two christmas services in the 24th of Dec. because the 24th was Sunday in 2017,first the christmas day service, and the christmas eve service later in that night.

 

Children attending the Sunday school and sisters played Nativity Play during the Christmas service. We enjoyed special lunch together after the service.

 

At the night, we had the christmas eve service. We read the bible story, sing hymns, and put lights on candles. We thought about the birth of Jesus Christ and appreciated it during the service. 

Easter in 2017

 

The Easter service was held on the 16th of April, 2017. 

We appreciate to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with the congregation. Children in Sunday school sang hymns especially for the service. Also, we had a new guest and people who hadn't been here for a while.  After the service, we had special lunch together.  

Good Friday service was held two days before the Easter.  

Christmas services in 2016

 

The christmas eve service was held on the 24th of December.

We read the bible text written about the birth of Christ alternately,and sang the hymns between readings. Also, we had candle service.

 

The christmas service was held on the next day.  Children who join Sunday school gave the short play of the Christ and sang some hymns. They did their best.  We had special lunch after the service.

 

The christmas party for children was held on the 23rd of December. Children attending the Sunday school every Sunday morning and also attending the Summer camp last summer gathered this event. They enjoyed singing hymns, games, christmas play, watching DVD and so on. We could spend very nice time with children.

Easter for children!

 

A week after the Easter, we had Easter for children. 

Children taking part in the Sunday school and other friends joined  together for this Easter for children.  We are very grateful to have such an opportunity here. We expect it will last for our future.  

Happy Easter!!

 

The Easter service was held in the 27th of March and we had a wonderful worship. Especially, Mr.Yoshiya Horiuchi, Ms.Tomoko Sawamura and Ms.Etsuko Sawamura, who are also good friends of Sisters, gave us singing performance during the service. 

The service of Christmas eve's day was held in the 24th of December, from p.m.7:00. We celebrated the advent of Christ through having the candle service.  We could spend the time quietly with the light of candles and the night view of Kobe city which we could watch from the chapel of Motherhouse Bethel.
