Pastoral Search Update
Your committee has narrowed the search to three candidates. We have developed interview questions to determine more about their calling, future vision and goals, how they can enhance the health of our church, and how they will fit with our church family. These interviews by videoconferencing are planned for the week of October 5th . Once again, please pray daily for your church, our future pastor and this committee.
Student Assistance Fund
A new school year is beginning! You’re invited to join the ministry of the SAP Program by praying for our university students to grow spiritually, mentally, socially and physically according to God’s principles.
In addition to our prayer, they receive financial scholarships. You can support this ministry by designating your cash or check contribution to the SAP fund. Online giving is an option at moabcommunitychurch.com .

The Monthly Quill
Change is in the air! Seems most of the time changes in our lives can be challenging, uncomfortable and even unwelcome.
So how do we deal with it? How do we respond to the changing circumstances that we are facing? Daniel, Chapter 2 vs.21 says this,
“He changes times and seasons: He sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.”
The first statement made here, is in the word “He”. He, or God, is in control. (Breathing a sigh of relief here) Doesn’t it do our hearts good to know “He” is in charge? “He” is the one who provides the change. “He” is the one who sets those in power.
It’s not an easy thing to endure changes in our lives, especially when it concerns saying goodbye to Pastor Keith, who has been the shepherd of this flock for the past 34 years. Pastor Keith has been a faithful, trustworthy teacher of God’s word and a great example of God’s love to this community and our fellowship. We will miss him here at Community Church.
The season is changing.
As we wish Pastor Keith and Dianne a great retirement, and although they will be missed, we should be encouraged and even excited to enter this new season. We will welcome a new Shepherd. It is good to know that God gives Wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. We can be asking the Lord for wisdom and knowledge for ourselves, for our leaders, and for those in the Pastoral Search Committee.
We can trust the Lord. Jesus is our strength and the glue that holds us together as family. Seems as we face these changes, however uncomfortable at times, they are causing us to seek Him more, and that’s always a good thing!
1 Chronicles 16:10-12 Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always.
Rejoice! Even in these uncertain times. The Lord hears us, loves us and answers our prayers. I’m grateful for our fellowship, and grateful for those who are willing to give of their time and resources, regardless of the curve balls life seems to throw. In this new season, let’s work to draw closer than ever! Let’s call and encourage one another with our new calling ministry (Thanks Linda!) Let’s pray with each other, or just listen. Maybe send a card to someone… You will know, as the Lord leads and as we seek Him for His Wisdom, Knowledge and Discernment.
