Together in God's Grace (Weekly Devotional)

Created: Sunday, July 23, 2017

Weekly devotional based on the sermon of Sun., Jul. 23, 2017

“Fearfully and wonderfully made” is how the psalmist David describes in what fashion God created us. With awe and thanksgiving, we receive God’s gift to us, always received but never achieved. How great is our God who bestows upon us such mercy, grace, and love!

May we listen to God’s call, may we take any and every opportunity to grow anew in our faith, and may we live our lives by example – focus our hearts and minds on what really matters.

In Christ’s precious name,
Pastor Anette

In God's Glory (Weekly Devotional)

Created: Sunday, July 16, 2017

Weekly devotional based on the sermon of Sun., Jul. 16, 2017

As called and sent by God, the believer is never alone! Walking with the Lord is a never-ending adventure, one that keeps on surprising as well as amazing. To have and to receive is never a question, hence God has grant us eternal grace and merciful love. As ambassadors of God’s love and peace, we have reason to expect good things to come about.

At times, our journey may be challenged with hardships small and great. However, believing in the ONE whose salvation is a sure thing. We know and hold dear to our hearts His presence in whatever we do, and wherever we go – so great is He, the Lord our God!

In Christ,
Pastor Anette

What Do We Crave? (Weekly Devotional)

Created: Sunday, July 9, 2017

Weekly devotional based on the sermon of Sun., Jul. 9, 2017

For the beauty of all God’s creatures, there is a purpose with all living things, from the smallest to the largest of beings. God, whose love goes beyond all human understanding, graciously and generously pours into our lives that which only comes from above. Indeed, how great Thou art!

Through and through, the Lord feeds His flock. As we hunger, God provides for our needs. As a result; we hunger and crave more of the Lord’s spiritual food, which helps us to grow in our faith. May we linger and long for more, from the ONE whose being knows no end!

In Christ,
Pastor Anette

June Church Garden Update

Created: Monday, June 26, 2017

Talk a walk through our church garden and be amazed. The stragglers have survived, much to our dismay - nature's way of letting us know who is in control! The kale, calaloo, mustard greens, and collards have all puled through, the cucumbers are still wavering, but the squash are off to a good start. Cabbage and lettuce are forming heads, and the raspberries and strawberries are ripening. Their sweetness (never mind their size) will supply all the sugar you need in your diet!

In addition to mint, chives, and sage, our garden now has dill, rosemary, and lemon balm ready. Coming soon: basil, thyme, parsley, and lemon grass.

Please remember that we accept all donations for the garden. Send them to the church office.
