Young Families

Young Families Bible Study (YFBS)


YFBS Group meets generally 2nd Saturday of every month at 15:00.
At our meetings we discuss parental and marital issues using highly recommended books/DVDs and the bible, while our kids are supervised by a babysitter. In these discussions we share our cultural experiences living in Austria, but being from Asia, America, Africa or Europe. We also enjoy coffee & refreshments and afterwards we often have a potluck dinner together. Currently there are about 12 families involved - children ranging from 0 to 12 years of age.
Please join us! Just contact Melissa Scherer (

Next Meeting: 13 November, 15:00 for ice skating 

Details: Get in contact with Melissa beforehand if you want to join.

We also regularly meet for fun activities:
Jazz concerts, Hiking & Heurigen, Picknicks, Playgrounds, Swimming, Sledding, ...  Latest Activity: Canoeing on the March River

At least once a year we spend a weekend at an Austrian farm for children.
Each May since 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 we have been at the Attersee (Check out the photos).
