Love is in the air! 

Valentine’s Day Special at the American Church in Berlin featuring Gospel and Christian Pop music 

Valentine’s Day is a significant day for Americans. In the middle of cold February, lovers gift each other with flowers and sweets, and a romantic evening undertaking is imperative. One such opportunity will be on Saturday the 24th of February at the Lutherkirche at Dennewitzplatz, where the The Berlin Grapes of Vineyard Berlin and the Praise Band of the American Church Berlin (ACB) will be featuring a Valentine's Concert and fellowship. The music will be augmented with a fine art photography exhibition from young artists. 

The Berlin Grapes is a worship band from Vineyard Berlin, who passionately and authentically combines acoustic and electronic sounds with a brass section groove, creating their own special style. The musicians have been inspired by the American worship music of the Vineyard movement ranging between pop, rock, funk and jazz. With their own compositions and arrangements, the band creates a special atmosphere in which people are moved by both intimate moments as well as rousing rhythms. 

The ACB Praise Band is an integral part of the American Church of Berlin (ACB) and its repertoire consists of a Christian Pop, Gospel, Hillsong and Praise Music. This style of church worship music may be a bit unusual for German churchgoers since it is deeply rooted in the rock, blues and jazz of American music culture. 

The Valentine's Day Special is part of ACB's biannual Worship-Café concert series, where the church is transformed into a coffee house ambience. Admission to the ACB Worship Café is free. Doors open on Saturday, the 24th of February is 17 o'clock.



4th ACB Worship Café

Due to family and retirement needs in the USA, family Kienberger has been long discerning what time to return to the USA. Steve has been offered and accepted a new call in the USA. We are grateful for all they have done for us over the last 7 years. 

Steve's wish and request has been to use the upcoming ACB Worship Café on September 16th, 17:00-19:00 as the venue for a farewell potluck.

Everyone is welcome! 

Please bring light finger food, a dish or dessert to share as you are able to celebrate 7 wonderful years together with our dear Pastor Steve, Kristi, Elsa and Anna. 
Our Praise Band Leader, Eva Diesel, has offered to coordinate any contributions you might want to make (musical or spoken, no longer than 3 minutes; with limited spots available). Please contact Eva asap at: Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!


Let us celebrate a farewell to the Kienbergers and journeying together in Faith!



Love is in the air

Special Valentine’s Concert with Jazz and Christian Pop Music

at the American Church in Berlin

In the US, Valentine’s Day is a very big deal. In the middle of cold February, this festival of romantic love is celebrated by giving each other flowers, chocolates and gifts. Since this holiday would not be complete without that special date for two, start early with the Valentine’s Concert on Saturday, February 11 at the American Church in Berlin on Dennewitzplatz. Featured will be the Keller Band and ACB’s Praise Band, accompanied by an exhibition of artwork created by young artists from the John F. Kennedy School in Berlin.

One of the leading musical groups at the JFK School, the all-student Keller Band plays everything from jazz to world music. Together with the ACB Praise Band and its Christian pop repertoire rooted in rock and blues, love will surely be in the air.

The Valentine’s Day Concert is part of the Worship Cafe concert series at ACB.
