Visit from German Companion Synod

April 11, 2023

We are excited to welcome our friends from the German companion synod in the Augsburg and Swabia District of the EKDB (Evangelical Church in Bavaria).   

Bishop Axel Piper, Sabin Piper (Bishop Axel's wife), and Pr. Christoph Burger will visit our synod from Wednesday, April 12, through Monday, April 18, 2023.

Their trip will start in Nashville, head to Atlanta, and finish in Savannah, GA.   

In Nashville, our visitors will learn about the "Building Healthy Families" program with Inspiritus and visit with our Nashville partnership congregations.  In Atlanta, Bishop Piper and Pr. Burger will be preaching at the 9am and 11am services, respectively, on Sunday, April 16, at Lutheran Church of the Reedemer.  In Savannah, we will be signing an updated agreement between our two church bodies.  This will extend our partnership by ten years.

Please keep them in your prayers as they make this helpful journey.
