As I looked around at the 64 adults and kids talking to each other and enjoying some tasty desserts, I couldn't help but offer up my deepest thanks to God for bringing together such an amazing group of people! This past Sunday, our Launch Team gathered at Maple Ridge Church for our very first Launch Team meeting. It was a fantastic night as we were led in worship by Matthew Anderson and some of the other members of the team, heard some teaching, and then broke into teams. We ended the night with some hang out time as we chatted and enjoyed some delicious desserts. If you missed it, you won't want to miss our next meeting on June 7th (6:30-8:30 PM)! We'll let you know more details as we get closer.
A couple of "Family Business" Items:
1.) LOVING GOD:
We are starting a new initiate called "Friday Fasting and Prayer." We believe that as we build this church, it needs to be built on the foundation of prayer. So, we are asking people to set aside one hour on Fridays for prayer. I'll be fasting lunch on Fridays and I have reserved room 107 at the Maple Grove Library from Noon-1 PM. I would love to have anyone from the Mosaic team join me at the library for prayer! You don't need to stay for the whole hour- you can just come for part of the time. If you can't make it to the library, we would love to have you fast lunch wherever you are and spend some time praying during that hour.
2.) SERVING OTHERS:
We have offered to provide breakfast for the teachers and administration at Weaver Lake Elementary on Friday, June 5th. If you would like to help us serve and appreciate the teachers and staff, please let me know! You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
3.) MAKING DISCIPLES:
We believe at Mosaic that our mission is to make disciples who make disciples. The reality is, starting a new church and making disciples takes a lot of money! If you have committed to the Mosaic Launch Team and have made Mosaic your home church, we are asking you to consider giving generously to help support our mission. Our "front door" and the main way that people will first plug into Mosaic Church will be our Sunday worship service. As a brand new church, we need a lot of equipment to pull off a worship service! Over the next 4 months, we need to raise an additional $15,234 to help pay for: our trailer, signage, kids ministry supplies, sound system, screen and projector, and rent at the elementary school. We are asking you to please pray and consider giving on a regular basis to Mosaic Church. All donations are tax deductible. If you would like to give online, please visit: Mosaic Online Giving We don't take any giving for granted. We want to be good stewards of the resources God sends our way. If you have any questions about our budget, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to sit down and walk through the budget with you.
Thanks friends! I'm so glad I get to do this with you all!
