Meet Our New Office Administrator

Greetings! Blessed, and privileged to have been hired here, I know change is usually difficult for us all. Dianne leaves pretty big shoes to fill….. She is so amazing in every way, and I know she will be sorely missed in this office.Crystal Senter

Dianne has asked me to share a bit about myself… so here goes! After a divorce, I felt strongly about moving here to Moab. My parents (Larry and Laura Senter) have been here for 30 years and members of this church family for just as long. I have one son, Christopher (33) who is married and still lives in NH. I’m 53 years young… I love the Lord, people, and His creation! I look forward to meeting you, fellowshipping with you, and serving our church family! Please drop by the office to say Hi!

Working Pastor

Well, it is August. The weather is still hot. But there is a change in the air. Do you sense it? In two weeks school will be starting. Sport teams are practicing. Soon footballs will be flying, cheerleaders will be bouncing, and parents will be anxious for the outcomes.

I always thought of summer as three months long. Some how it has been reduced to two. We continue to attempt to push more and more things into our lives. Life gets louder but not wider. We think with all the activity, that we must be accomplishing Something. But is life really fuller... and are we happy with all the fuss? Jesus often called His disciples to rest. He would habitually seek silence and solitude for Himself. There is something spiritually energizing that happens when we draw away from the hustle, and calm our spirits before the Lord.

As we begin to consider a new school year and another busy round of activities that seek to call us away from our quiet times with God, we need to recommit to keeping those holy appointments with God. Busy after all is not bad. But busy without vitality is going to wear us out. You can’t run on empty very long. We do try sometimes. In the teaching of Jesus regarding the vine and the branches Jesus reminds us of this
important truth.

In John 15, Jesus says; 4Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.5I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Our times with the Lord help us to keep the life giving nourishment flowing into our lives, and thus when the activity starts there is fuel in the tank that results in fruit in the basket. Fruitful people, it seems to me, are generally happy people who understand that their lives have great meaning, even though they may not be doing great things in their own eyes. So here is the lesson Jesus is trying to teach me today. Slow down and wait for Me! God is always on time. So let’s take whatever time we need to be alone with God and even though time speeds up we will keep up. PK

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.

Bible Camp

Our Grand Mesa Church Camps are right around the corner. Here are the dates for the three camps we will be sending kids to in Colorado.

High School Camp: “The Alpine Zone”
June 18-24 (Entering grades 9-12)
Middle School Camp: “The Ascent”
June 24-29 (Entering grades 6-8)
Elementary Camp: “The Trailhead”
June 29-July 2 (Entering grades 3-5)

There are full scholarships available for any of these camps. Just contact our church office. Camp Registrations are on the Bulletin Board in the foyer of our Fellowship Hall. You need to have your family Dr. sign your 2017 Camper Health Form. The State of Colorado is very strict on their Camp Health Forms. Must have Immunization Forms filled out as well before you will be able to go to camp.

CONNECT WITH CONNECTIONSCome and meet people

Pastor Keith’s Connection Class “The Battle Plan for Prayer” has 4 more weeks to go. You are more than welcome to be a part of it on any given Sunday. We meet in the Sanctuary, at 11:15, right after our Fellowship Time. “The Struggle is Real...but so is the Power of Prayer” Join Us!

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.
