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 ( 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.

Kristuskirken Work Day, Saturday, April 16


This Saturday, all of the congregations who share the Kristuskirken church building (including FIBC, ReGen, The Spanish Congregation, etc.) will be coming together to participate in a work day to do cleaning, maintenance, and organization at the church. Bottom line: these work days are few and far between and WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

Details: Kristuskirken Work Day, Saturday, April 16 from 09:00 - 14:00 (coffee and cake at 09:00, then we work)!

* Kids and Youth are welcome to help as well (no childcare will be provided).

** Remember to wear work clothes and durable shoes.

*** You don't have to stay until 14:00, especially if you are planning on joining the House Blessing event at Pastor Erik's house later in the day on Saturday.

**** Students needed CAS or other volunteer credits, this is a great opportunity for you.


On Saturday, August 22 FIBC organized our first ever Church Bazaar in the courtyard of Kristuskirken. By all accounts, the Bazaar was a great success - a day full of sunshine, fellowship, face painting, delicious food, and bargains, bargains, bargains.

Over the past few months, as the event took shape, different people in the church stepped forward as volunteers to manage tables selling gently used items, make delicious food to sell, and run fun activities as well as do the ever important set up and break down. Many others who could not attend donated items to sell and lifted up prayers for a successful event... and no rain!

The loppemarked (Danish for 'flea market') side was organized into departments featuring adult clothing, children's clothing, books, toys, music, electronics, household goods/miscellaneous. The food table overflowed with asian noodles, egg rolls, cookies, carrot cakes, pinwheel rolls, pizza rolls, pakoras, brittle, soda, juice, coffee, and tea. Cheery jazz music wafted through the air as faces were painted, cupcakes were decorated, temporary tattoos were applied, golf putts found their hole, and a haircut was given.

In looking back at our first church bazaar, we can count it as a success in many ways. First of all, all who participated had a great time. Secondly, we raised an impressive 15,000 kroner while reaching out to the community to let them know that we are a vibrant congregation made up of people who both love the Lord and each other. We also built relationships among ourselves by working side by side enjoying a fun day of fellowship in perfect weather. Of course, there were some things that worked better than others, and we will try to learn from those observations when we hold the next bazaar. 

Thank you to everyone who helped make the day special - each contribution was a blessing. If you have ideas on how to make the next Bazaar even better, or if you would like to help organize the next event, please talk to Cyndi at church or email
