[The church right across from the school does not have a bulletin. But if it did, and if it were translated into English, it might look something like this.]
Why Tivadár, you ask? Aren’t we in Péterfalva? The village now officially called Péterfalva was historically two villages, Péterfalva to the north and Tivadárfalva to the south. The reformed churches in the area date to the period before the villages’ unification.
We ask that before you take your seat you please spend a short moment in prayer.
*Please stand as you are able
Pre-service singing (If you do not have a Hungarian Reformed Hymnal, please share with your neighbor. Additional hymnals are for sale in the entryway.)
*Opening prayer Led by the pastor
*Opening hymn (Please do not rush our singing. We recognize that the songs were not likely intended to be sung this slowly, but centuries of habit are not easily over-ruled.)
* Corporate Prayer
*Scripture reading (The pastor will re-read a small section of previous scripture for emphasis [and likely the part he will preach on specifically, but I can’t speak to that since I can’t understand what he’s saying].)
The Wednesday service will be at 4pm this week. Not 5pm like last week. Or 6pm as in the Autumn. This is to accommodate the farmers and the little old ladies who don’t want to walk in the dark (if you are a little old lady and object to being called a little old lady, we sincerely apologize, but you know it’s true).
We request that before you leave your seat you stand and spend a brief moment in prayer.
Our apologies for the chilly church! We haven’t got any heating here, so we hope that next time you’ll bring your coat and sit in a fuller row.
