In September, at Mosaic, we began to explore a different rhythm. All year we’ve held high the Message, Life Together and the Common Good and we wanted to see how we could support these ideals even more in our community.
We began the month with the Message. Kevin started a series on Courage and if you missed hearing him live, you can check out the podcast and get caught up.
We dedicated the third Sunday in September to the Common Good. Our community came together to make blessing bags for the homeless. We filled these bags with water, socks, personal hygiene items and a granola bar. Kids Mosaic joined us and we also made cards for each bag. We then challenged our community to take several bags and pass them out to the homeless people they see each week. It was a great day of sharing and serving.
The fifth Sunday was dedicated to sharing a Mosaic Story. This week we heard from Nikki Knox. If you missed her story, you can check it out on the podcast. It was awesome to see the world of Mosaic through Nikki’s eyes.
Finally, we ended the month by celebrating with the Albany community at the Dinner with Albany event held by the city. They shut down Solano street, hung lights, and played music. There was an awesome set up for the kids and dinner tables were decorated in crazy and creative ways. We ate together and got to mingle with the city. We enjoyed being a part of the greater Albany community and we hope to join in the festivities again.
Mosaic has more exciting events coming in October so be sure to explore the website for dates and event information. We hope you had a chance to join us this month and we invite you to take part of our different rhythm as we continue to explore more possibilities in the months to come.
