Some weeks are better than others when it comes to fellowship. This week promises to be a great one!
Besides the five downtown residential building Dinners & Bible Studies Mosaic does Monday through Thursday, we have a special opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of the broader body of Christ in Spokane this Wednesday from 5:30-6:15 p.m. at “The Church at Planned Parenthood.” Our own Joanna Hyatt will be speaking at this month’s gathering at 123 E. Indiana (on-street parking is plentiful around there). Come prepared to worship, pray, share the love of Jesus and make a difference in Spokane for the life of thousands of unborn children and their parents.
Starting Thursday and running through Sunday, Changing Lives Campout will find several hundred people enjoying God’s great outdoors at Farragut State Park on Lake Pend Oreille and wonderful fellowship of God’s great people. Please keep all these dear brothers and sisters in your prayers as they seek to keep growing in Christ through this multi-church retreat.
Friday evening our youth will be gathering for fellowship at Alfred and (pregnant) Jewel's apartment at 7:00 p.m. Contact them at (509) 995-9445 or (618)294-1903 for more information and address.
Saturday morning our Men’s Connection will be gathering for breakfast at the HUB (212 S. Howard) at 8:00 a.m. For men of all ages, this is a tremendous time of fellowship and spiritual training as we will be talking about how to naturally and effectively share our faith in Jesus with our friends, family, neighbors, coworkers…and even strangers (who could become eternal family!).
Speaking of Saturday, due to the Changing Lives campout this weekend there will not be a Changing Lives Saturday evening service, dinner or groups.
Sunday morning we’ll once again enjoy a packed house (single service at 10:00 a.m.) for worshiping our amazing God. (While a bit tight last Sunday, wasn’t it wonderful to be worshiping side-by-side with so many of our Mosaic family? Unity does sometimes require being in the same space at the same time.) This Sunday’s study in the Word (Phil. 4:4-7) will be filled with LOTS of emotion: rejoicing, gentleness, thanksgiving, peace…and even a cure for anxiety. (Invite all your friends who have panic attacks…unless, perhaps, they don’t like crowds.)
And just in case all this isn’t satisfying your fellowship itch, then call a brother or sister and invite them to coffee. There is so much we can learn from just asking the right questions and listening to someone’s heart in the answers.
Loving the new summer,
