Give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love

UNFAILING                                                                                    It’s a big word, stretching into every upcoming minute and hour, day and year.  Past the end of life itself into all eternity. Unfailing. It holds firm, never giving way, no matter what weight or stress is placed upon it.

Unfailing love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Such is God’s love, seen in the person of Jesus who, as good shepherd, gave his all for each of us – protecting, saving, forgiving, extending fullness of life.

This Thanksgiving, receive … and give thanks.

(The churches of Abbotsford, giving thanks together!)

Sept 17 – Axel Schoeber

Axel Schoeber was our special guest pastor on September 17. He has been an elementary school teacher and a Baptist pastor for 27 years in Jasper, Calgary, Penticton and Victoria. He also served for eight 1/2 years as Associate Professor of Supervised Ministry at Carey Theological College. He has become a consultant for online theological course design, and delights, with his wife Karen, in his family of two adult children, their spouses, and two (soon to be three) grandchildren. Axel has also coached youth soccer at the provincial competitive level.

If you missed it, his sermon on the complexity of forgiveness was worth hearing.

Kid Connect will begin Sunday, September 17.  It is open to children up to grade 6.  Parents of preschool children who are new to our program should accompany their children for the beginning sessions.  Registration forms will be available.
