Everyone Can Serve

Look for opportunities to serve; don't wait to be asked!  Remember, you can serve without being a part of an "official" ministry. We all can:

  • Extend the word of welcome, whether or not we are official greeters
  • Be listening caring friends, whether or not we are offical lay counselors
  • Be ready to give reason for the hope that is in us, whether or not we are on the evengelism team
  • Be enthusiastic participants and ready to give a hand, whether or not we are on the planning or cleanup committees.Come and meet people

CONNECT WITH CONNECTIONS

Many of us who love the church, have found that one of the most powerful life changing aspects of the church is being in a group of people that help and encourage us along the way. In fact most churches that are experiencing real growth have discovered that groups are really the way to help people with their spiritual journey and ministry. To this end the Vision Team has been wrestling with the best way to launch some long-term groups that are shaped and centered in encouraging each participant and educating them con-cerning the themes and message of the Bible. So we are going to begin these kinds of groups in what we have formally called for a number of years discipleship classes. We would like to recognize the function of the groups by calling them Connections. The emphasis being that of connecting with others and establishing the kind of contact that issues in accountability and its resultant fruit i.e. peace, joy, love. We expect some evolution in how these groups operate. What we do have is a beginning date: Sunday September 21st. More information will be coming up. (Watch weekly bulletins) This is going to be a significant opportunity for you and yours. It will include all ages. There will be new groups forming for those who consider themselves young adults that will be meeting at different times and perhaps in different loca-tions. If you feel disconnected this may be your time to find that connection in your church.

Working Pastor

March is upon us! What is it that you think about when you think of March? It might be basketball and March Madness. It might be major league baseball or baseball and softball that begin at every level. Or if you are a runner in Moab, you have to be thinking of the Canyonlands Half Marathon. Having the marathon in March generally means that you had better be prepared to run in the wind. As I have been thinking about walking in the Spirit and bearing the fruit of that experience, it occurs to me that there is a correlation between running in the wind and walking in the Spirit. Right off the bat (for you baseball fans) there is one thing that is very clear. It is much harder to run into the wind then it is to run with it. As believers it is much easier to live our lives with the Spirit of God in control (walking in the Spirit) then it is to live without the Spirit (running into the wind). The difference obviously is support. Jesus said whoever is not with me is against me. So if we are with Him the Spirit is at our back and if we resist Him, well you know. I have noticed it is not hard running into a light breeze. It seems like air is pushed into your nostrils or throat and breathing is easy and a light breeze isn’t bad. It even cools one off. But let me tell you when the wind begins to howl you had better be running the proper direction. There is no benefit to being without the power of the Spirit when life gets really brutal. Running in the canyons the wind is always variable. Each curve may bring a different experience with it. So life is a bit unpredictable and uncertain. We never really know when the challenges will be about to strike us. So it is always good to be prepared by having the Spirit at our back. As we have seen in the messages thus far in the series on the Fruit of the Spirit, there are obvious indications that we are or are not in the Spirit’s control. They are those fruit that are produced by His presence; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These are windbreakers for sure. They allow us to run into the winds of life with a new perspective. It still isn’t easy but it is now possible to run and to run to victory.

Kari Jobe in her beautiful melodic song, puts it powerfully. “In the fire I will not be overcome, through the valley of the Shadow, I will not fear. You will go before me, you will never leave me. I am not alone, I am not alone. You will go before me-you will never leave me. I am not alone.” This promise is ours when we seek the presence of God by the work of Christ and through the power of the Spirit. Hear the truth in this old Irish Prayer of Blessing.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

-PK
