A Tree and Its Fruit (Weekly Devotional)

Created: Sunday, September 16, 2018

Weekly devotional based on the sermon of Sun., Sep. 16, 2018

In order to give, one must first receive. God gives us this precious gift, through the Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We're being claimed as the children of God whose path ahead has been secured. Rest assured, our names are written in the Book of Lives, for in Jesus, there is no death, but life eternal.

In, with, and through the Son, we've been set free and delivered for the Kingdom of God, in whose name we'll always be victorious!

In Christ,
Pastor Anette

At the Crossroads (Weekly Devotional)

Created: Sunday, September 9, 2018

Weekly devotional based on the sermon of Sun., Sep. 9, 2018

When we find ourselves at the crossroads of our lives, we have the opportunity to reflect upon the journey that was and the path ahead for whatever will be.

Life takes us to places sometimes by surprise, and there are times when we marvel at God's mysterious ways. Rest assured, in the Lord our God's world, nothing happens by accident, and there's not a day that goes by without the assurance of His presence.

Have no fear, for God prepares us for endless possibilities ahead, hence the believer's journey is indeed an ongoing blessed adventurous path!

In Christ,
Pastor Anette

Pastor's Monthly Message (September 2018)

Created: Sunday, September 2, 2018

Dear Friends,

Having returned from an unforgettable, life-changing experience overseas, my cup of joy overflows! This heartmoving experience has been one I never thought was possible. My family also shared in this experience.

By now you may already have learned that my family and I will be moving back to my native country of Sweden where I have accepted a call with the Diocese of Karlstad. This move is by far a major change in our lives, when you consider that we’ve lived 25 of our years in this amazing and beautiful country with its unlimited possibilities.

Having said this, I never anticipated moving back to a country where God didn’t need my time, effort, and spiritual gifts. However, God’s Holy Spirit proved me wrong and led me to discern this prayerful decision over a period of 10 months.

With the Spirit’s move and direction, I’ve come to experience a blessing and a joy upon my heart that I cannot begin to fully express in words, which tells me this is extraordinarily divine.

Furthermore, never before have I ever felt a stronger sense of belonging to a ministry God has prepared me greatly during my 3 years and 7 months faithfully serving as your Pastor as well as being an active leader in the community.

With September before us, we anticipate the coming of Fall with all of its breathless beauty. Few times of the year brings us as much as anticipated change as this season. Considering the long period of hot and humid days this summer, I believe we’re ready to welcome cooler days ahead!

With my upcoming departure in October, I will continue to faithfully serve you with all the love, energy, and passion the Spirit has entrusted in me. Therefore, may the time before us continue to inspire and motivate our church’s many active ministries, and may the Spirit continue to move through and through within our hearts - ready to respond when the Spirit of God calls. Rest assured, He will.

In Christ’s Love,
Pastor Anette
