Paris-Filipino Seventh-day Adventist Church, France
This morning I went to the Paris Asian Seventh-day Adventist church, which is exactly the Filipino SDA church. It is a small very warm community. Even when there is an English-speaking Sabbath school class and the Divine service is partially held in English, the main part of the service is in Tagalog (or Filipino) : it's the language spoken by the majority of Filipinos. Today the sermon was held by a Filipino pastor coming from London. As other communities, a "potluck" is organized after the worship.
This community meets in the Lutheran church « Saint-Sauveur », following the example of the other communities who haven't got church.
This Lutheran church possesses a sober interior design and a stained glass in the purified style who remind the simplicity of the Protestant churches of the origins... in a modern version. I like very much.
The Sabbath day service takes places on the morning from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (Sabbath School and Divine Service).
