Our aim is to help children and young people find their way and a reliable foundation for their lives. Especially in our time, with juvenile delinquency and the decline of values getting out of hand, we see the need to restore Christian values and standards. As a result, Bible stories, cheerful songs and a variety of games are just as much part of our youth programme as sports, creative activities and convivial community. Our programmes include for example
- events with our “Kids-Mobil”,
- camping animation and tent worship services under our direction at Easter, Pentecost and for 6 to 7 weeks during the summer holiday season in Norden-Norddeich with the help of many voluntary workers from all over Germany,
- special day- and week-events for children and school pupils which we organise in cooperation with various church groups.
The church planting project “Sehnde Bible Church”
Here, our colleagues join others who, like themselves, live in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, are dedicated to helping the people in Sehnde and to offering them a new perspective for their lives with good news for the world.
To this end, quarterly brunch worship services are held at the “Mittendrin” community centre of the Sehnde Bible Church, as well as monthly children’s breakfasts, but also a number of other events for various target groups and age groups. The Bible Church also likes to take an active part in various events organised by the municipal council, local associations and business people.
The IAM (International Association for Missions) based in Hagen stands for church planting, projects for children and young people and international mission work.
The team in Sehnde/Hanover, Stephan + Daniela Scheifling and Achim + Monika Ullrich, are in charge of the IAM children’s outreach supra-regional work as well as the church planting project “Sehnde Bible Church”.
The employees have faith that their monthly budget for living expenses, vehicles, IT requirements, rents, office materials and all other costs incurred in their work can be financed entirely by donations.
Here, deister electronic has already provided valuable support on several occasions with donations of money and goods.
