Pastoral Search Update
We have received over 25 resumes. The committee has carefully and prayerfully reviewed each resume as well as any statements of faith and in some cases either audio or video sermons. We have selected several candidates that we think may be a possible fit for our church. Each of these have been emailed a questionnaire that will let us further evaluate them. The same process will be used as we continue to receive additional resumes.
Once we have selected promising candidates, then we will interview each individual either by phone, video conferencing or possibly in person. At that time, more specific questions tailored to the individual will be asked and the candidate will be able to ask the committee specifics about our church. References will then be pursued.
The church website has also been updated to include a “Frequently Asked Questions” section to provide more information for the congregation. We invite the congregation to submit additional questions or comments to your committee.
Each of you should have received a Prayer Card. Have it in a visible place and continue to pray for our church, our future pastor, your committee and of course Pastor Keith and Dianne.

What is a Community Church?
Monthly From Pastor Keith
Keith’s Quill – August 2020
A very wise pastor and a very good man visited me during my first month of my first full time pastorate. He shared with me a verse from I Timothy. Actually he wrote it long hand in a handbook that he also gave me. His name was Marshall Shirer. In the New English translation the verse reminds us of this. “The aim of our charge (ministry) is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.”
This has been my mission statement over all these years of ministry. For me, to help people on to love has been my purpose and prayer. I know that means love that comes as a result of one’s faith in Jesus and the virtues that then surface in a faithful believer’s life. As I end my professional ministry it really is my prayer that God has enabled me to help believers to be loving servants of our Lord Jesus. I know that I have seen that in your lives as we have lived our lives together in the context of Christ’s Church. May love will continue to dominate everything we do.
Since this is the last quill that I will be writing it is important to me that I spend some time here thanking you that have served our church. What an amazingly wonderful people you are. There are far too many to thank each person individually. I wish I could. It is a very long list. You have gone far beyond normal to help and support Dianne and I through these years of ministry. And sense this article may very well go beyond Moab to a number who have supported and encouraged me over the years this thank you is for you too. I don’t feel like I have deserved the blessing that have come my way because of you. But know that as long as the Lord gives me the ability to remember anything I will be remembering you. If you could do one more thing for me, would you continue to serve our Lord with all your hearts and all your minds.
The next pastor of this church will be a very fortunate person. The reason that is, is because of you. Continue to seek the face of our Lord in all things. Be happy. We have gone through some deep water together over the years, but the Lord has brought us through every time, and He will continue to be faithful. Dianne and I want you all to know that we love each of you and that each one of you have been a blessing to our lives in some way. We plan for the time being to be around Moab until the Lord gives us a new plan. I will not be your pastor, but I will always be your friend. Give to your new pastoral family all the love and support that you have given to us.
The church will continue to be a light to the Moab community and a blessing to God. “The future is as bright as the promises of God.”
