promo w/ Pastor Schaller

HIBI (Helsinki International Bible Institute) is coming to town! Check out our new promo video for this summer's intensive Bible training here in "The Sink" a.k.a. Helsinki City.

a day out

We had our "bros only" youth night this weekend with an amazing guest speaker: Pastor Juha Haatanen. It was a great time, one for the record books! Pastor Juha got real personal with the young guys and the words were deep. Our calling, having a personal relationship with Christ, taking new steps of faith, decision-making with God, all of these topics stirred our hearts as the fire warmed our boots (and burned some hands!). One of our youngest guys was grilling our youth leader (Jouni) about when the next outing like this would be. There's a hunger in these young men... a hunger to know Him who has redeemed us.
Pray for the "bros" here in Helsinki.

eurocon '13

Eurocon. The highlight of every year, at least on this side of the Atlantic. So many faces, stories, and memories. The messages were sharp. The theme, taken from 2 Tim. 1.7, seemed to penetrate through the European atmosphere right to our hearts. The challenge now is to take this Word and mix faith with it in our detail-filled lives. Put it into practice.

We had our first church service in Lahti the weekend before last and we anticipate great endeavors of the Spirit in that place during the coming Spring. Keep our Helsinki Church, Bible School, Youth in prayer as always. Also the possibility of starting a new event geared towards youth in Lahti is on the horizon.

The Word is not bound!
