From September 23-25, 2022, the Lutheran Church of Cheboksary, Chuvashia, hosted an informal meeting of young people from the ELCIR Uralic Deanery.
The event gathered participants from the nearest congregations in Cheboksary, Gurez-Pudga, Izhevsk, Kazan, Saransk, Yoshkar-Ola, and guests from St. Petersburg.
Pastor Artur Semyonov and Deacon Aleksei Lozhkin prepared Bible studies on spiritual gifts and the ministry of the Word. Darya Vasilyeva and Yekaterina Wilhelm facilitated seminars on the practices of personal and congregational Christian life and its challenges and blessings.
The meeting ended in a worship service in St. Luke’s chapel and a delicious dinner.
Many thanks to the congregation’s senior pastor Konstantin Subbotin and its members for the warm welcome!
