Pentecost celebration in Switzerland

GCI’s Swiss church hosted a festival on Pentecost weekend in the picturesque village of Hegne by the shores of the majestic Lake Constance, famous for being where Austria, Germany and Switzerland connect. People from all three countries attended and, afterwards, an Austrian delegate was baptized by Toni Püentener, an elder serving our Swiss members and contacts.

Guest speaker at the festival was European Mission Developer James Henderson, who spoke about how the Spirit includes us in Christ’s church and about how each of us is special to God, our Father. Social activities included an informal get-together with laughter and appreciation for how God has blessed his church with talented people.
