What a week it is at Mosaic! We’ve been seeing God move with people in amazing ways during the 80 hours of prayer and Bible reading through The Washing. With less than 24 hours to go, let me invite you to join in one of the two remaining timeslots that Mosaic has promised to fill:
- TONIGHT (Wednesday, May 3), Mosaic is responsible to field a prayer and reading team from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
- TOMORROW, the National Day of Prayer (Thursday, May 4), we are responsible to cover the last shift from 4:00-6:00 m. We will need multiple readers and certainly fervent pray-ers. Yes, it’s early. But what better way to start a day than praying meeting with God together.
Come and experience the amazing presence of God as we bless our city with prayer and the Word.
So here are the “ABCs” of this really full week:
A—Art Walk: This Friday evening, May 5th, from 5:00-8:00 p.m., Mosaic will be participating in Spokane’s “First Friday Art Walk.” We’re one of over 40 different venues that will have art in downtown Spokane. Ours will be an “art silent auction” where people can purchase the art on sale and some of the items will benefit our Mosaic Center building fund. Our display will feature some of our own artists, photographers and musicians (Thomas Becker, Harold Coleman, Deborah and Ian Pettus. Andrew & Katie Repsold). So plan to come downtown this Friday night, walk the town, visit some art studios, bid on some art and enjoy great live music at The Mosaic Center.
B—Bloomsday: Don’t forget that the presence of Bloomsday is changing our weekend worship schedule significantly. We’re all coming together on Saturday night from 5:00-7:00 p.m. for worship with our Changing Lives at 5:00 and fellowship around a “carb-loading spaghetti dinner” at 6:00 p.m. If you have never been to Changing Lives, I can’t think of a better time to come and watch God at work with this amazing ministry. There will be child care for ages 0-5 only. Families are encouraged to attend together and we suggest that you prep your younger children to hear some life-changing, redemptive stories of people who have been rescued from darkness and brought into the Kingdom of Light.
C—Center Dedication: while our actual dedication doesn’t take place until Friday, May 19th at both 5:00 and 7:00 p.m., we need to be inviting our friends, neighbors and relatives NOW. When you are at Mosaic Center this weekend sometime, grab enough mailer invitations to send to those you wish to invite. If you address them and add a personal note of greeting, we will be glad to mail them for you any time before May 15th. The earlier the better. So start making your invitation list now so everyone can see the amazing things God is doing downtown! And reserve some time on your calendar Saturday, May 13th, to do final projects at Mosaic Center before our big event.
D—Dessert with Pastors: This Sunday, May 7th, you’re invited to come spend a little time with your pastoral staff at the Repsold’s home (3205 E. Marie Ct.—at the corner of 42nd and Ray on the South Hill) from 6:00-7:30 p.m. This is an informal time of fellowship where you are are free to ask any questions you may have about Mosaic and your staff as you get to know your pastors in their “natural habitat.”
Remember, there are NO REGULAR SUNDAY SERVICES this Sunday due to the Bloomsday run. So plan to worship together on Saturday night at 5:00 p.m. this week at Changing Lives.
Running the really important race with you,
