I am so excited for us to kick off our new series "Labeled" this Sunday! We are going to spend the next 6 weeks diving into the book of Ephesians. We've all had people label us. Your boss may tell you that you're slow. A classmate might have whispered that you’re dumb. Your wife might sigh that you’re lazy. Your ex-boyfriend might have told you that you’re ugly. You never asked for these labels. The world may say a lot of things about you, but God only speaks truth. The labels HE puts on you are the only ones that matter! And he says you are: Loved. Chosen. Strong. Gifted. Check out the preview video for the series HERE.
I'd love to encourage you to invite someone this Sunday who needs to hear that they are CHOSEN and loved by God!
Mosaic is growing! The past 3 weeks we have been averaging 238 people each week. Last spring we were averaging about 165 each Sunday. With that comes some growing pains. This past Sunday we had 15 preschool kids in our preschool room during first service and 12 toddlers in the 1-3 year old room! That's a lot of little kids!! We love kids at Mosaic and we are so thankful for all the little ones that come on Sunday! Overall, 64% of our Sunday morning attendance is coming to first service. I would like to ask you to consider making the switch from attending the 9:30 AM service to attending the 11 AM service. If attending the 11 AM service doesn't work for you or your family, no worries! Keep coming to the 9:30 service! However, if 5 or 6 families/couples could make the switch from 9:30 to 11 AM, that would really help us out!
Sunday's podcast is online HERE.
We are also going to experiment with uploading the video of Sunday's sermon each week for the next couple of weeks. If people are watching the videos, we'll keep doing it! You can watch Sunday's sermon here: https://vimeo.com/187711196
Saturday, Oct 29. Men's Bonfire! 6:30-8:30 PM at Jeromie Smith’s (6952 Weaver Lake Dr Maple Grove, MN 55311) house. Fire, food, and fun times with other dudes from Mosaic! As a church we believe in creating community by eating together and playing together. This is a great opportunity to do that!
Sunday, Oct 30: Superhero and Princess Sunday! At Mosaic, we believe that church should be fun! We want Mosaic Kids to be the best hour of your kids' week! Superhero and Princess Sunday is one way we do that! Have your kids dress up as their favorite superhero or princess! We'll have some Disney Characters at church that Sunday that your kids can take their picture with! We'll have prizes for kids who invite their friends to come visit Mosaic that Sunday. It's going to be a great day!
Thursday, November 3: Starting Point. Starting Point is a one time, 90 minute gathering at Pastor Erik’s house. Whether you are just checking Mosaic out or you have been attending for a while but still don’t feel “plugged in”, the goal of Starting Point is to help you get to know Mosaic and help you take your next step. (This class is one of the requirements to be a partner with Mosaic).
Sunday, November 13: Baptism Sunday. We believe that growing people change. Maybe your next step is getting baptized? Baptism is the outward symbol of the inward decision to follow Jesus. Never been baptized by immersion? You are never to old to be baptized! Maybe this is your next step in your spiritual journey!
Thanks friends! Have a great week! See you on Sunday!
