FIBC Day 2016

You're invited to join us for our annual FIBC Day fellowship event, taking place this Saturday, September 24 from 11:00am - 15:00 and which will feature an international potluck picnic, games, and activities. The event will be held at Slotsalleen 15 in Klampenborg (there is street parking available and Klampenborg Station is only a short walk from the party).

Please note that, unlike in past years, we will not be grilling meat as the 'main course' of this year's picnic, so if you'd like to bring a potluck meat dish, go for it! Otherwise, please bring tasty sides, drinks, salads, and desserts to share! The event is 'rain or shine' and we hope you will plan on joining us on September 24th for this very special FIBC tradition. You can email pastors@fibc.dk with any questions.

*Other items to bring: picnic blanket, football, and/or a swimsuit for a post picnic plunge!

See you on Saturday!

Announcing Our 2016 Summer Sermon Series

“Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.” -GK Chesterton

Discipleship is a common word, used often in the church, that many people (even many members and leaders in the church) do not understand fully. This summer, FIBC is embarking on a nine part summer sermon series called The Living Mission: A Practical Guide to Discipleship that will help to clarify, demystify, and 'de-churchify' this essential Christian doctrine. 

Over this summer series, we will look to the life of Jesus Christ, his New Testament teachings, and the ways in which he impacted the world through his direct influence on individuals. Our goal will be to demonstrate how, in nine areas of life, we can each take the next right steps of faith - to “move the dial” of faith - and therefore actively grow as disciples of Jesus, and experience the spirit-led, abundant life that Christ promised to those who trust in and follow him. 

Join us this summer as we explore what it means to be a 21st-century disciple of Jesus of Nazareth.

Summer Sermon Series dates are July 3, 2016 - August 28, 2016, all worship services begin at 13:00 with a time of fellowship to follow each service.

Summer BBQ With The FIBC 'Parents With Young Children' Life Group

The FIBC 'Parents with Young Children' Life Group Summer BBQ

Story and Photos By Hiroko Skov

The FIBC 'Parents with Young Children' Life Group meets about once a month for playing, fellowship and learning about the Biblical principles for parenting. It is a great time for both children and parents and always includes some fun, good food, encouragement and support in our daily journey to fulfill God’s purpose in the world through our families.

Being entrusted with one of Gods small children is a fantastic gift as well as the ultimate responsibility. We feel blessed to be part of the Young children family life group where we get to share the journey with other families from all parts of the world.

These pictures are from our recent summer BBQ and picnic get together when we visited Cindy and Matt Nipper's new garden near Lesøparken, near Bispeberg. 

If you would like to learn more about the 'Parents with Young Children' Life Group or any of FIBC's Youth & Family ministries, please write to austin@fibc.dk and find out how your family can get plugged into the active, encouraging and supportive life of our church family. 

Church Picnic This Sunday, June 12

Potluck Picnic This Sunday!

Join us this Sunday, June 12 for the annual FIBC Summer Picnic Potluck, immediately following the worship service (which begins, as always, at Kristuskirken at 13:00). The picnic is an opportunity to celebrate the lovely summer weather, along with some shared food and causal fellowship in the park with our church family. 

This year's picnic will take place in the park just behind the church, so it is much closer than in previous years. There is a playground for the kids and lots of green space to spread out in. Remember to bring picnic blankets and some tasty treats to eat / drink and which you can share with others. We will provide coffee, you bring the treats and yourselves!

If you have any questions, please write to our church fellowship coordinator Cyndi (cyndi@yak.net). See you on Sunday!

A Night On The Town With The High School Life Group

For years, the FIBC family has included a number of amazing high school students who have been involved with our community in a variety of ways: from serving in the pre-school class to helping run the church Youth Group to participating in our annual mission trips to Poland. And at the core of this high school group, is the FIBC High School Life Group.

This spring we are "sad-happy" to say farewell to several members of our life group as they move on to their next adventure - university and adulthood! But before we let them leave Copenhagen and FIBC, we decided to send them off with a bang - spending an evening wandering through Nyhavn, dining at Copenhagen Street Food, and cruising Copenhagen Harbor on the super hyggelit Copenhagen GoBoats. 

Below are some snapshots from a golden evening spent together. As for the students soon departing Denmark: friends, you will be missed. But we have the highest hopes for the many great things to come in the days ahead. We hope you know that you will always have a home at FIBC.

blessed are we!

This Spring, FIBC was blessed to have our good friend Dr. Gene Selander with us for four weeks at the end of April and through the month of May. While he was with us in Copenhagen, Gene was kind enough to preach a four-part mini sermon series on 'The Beatitudes' of Jesus, from Matthew chapter five. 

Dr. Selander's sermons are jam-packed with challenging and inspiring insights that will certainly encourage and equip you this year. You can listen to his series on The Beatitudes on FIBC's Soundcloud page.
