Blessings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
My name is Janelle Moser, and I am the newly-appointed, full-time pastor at Calvary United Methodist Church in Lawrenceville, PA. I was raised in the small town of Tunkhannock, and later moved to Luzerne, PA where I met my husband, George. We have been together for nineteen years now, and married for 11 years. Together, we have a soon to be fourteen-year-old daughter named Emaly, and two older sons, George and Greg.
I graduated from Tunkhannock, and pursued an education in graphic communication/printing. I currently have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Studies with emphasis in Biblical Studies from Grand Canyon University in Arizona, and I am actively pursuing a Masters of Divinity at United Theological Seminary in Ohio. I am a Licensed Local Pastor in the Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church, and I am moving toward becoming an Elder.
I entered into ministry in 2018. Since then, I have served at Bethel UMC in Dalton, PA and the Salladasburg/Larryville UMC charge. Serving God and His people is a true honor, and one that brings my heart great joy. I desire nothing more than to build relationships with others, and to reach out to those in need so that Christ is made visible within the community and throughout the world.
If I had to describe what kind of pastor I am, I would say that I am a shepherd of my people. I care for them, I love them and do my best to care for their spiritual needs. I tend to focus a lot of energy on the inward spiritual growth of the believer and building genuine relationships, both within the church and the community. I believe that being connected with one another through ministry and relationships, is vital for faithful discipleship. I also try to live and preach what I consider to be Christ’s most important lesson – “love one another” – love them all. Let the love we have received from Christ overflow into the lives of others, and in doing so, we become the hands and feet of Christ in the world.
My family and I are excited to begin our journey together! I look forward to getting to know each of you and growing in Christ together. May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you.
In His Grace,
