Want A Date?
O.K. I’m not asking you out on a “date.” But I do want to let you know about a few really special and meaningful DATES you may want to put on your schedule and grab someone to come along with you to enjoy them. Here they are in chronological order.
This THURSDAY, January 13th, there will be a BENEFIT CONCERT for the Ovens. Featuring a wonderful vocalist and musician Holly Starr, the concert begins at 7:00pm at 4th Memorial Church (2000 N. Standard). Cost is $7 at the door and all proceeds go to help Tami and the family stay in their home as they make the transition to life now without their husband/dad Rory.
This SUNDAY, January 16th, at 3:00pm there will be a special time of prayer for our AGROS NICARAGUA TEAM at Shadle Park Presbyterian Church (5508 N. Alberta St.). It will start with a POTLUCK (I love food-events), so bring your best cooking and then join the team as we prepare to launch them through prayer.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 22nd , Rex & Pat Menke are hosting an OPEN HOUSE at their new home near the Cheney-Medical Lake Exit off I-90 from 12-4pm. But this isn’t any ol’ open house. It’s an open house with a purpose: to give you opportunity to see if you would like to join a NEW “FILL GROUP” they will be hosting starting Monday, February 7th, at 6:30pm. They will be working from the book/DVD “The Bait of Satan.” While they live on the lake, this isn’t about fishing bait…unless you’re the succor-fish. These 12 life-changing lessons by John Bevere will deal with one of Satan’s most damaging snares which has hooked most of us at some time or another and is still damaging far too many today. You'll be challenged to dig into the wisdom of God and allow the Holy Spirit to dig deep into your soul, exposing the root reasons for wrong thinking and behaviors.
Directions to their home: Take Exit 270 (Cheney-Four Lakes), after exiting turn right on Four-Lakes/Medical Lake Rd., go about a mile and turn left on Silver Lake Road, then left again on Welcome Rd. Their house is 11019 S. Welcome Rd. on Granit Lake. Call 299-2638 if you get lost or want more detailed instructions.
Finally, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5th, at 5:00pm we will be enjoying the INTRODUCTORY DINNER for ALPHA 2011. Held at Second Space Gallery, you’ll not only find a terrific dinner in style but you will also have an opportunity to introduce your friends and relatives to The Alpha Course. Since this course is designed primarily with unchurched people in mind, we hope that you’ll be inviting people to Alpha from now until the cows come home (which could be a while since I don’t have any cows). If you want a relaxed environment, terrific food, great entertainment (you’re guaranteed to laugh with Kirk) and a genuinely open environment in which any question is fair game, I can’t think of a better time and place. Check out the “Alpha” link on our home page at www.mosaicspokane.com for details and to register.
That’s it for today. Hope you find room in your calendar for some great people time like this.
