Sharing the Love of Jesus Christ with the Moab Community

Cookie Plates information

We have quite a few people in our community we want to deliver “Cookie Plates” to this Christmas. This is such an awesome way to tell someone we are thinking about them during this time of the year. We are meeting here at the church on Thursday, December 11th @ 10:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring 2-3 dozen of your favorite Christmas cookies. We will then make up the plates and deliver them. BUT before we start delivering, Linda Warren is going to share one of her favorite Christmas stories with us. This is always a treat. Everyone is invited to come.  

Friday Night December 12th  “Carol Sing”

We are doing something different and fun this year with Caroling. On Friday night, December 12th @ 7:00 p.m. the Moab Community is invited to come to Community Church where we will have an evening of singing Christmas Carols. Fran Townsend, Martha Hefner and Linda Warren are put-ting this together for everyone to enjoy! We are calling it a “Carol Sing”

Children’s Christmas Program and the Birthday Party for Jesus on Sunday

On Sunday, December 14th we will be having a Children’s Christmas Program during our Worship Service @ 10:00. The children need to be here by 9:45 a.m. and should wear Christmas colors. Tracy Renn is directing this Program. Then at 11:00 the Christian Education Board is hosting a “Birthday Party for Jesus” in our Fellowship Hall. A Pizza lunch will be served as well as games, crafts and a Birthday Cake. Everyone is invited to attend.

EVERYONE CAN SERVE

Looking for a place to serve? We have just the spot for you! We are needing a couple more Sunday morning hostesses for our Fellowship Time. Contact the church office or Betty Drake. Thanks!

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.

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.

Emmanuel! God is with us! This indeed is the message of Christmas. For God so loved that He gave. The gift was magnificent. I hope that I can keep my mind on what Christmas is all about this year. I always try but there are so many distractions! The “have to do list” seems to expand to an almost impossible length. That is exactly what the adversary of our souls would like to happen to all of us. “Just keep them busy and they won’t realize what they are missing”. He is so subtle and yet we know, don’t we, that his tactics can get us if we aren’t intentional to resist. So lets make that a top priority this year.

Focusing our celebrations on the Lord and His love for us is always the best way to thwart the devil’s desire to blind us to the blessings. I am always delighted when I hear of or am able to help people who are looking to be a blessing to a needy person or family at Christmas time. Now you’re right, that we should be that way all through the year, but doing so at Christmas just seems like the right thing to do. So may I be an encouragement to each of us in the church to find someone around us and give that helping hand. It means so much to those who need us but it means even more to those who are willing to help. And don’t’ forget that it means a great deal to our Lord who directs us to love each other in this very practical way.

I just received word this morning that an old friend, Leonard Walterscheid, passed away in Grand Junction this morning. His beautiful wife Betty was instrumental in our coming to Moab twenty eight years ago this Sunday. His passing and that of a number of others who have left us these last few weeks, does remind me of how important the ministry is and how wonderful the message we have to share. Jesus came to rescue us. It is at our passing that we fully comprehend how amazing that gift is. So let’s be sure and share it along with our money and our time this year.

May you have an amazing Christmas season! Take part in lots of parties and Worship and have loads of fun. At the same time lift up the name that is above every name. The name by which we can all be saved. He came and we are so blessed that He did.    -PK
