Greetings and Salutations to you all,

It's already Friday, and I can hardly believe how quickly this week has gone by.

Tomorrow which, yes is Saturday, we're back to meeting at 5pm at our place. Seeing that sharing food together is a big part of community, please bring enough food for yourselves and to share with others: a main course and side dish or desert usually works, and if you have some drinks kicking around feel free to bring some along.

Feel free to invite a friend if you'd like to our time together.

This week we would like everyone to bring a gift to share with us. It may be a story, a song you've written, a poem, something you've learned from your Bible Study or devotional time and such. It's always cool to see how the H.S. weaves it all together and speaks to us the same message in all kinds of creative ways.

A reminder that if you haven't signed up for the MOSAIC website to do so. The site is You'll get regular posts with blogs, stories, upcoming events and gatherings, resources, and such.

Have a great weekend,

Tim and Esther

Change of Meeting TIme For This Week

Hey Everyone,

It sounds like for this weekend it would be better for us to gather on Sunday morning rather than Saturday night...this is one of the advantages of simple church...we can be flexible!

So let's meet Sunday morning at 10:30am. If you want to stay for lunch bring enough food to share and you're welcome to stay.

Let us know if you got this message and if you're planning to come on Sunday or not. Our theme will be "Where do I need to Grow this Year!"

Have a great weekend,

Tim and Esther

Where and How Do I Need to Grow this Year?

Hope all of you have had a good week, survived the cold, and that you're back in the swing of things.

At last Saturday's gathering we took some time to wait on God, and listen for one word that would describe what this New Year has in store for us. Here are some of the words for those of you who couldn't make it:

  • HOPE
  • "ON THE WING" with a picture of gliding, soaring like an eagle catching the thermals
  • CONVERGENCE - a coming together of what has been disconnected or disjointed

What we'd like to do this Saturday evening is to talk about what the personal application of these words are for each one of us. These words are invitations from God, but require a response on our part. What practical ways are we to live out these words? Another way to say this would be framed around the question: Where do I need to grow this year? We'll look at a few Scriptures that talk about "How to Grow Up in Jesus and What keeps us from Growing up and How can we help each other grow in Jesus?"

We'll start again at 5pm this Saturday evening with potluck, so please bring a main dish and side dish to share with everyone.,

We'd like to encourage you all to go to the and sign up to receive e-mails with regular blogs, stories, upcoming events, and so on from the collective of communities that are part of the Mosaic. It is real easy to do. Just look for the box that asks for your e-mail address, name, and click on submit.

A Happy New Year to You All,

This Saturday evening we are planning for a deer roast dinner at our house at 5pm. We'll be supplying the deer roast, so if everyone could bring a side dish of say rice, potatoes, or soup, and a salad or desert to add to the feast that would be great. We need to know who is coming so PLEASE PHONE OR E-MAIL TO LET US KNOW, SO WE CAN PLAN HOW MANY ROASTS TO PREPARE!

After the meal, we plan to have a time of waiting on the Lord to see what He wants to say to us about the New Year and then close with a time of communion and prayer for one another.

Earlier in the afternoon we will be having the first Mosaic Ministries board meeting, and one of the board members from Three Hills, Don Maxwell and possibly his wife Shestin, will be joining us for our gathering. We would appreciate your prayers for our meeting that afternoon as we embark on this new adventure. We only want to do what the Father is more and no less. Pray for unity, creativity, and a comraderie as we learn how to work together.


Tim and Esther
