We are now studying of the gospel of John and are asking "who was Jesus?" and "what do I need to do about it"? This study will show you how easy it can be to lead a friend or small group in learning more about Jesus--a perfect tool for deployment. Learn more here.  

​(Please get your Tourist Passport so you can join us when we travel outside Germany!) ​​

 Wednesday lunch Bible discussion for working women

Welcome! If you're interested in good friends, good fun, good food, and a great God, or maybe you're not sure there even is a God, are curious about Jesus, or are just looking for a different way to spend your weekends, then the Vilseck House is for you (read more)...
Beginning in January, we'll start a new six-week series Kingdom Man - Every Man's Destiny; Every Woman's Dream. When a man follows the principles of biblical manhood, those around him benefit from his leadership and care. Kingdom Man challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them.
.
Men, come and learn with us--contact us for more info!

 Chapel involvement

Men, join us Wednesdays ~11:45~12:45 at the Chapel. Lunch is provided. If you're running late or can't stay long, please come anyway and join us for a few minutes! Our hope is that this time would deepen your familiarity with God's Word, your relationship with Christ, your connection with others, and your impact for God's kingdom. Our current Bible study is the book of Galatians.  
While there are also good churches off Post, military chapels offer strategic opportunities. We're excited to be involved with the Rose Barracks Cavalry Chapel (Bldg 218) and invite you to join us: 

 Saturdays, weekends, special stuff... 

 Friday nights

7:45 study: After dinner we have an informal Bible study and discussion. Come and learn with us!

Need a ride? We (or others) almost always pick people up in front of the Warrior Zone Java at 6:15pm. Just call to confirm someone's coming...
6:30 dinner: Each Friday, come and enjoy a great home-cooked meal! If you'd like to bring food, it's always helpful--thank you! 
​​​​​​Childcare goes from 6:30-9:30. Please call ahead to confirm childcare, and please feed your children dinner before coming—thanks! 

.

Bunk rooms: If you'd like an occasional retreat from the barracks on weekends and don't mind being part of our family, let us know! We've got a room or two for the guys and another for girls. 
Ladies, if you're not able to be part of Tuesday mornings at the chapel (see below), then join us for lunch and Bible study / discussion each Wednesday from 1140-1240 across the street from the theater in building 301 (German-American Club building in the PX / BK parking lot). Lunch is provided.
