Weekly Update 10/30/11 Halloween Week
This week a lot is happening at Mosaic, of course that seems to be the norm. Let me just mention a few for this Halloween week.
Tomorrow the message at Mosaic will be part 2 of Discovering Jesus in Contemporary Culture. The theme of this week, following the Halloween theme is Finding Jesus in Horror. This will be a kind of kick off service of this format and you will see how a sermon comes about specifically from the television series, Dexter. While there may be those who are critical, I think most will be surprised.
This has been a busy week and weekend for me. Last week was the showing of my film The Long Walk at the Tallgrass Film Festival, I want to thank everyone who came out for the showing. On Monday morning I left for Tulsa to cover for Hollywood Jesus the film Home Run. While there I met representatives from various agencies including The Dove Foundation, Focus on the Family, and numerous others including John Baker, the creator of Celebrate Recovery. It was a blessing to get to be on the set of the film being made as well as spending time with others covering the film. The discussions with Mr. Baker were really quite interesting and the opportunity to visit a Celebrate Recovery meeting in Tulsa was quite enjoyable.
This week at Mosaic we start a new venture. Starting on Tuesday, November 1st we start providing overnight shelter services for homeless women. We still need 2 twin beds for the staff as we currently have cots for the women staying in the shelter. We are also in need of food for the shelter, including presweetened cereal, powdered milk, coffee, sugar, and other items for breakfast. We are also still in need of volunteers, especially women volunteers to help out on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Be in prayer as we provide these services.
This Monday, is Halloween, and as many likely already know, The Fox 104.5 FM Radio took on Mosaic as an organization to help out as they present their Classic Horror, Classic Rock event. They will be showing 2 movies The Shining and Halloween at The Forum Theater, located at 147 S. Hillside starting at 7 PM. There is a recommended donation of $10 of which all proceeds go to Mosaic.
I also want to remind everyone on the vision team, we will be meeting, next week at 12 Noon to discuss various plans and activities regarding growth and other agenda items.
Please help spread the word about Mosaic we need you, and we need to grow. We specifically continue to have needs with youth and worship so be in prayer regarding those things as we try to develop them and seek God’s wisdom and help in those areas.
