ec jems welcome party 2014-10-17 flyer front

Wir sind ec-jems, eine Gruppe junger Christen (ab 18 J.), die sich auch sonst immer freitags, 19 Uhr, in den Jugendräumen der Evangelischen Gemeinschaft Marburg-Süd (Schwanallee 37, 35037 Marburg) trifft. Wir hören auf Andachten, beten, diskutieren, lesen in der Bibel, haben Gemeinschaft und hin und wieder auch eine Freizeit.

Unser Treffen am Fr. 17. Oktober 2014 wollen wir ganz bewusst auf Kennenlernen ausrichten, denn Du und viele andere, ihr seid herzlich eingeladen in ec-jems: reinschnuppern, anschauen, kennenlernen –  willkommen!

EC steht übrigens für „entschieden für christus“ und jems für „junge erwachsene marburg süd“. Letzteres spielt auf unsere Gemeinde an, zu der wir als Gruppe gehören und in deren Gottesdienst auch die meisten von uns gehen. Mehr Infos zur Gemeinde findest du hier unter dem Link

Warum wir eine Welcome-Party machen, versteht sich von selbst. Wenn nicht, schau dir mal das Projekt studiEC an. Unsere Gruppe ist übrigens offen für alle jungen Christen, egal ob Student oder Azubi oder Berufseinsteiger, egal ob du schon vorher in so einer EC-Gruppe warst oder nicht: Willkommen!

Hier bist du auch willkommen, wenn du gar kein Christ bist, aber wissen willst, worum es bei uns geht und wie wir das gestallten. Immer wieder schauen bei uns auch „Suchende“ rein. Gerne zeigen wir dir gelebte christliche Gemeinschaft und warum „Evangelium“ die „Gute Nachricht“ heißt. Kurzum: Willkommen!


Einen Überblick über kirchliche/ christliche Gemeinden und Gemeinschaften in Marburg findest du übrigens auf der Homepage der Evangelischen Allianz Marburg.

Für Rückfragen stehen wir dir gerne zur Verfügung – siehe Kontakt.

about us and our ministry – Evangelische Gemeinschaft Marburg-Süd

The Evangelische Gemeinschaft Marburg-Süd, literally Protestant Community Marburg-Süd, is an open and growing christian community in the middle of the south part of Marburg. Our name says it all: „For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them“, (Matthew 18:20).

And in his name young and old people come together in big and in small groups in our church: The kids have their place in the youth group and can get rid of their energy at the Funta-Kids. Even teenagers are not left out, they have a place to meet every Saturday at ec-teenkreis sola4you.  If they become older, starting at age 18, Friday is their evening with ec-jems.  You find small-groups for all age groups. And our elderly gather every Monday for Monday-Bible-Study-Group in our church building in the Schwanallee 37, Marburg.

These are just the regular groups and meetings. One sees in the community each has a place – even you: Welcome!

What is important in our community work, we have tried to summarize in a few sentences – our parish mission statement:

 Win people for Jesus,
 Encourage Christians in faith,
 live for the glory of God.

What is important to us:
• We trust the Bible as the Word of God, our guideline.
• We are committed to the worship of God – in songs, prayers, attitudes, conversations and actions.
• We participate in mission in our city and around the world.
• We encourage people in discipleship, offer pastoral care and take them also true.
• We want to recognize our gifts and use them.

Our church is financed entirely by voluntary donations from our members and friends. Through these gifts, it is possible for us to send in full-time two Christians in the community work (the Youth Pastor and the Preacher). They set in with full force for the community work. But not alone because our community thrives on the volunteer work of many members and friends.

Our church is headed by an elected Directing Board, assisted in the ongoing work of the so-called Staff Forum. In this forum, besides the Board all team leaders (children, youth, public relations, social welfare, …) come together. For big and important questions the entire community is involved.


We as a community do not live isolated (Ephesians 4:15-16). All around us there are a number of churches, congregations, free churches, communities, Christian groups and works. With our brothers and sisters in the Lord, we are actively connected in ecumenical networks, such as the Evangelical Alliance Marburg.

Our work with children and young people, for example ec-jems is organized in Christian Endeavor (CE). Here, Christian Endeavor (CE) runs under the name Entschieden für Christus (EC) – which basically means the same thing: ‘Decided(ly) for Christ’.

ec jems marburg young group church

Our group, ec-jems (Entschieden für Christus – Junge Erwachsene Marburg-Süd, literally „Christian Endeavor – Young Adults Marburg South“), is one of many CE youth ministries in Germany. We (usually) meet on Friday at 7 pm in the youth rooms at our chapel at Schwanallee 37 in Marburg (Evangelische Gemeinschaft Marburg Süd – close to the bus stop Radestraße) for worship, discussion, prayer, fellowship, sharing life and faith together, fun activities, meeting new people, encounters with God, getting to know each other … AND YOU ARE DEFINITELY WELCOME!

ec jems marburg christian

As you may have guessed already, our group is called „Marburg South“, since ec-jems is a part of Evangelische Gemeinschaft Marburg-Süd, a protestant congregation in the Southern Quarter (Südviertel) of the city of Marburg.

Most activities in our congregation are not offered in English. However, there there are many people who speak English well. We also have an English Speaking Bible Study Group, which freshly started out just this month.

Finally, here are some important points that reflect our beliefs as Christians. If the bulk of them seems too daunting to you right now, don’t worry and just come by and have look at our group in person – and see how we (try to) live what we believe in.

We believe that all young people:

  • are loved and are unconditionally welcomed by God;
  • are created by God for service and significance;
  • are called by Jesus Christ for mission and ministry;
  • are vital to the life of the church of Jesus Christ.


Christian Endeavor aims at:

  • encouraging young people to commit their lives to the service of Jesus Christ;
  • training and equipping young people to live daily for Jesus Christ and to serve in his church, in their communities, and the world;
  • mobilizing and empowering Christian young people to build the Kingdom of God;
  • providing fellowship to grow in Christian faith and life.
