Make a Gratitude Video

Over and over in Scripture, we see God instruct his people to “remember”: to create a marker or celebrate the ways that he shows up, provides, and comes through. We know that as a community this is one of the gifts we give each other – telling stories of who God is and how he is present with us. 

For the Thanksgiving Celebration on November 22, we are collecting and compiling these stories from our church family to share!

You’re invited to take a couple minutes and film a short, 10-15 second video by yourself, with your family, roommate, or friends.

Answer the prompt: “I have experienced God’s faithfulness through _________ .”

Mosaic Sunday’s with Shepherd’s Door

Sundays starting September 13
Portland Rescue Mission: Shepherd’s Door
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
 
 
The Mosaic family has the incredible opportunity to integrate the women and children of Shepherd’s Door into the life of our church during this season. Shepherd’s Door, a ministry of Portland Rescue Mission, is a one-year, Christ-centered, residential recovery community of about 35 women and 15 children (ages 10 and under). Through Shepherd’s Door, women and women with children who have suffered from homelessness, addiction, and other life traumas find refuge, restoration, and healing.

We dream of meaningful and encouraging relationships that breathe life into these women and children, as they experience transformation through Jesus and community.

Individuals, families, and House Gatherings are invited to join the Mosaic Virtual All-Church Worship Gathering at Shepherd’s Door and then participate in and/or facilitate small group discussions with the women of Shepherd’s Door as a House Gathering. Additional opportunities will exist to participate in the 9:30 am Mosaic Kids Sunday Story with families and provide kids programming throughout the morning.

For more information or to get involved, email Kim.

Be the Bridge 101

Be the Bridge 101 Group

Thursdays, October 22 – December 3
Hosted by CJ Martin & Denise Palke | Zoom
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

$10 (scholarships available)

The journey toward racial unity is not an easy process. Diving into the unknown can be daunting and it takes courage to move toward what is uncomfortable. Many of us look around and see that our communities are more divided than ever. Things feel stuck, and we want to do something. We have read the Bible and we have prayed for unity. But how do we, as the Body of Christ, actually become one?

Be the Bridge 101 is a six-week study for people wanting to pursue the conversation on race and racism with others who are following Jesus. Come with a willingness to engage with sometimes uncomfortable material on this life-changing topic and know that there will be grace-filled listening and learning. Our vision is to become more courageous and resilient disciples as we grapple with God’s vision for us within the church and within our city.
