On Sunday, May 7th just after church, Southern Connecticut welcomed Melissa Svindland as our new sister in Christ. Melissa studied the Bible with several of the married sisters and those in the singles for almost a year.
She was first invited to church by Deanna Reda, her co-worker at the time and later began studying the Bible. Melissa shared that as a child she was involved in a car accident and nearly lost her life, but God gave her a second chance. Melissa’s eagerness inspired the sisters who studied the Bible with her, comparing her faith and humility to that of the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8. She eagerly sought to understand the word and for her relationship with God.
We are so grateful to have her as our new sister in Christ!
