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

Dianne and I have spent a “few” hours this week in Fantasyland. We worked as extras in a movie that is being partially filmed here in the Moab area. My son Kyle and daughter-in-law Amanda and daughter Dayna were also involved. Mostly the job requires hours of sitting in the sun waiting for a few minutes of being “background” for the camera. It was fun and we had an adventure. Here are a few take a-ways from the experience. Some of these film people do work very hard under difficult conditions. Getting a shot right is not an alternative. Since the film crew represented at least four countries it seemed to provide evidence that various cultures can come together to accomplish a difficult task. (But there are obstacles to overcome.) Following orders is not optional. Getting enough fluids during a day in the sun is a full time job. Sleep at the end of a long day is a wonderful pleasure. A number of people who don’t know anything about each other can come together and the experience of doing something together creates some interesting bonds. But you probably knew all this. There are some parallels to being the church here.

Doing ministry well requires lots of work and at times under difficult circumstances. But in our case God is always there to lift our burdens and create special blessing from the sacrifices. Although we all come from somewhat different spiritual experiences and have different backgrounds with a little patience and determination we can still make things work. (But there are obstacles to overcome.) Being obedient to the Lord is not optional for us. There is always a consequence for our disobedient. The spiritual nutrition that we need everyday is something we need to be aware of throughout our day. (You can’t drink enough in the morning to last). We need to keep the spiritual cup full throughout the day. God does give us rest. We can take joy and even pleasure in the time He gives to us to relax in Him and to enjoy His wonderful world.

And finally a group of people like the church who may not know each other really well can still come together and have an amazing experience that creates some very significant bonds in the group. I will probably never work as an extra again but I will continue to be a part of God’s church as long as I live. The church is the real adventure where lives are really changed and people can be who they really are. We don’t pretend to be the church. We are the church! Thank you, Jesus.    -PK
