Our highlight every Sunday – Celebrations – our weekly church service. And they can be a little different: loud, cheerful and passionate, and of course Christmassy during Advent.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

BUY A STAR – GIFT HOPE
The fate of people from broken homes resonates deeply with us as a church. This year, too, we want to make a difference in our neighborhoods. We at ICF are in weekly contact with kids from broken homes around Switzerland and with kids from refugee camps in Northern Iraq. We want to build consistent relationships with them, giving them stability and hope. With your purchase of a star for 15 or 25 Swiss francs you make a Christmas present for one of these children possible.
Ideas for your Christmas season
With these ideas, you can bring Christmas to people around you who do not yet know Jesus personally.
Send the “Story of Christmas” videos daily to friends, neighbors and family. Or invite friends to watch the video Bible reading plan with you on the Youversion Bible app and share what you’ve heard via chat.
Invite friends for 3-4 meetings during Advent to talk about Christmas using “The Story of Christmas” videos and conversation guide (You can find it here on the German Webpage)
WITH LOVED ONES
No one should be alone – Invite friends to an Advent dinner and talk about Christmas. This is a great idea to plan a gettogether with your group and invite 1-2 friends.
