The traditional open air service of the evangelical churches of Gedern was held in the Gedern district “ Schönhausen”. The sister cities of Gedern organized it and served food and drinks. There was wonderful weather and the service started at 2:00 p.m. So many people visited the service that the tent, where the service took place, was too small. Many people had to sit outside and listened to the sermon, which was held by the retired pastor, Mr. Opper. Pastor Flos from Ober-Seemen organized the service and the trombonist group of the Gedern church, conducted by Horst Kissel, performed the music.
After the service the members of sister cities Gedern served cake and coffee, bratwurst and cooled drinks. Special thanks to the kids of the student exchange of the comprehensive school for their help.
