MOSAIC COMMUNITY GROUPS
- This Fall, we will have 4 different Mosaic Community Groups: one will meet on Tuesday nights, one on Wednesday nights, one on Thursday nights, and then an Online Option
- Mosaic Community Groups will kick off the week of September 28th.
- Pastor Erik will be helping shepherd and lead all four Community Groups this Fall
- The primary focus of Community Groups will be to help people make and build friendships at Mosaic and together as a group learn how to practice the Way of Jesus. The secondary purpose of Community Groups is to help people discover their spiritual gifts and to have an opportunity in their Community Group to use their spiritual gifts in a safe, encouraging environment.
- Details about the Online Group: This will not be a "live" group (certain time each week) but will probably look like a private FaceBook Group where Pastor Erik will post a short teaching video and we will have people post comments and discuss when they are able to, based on their schedules. We will also put people into "Community Circles" of 2-4 people where you will be asked to connect by video a couple times a week with your Community Circle, either through an app like Marco Polo or through live video calls using FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom. (Texting and phone calls are also a great way to connect, but we want people to see each other's faces at least once a week).
This will allow people with changing schedules or those who work in the evenings to still have community and discipleship and the accountability of practicing the way of Jesus together in community. Pastor Erik be the moderator and leader for this Online Community Group.
A Few Final Thoughts About Community Groups:
1. We will not be requiring vaccinations or masks to be a part of an in-person Community Group.
2. Anyone is welcome to wear a mask to an in-person Community Group.
3. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you stay home and don't put your Community Group at risk that week. That goes for if you think you might have COVID or just a common cold!
4. If you have not yet been vaccinated, we are highly recommending that you talk to your doctor about getting vaccinated and to pray and ask God for his wisdom so that you can make the best choice for your health and your family. We recognize that this has been a divisive issue and our goal as a church is to be unified in Christ, to love our neighbors, and to extend grace to someone if they make a choice about vaccines or masks that is different than you.
