Prayer and Worship Service On Sunday
Greetings on the weekly Mosaic Newsletter and update, while a little later than usual this week, it is still coming out despite a lot going on this last week.
As many know we are making progress in moving forward and receiving funding for the church and various individuals, (including me) by offering and providing an emergency overnight shelter for homeless women in Wichita. This program will run from November 1 – April 1. These last few weeks has involved a lot of work in trying to finalize the plans including the hiring of a staff to oversee this facility. The program will have very little impact on the day to day activities of the church. Keep this in prayer, while there are some who have taken issue at times with the homeless program, it is providing some financial help for 4 individuals plus providing a needed area of ministry which Jesus calls us to. There are still some concerns here and the prayers are greatly needed to lift this area of ministry up.
Also be in prayer as we look at expanding our ministry in the area of youth. Buckey has taken leadership in this and we want this part of our church to grow, the adjunct of a youth program will assist as we outreach to others. I met with several individuals this week about their involvement at Mosaic and they were interested in the particular area of youth, we need help here and we want to start reaching out to families with children.
Worship is also something we need to explore. We need a worship leader and musicians who are interested in assisting our church and bringing us to a place of legitimate worship. We need people who are dedicated and willing to promote the concepts of worship, plus stick it out and endure. We want to enter a place where God works each and every week.
A lot is coming up at Mosaic, we have a number of things regarding ministry during the holidays and we want those who believe in the ministry God has called each church to, (working with and ministering to the poor) to realize they are welcome at Mosaic. So many seem to ignore the call Jesus places on his followers to serve. We are more caught up with being served, than we are serving, yet he calls all of us who say we are his followers to serve. He reminds us that the last will be first. That isn’t to say we don’t give ourselves the attention we need, but the attention and growth we go through are to assist us in reaching the world around us. It is only as we are complete in doing the work we are called to do that we will find a place of peace. In finding that place, in doing that work, we need each other.
In closing, don’t forget that tonight, (Saturday) from 5 PM – 10 PM the youth along with various adults will be providing a Parent’s Night Out. During this time there is a suggested donation of $4 an hour and $2 for each additional child. This is a suggested donation and no child will be turned away. There are refreshments, games, drink and more provided during this time. You are invited to drop your children off starting at 5 PM and enjoy the evening. All proceeds from this go to support upcoming youth activities. Donations above the suggested donation are welcome,
Now I hope to see each of you this Sunday as we will be spending the service in Worship and Prayer. We will be having various sessions of prayer for individual needs, our church, and our city, nation, and world. Come prepared to share, worship, and pray.
Teaching time will start at 9:30 when we will be discussing the question: Was Jesus Married and will he be in the future? The discussion last week got a little active and we have been having a good group attending during this time, last week, around 18 attended so come on out during the church teaching and Sunday School time at 9:30.
Now if you are receiving this via some other form than email, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the church email list where you will receive a copy of the bulletin along with the newsletter.
Until later, God bless,
