Hey Mosaic Friends-
Superhero and Princess Sunday
This Sunday is Princess and Superhero Sunday! We are encouraging kids to wear their costumes to church on Sunday and they can get their picture taken with a Disney Character! We'll have Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Anna, Elsa, and Kristof at Mosaic this Sunday! Plus- All kids will also get FREE CANDY!! We might even throw some candy out from the stage for all the adults. It's going to be a fun morning that you will not want to miss!
We are trying out a new thing: we are now recording a video podcast from Sunday's message. If you missed the message on Sunday or want to share it with a friend, you can check it our HERE.
This Saturday! 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!
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). We'll offer the nest Starting Point Class sometime in January. Sign up HERE
Sunday, November 6: 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! Have questions about baptism? Feel free to email me.
Operation Christmas Child
Every month our kid’s ministry raises money to put towards something that can tangibly help those that are in need. So far we have purchased through World Vision: A goat, a sheep, and four chickens. These animals go to some of the poorest places on the earth and allow families the gift of food, milk, cheese and provision. (www.worldvision.org) The kids are very proud of raising money and being able to help those that are in need!
This past month we started raising money for Operation Christmas Child (shoebox ministry). We are hoping to pack at least 5 shoeboxes from Mosaic Kids. All of the offering from this past month until November 13th will be put towards packing these shoeboxes for kids who might not otherwise receive any Christmas presents. You can check out this video for more information.
We will be putting together these shoeboxes on November 13th during both of the services. We wanted to give you the opportunity to donate supplies for the shoeboxes over the next 3 weeks. We will have a big rubber bin that you can put brand new supplies in if you would rather contribute in that way (must be in a new store-bought package, or tags still in place.) We are SO excited to be able to be a part of this amazing ministry that Operation Christmas Child offers. What a blessing to teach our kids that it is truly more blessed to give than receive! The age group that we will be targeting is a 2nd grade girl and boy, and 4th grade girl and boy. You can find ideas here- www.samaritanspurse.org If you have any questions please email our Children's Ministry Director at Beth@mymosaicchurch.com
Thanks friends! Have a great rest of your week! See you on Sunday!
