The community celebrated happily

Mitwitz – "built from living stones", this was the motto of the community celebration of the protestant church community mitwitz on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the community center.
The anniversary was opened with a festive service in the jakobskirche church, where pastor burkhard sachs gave the sermon. People are "living building blocks" the material from which god builds his church, he explained. That makes the building project particularly exciting, because no two stones are alike.
Pastor i.R. Heinz muller, under whose direction the "old school" was built the church, which was rebuilt and inaugurated in 1989, commemorated the event with a greeting. 25 years ago, when the massive tree removal was completed, the entire church community was happy that the building had been completed. Young people's group, women's group, senior citizens' group, children's choir, choir of the floten, church choir, trombone choir and the diaconia station were pleased with the new rooms. "At the same time we were all aware", so pastor muller "that this beautiful and with a lot of effort built house only makes sense if it is filled with life again and again."
So he was grateful that this had succeeded and that the community center showed clear signs of lively use. "It was good, dear mitwitzers, that you demanded, helped build and paid for this project back then." The festive service was musically framed by the gospel choir.
Afterwards, there was a colorful and varied program of festivities for young and old until the early evening hours. This includes, among other things, a traffic park in the parish courtyard for the children, a building block room, a play area and face painting for children.
The community festival was also enriched by a performance of the kindergarten, a book table, wood and knitwear sales, a rough tombola and a prize competition. Under the guidance of the mitwitz hobby historian friedrich burger there was the possibility to climb the tower of the jakobskirche and to visit the bells from the closest proximity.
There were information boards on the history of the old school and the origins of the community center. The youth group "teenkids poured cocktails. In the early evening hours, a "theatrical thriller" rounded off the event the community festival from: "bloody trail in the community center".
Half of the proceeds from the community festival will be used to maintain the community center, and the other half will go to the hospital ward of the partner deanery in tanzania.
