I hope you are all having a great summer so far! We have some really great events coming up so please read through the rest of this email carefully to find out more about some great opportunities to connect with God and to connect with others.
Before we get to our list of events, I wanted to highlight our first official business meeting coming up on August 20th. This is where we as a church will officially adopt our church constitution, recognize our first batch of Mosaic Partners (members), and vote on our first Nominating Committee and vote to affirm our Transitional Governing Team (board). If you are interested in becoming a Partner at Mosaic, I would love to talk with you about the process for that. There are three main steps to becoming a Partner: go through the Starting Point Class, meet with me for a short interview, and sign the Partnership Covenant Agreement. If you have any questions about any of that, please don't hesitate to send me an email or give me a call.
