After last year’s positive response, we are happy to announce another creative art competition for our 2023 motto. You have until November 30th, 2022 to send in your unique artwork and win prizes! All details can be found below.

Our motto for the year 2023 will be “Serving and Reigning with Christ,” based on the following Bible verse and thoughts of our Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider:

“Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”
Revelation 20: 6

Let us learn to serve and reign with Christ.


  • Let us learn to serve and reign with Christ.
  • We serve Christ by attending the divine services and doing His will.
  • Thanks to Him, we can remain in control of our destiny.
  • We will serve Christ and reign with Him in the kingdom of peace, and then for all eternity in the new creation.
