Mosaic Wichita

Prior to the basic updates, I want to remind everyone, you can visit the web site, to see and hear all of the bands that are coming to the church. We have had various people check out the MySpace page and our regular web page at It is nice to know that people are noticing. We have a number of things going on, including the new "Cluck Cluck" ministry. It is amazing at how people in the surrounding areas have supported this concept up to this point. We hope that this little ministry can be something that not only brings us together, but has us helping out those we know in the community who may be doing without.

Here are some upcoming Mosaic Events for the week starting for tonight.

Tonight, Wednesday, March 18, 2009 several things are going on at Mosaic.

Bob Harrell has completed the one sign for the church and he will be there at 6 PM this evening to hang the sign. We will need some help for that and anyone wanting to help with this, please show up.

Also tonight at 6 – 7 PM will be worship practice. Anyone wanting to show up for that should be there promptly, and ready to go at 6 PM or as soon thereafter as possible.

Tonight at 7 PM – 8 PM Bible Study, we will be going through John 5. We have been pretty good with this study, not going over and staying focused. Bring your Bible if you have one, if you don’t we have one available.

Thursday 6:30 PM At Pastor Mike’s House at 5410 Annapolis Avenue, Clearwater 67027 (620-545-7029. This is new but we will be having our chicks, chickens, and turkeys arriving at the house on Thursday afternoon. For those taking part in the “Cluck Cluck Ministry” (Mary Jane’s Title) please be here to help get things finished up. We will also be setting up criteria for who wants to participate in providing feed, straw, and upkeep needs and initial cost of set up. Also as a part of this will be discussion as to who gets to participate in the initial distribution of eggs, and meat, and how we distribute meat and eggs to the poor.

Friday at 6:30 PM we will have Worship Team Practice and Broken Pieces Small Group. If interested in being a part of the worship experience come on out. We still need a solid Worship Leader who can work with me regarding the vision for Mosaic, this will include a focus on quality and contemporary or innovative worship aspects and techniques.

Sunday, Pot-Luck and Discussion and Decision making as to ministry for the poor and outreach efforts of Mosaic. We will be concluding the initial phase of the Contagious Christian series, prior to going on to teachings on becoming a Contagious Christian and living out your faith. In the meeting on Sunday, we will discuss various ministry options regarding getting ready to become a Contagious Church. We will discuss what specific 1st step we will be taking to get the church ready, and specifically the areas of ministry (2 of them to start) that we will start in order to provide ministry to the community. For those receiving this, note that we have noted the emphasis Jesus placed on ministry to the poor and needy. Jesus spoke over 200 times related to this, and in the Bible it addresses this need over 2,000 times. We want to be a church that follows the mandates of scripture.

Also beware that we will have a special speaker, Kasey Reusser on Sunday March 29. We want everyone to show up to come hear Kasey. He is a good friend and a loyal brother. He also believes in and is very aware of the ministry of Mosaic. Kasey is a Ministerial Student at Word of Life and I personally look forward to hearing him speak.

The following is the current calendar for the church regarding concerts and so forth. We encourage individuals to participate and note, not all concerts are “Christian” concerts. We believe in the concept of seed planting and it has been clear that this ministry has not only been an effective ministry to individuals but to the bands. We have several special needs in particular to some of the concerts to point out so please note those and indicate if you can help with these needs.

24 – The Great Transparency from – Columbus Ohio Free, Donations, let’s pack the house for these guys who needed a place to play and stay. We need a place for these guys to stay, and to provide them at least 1 meal, dinner, and possibly 2 meals, including the breakfast. While we could make this a camp out at the church if need be, a home would be great for the guys. If willing to donate a place to stay, or food, please let me know as soon as possible. Also invite all you know for this show, we will take up a collection to give the guys for their efforts.

3 – Friday, First Friday with Jeremiah Foundation Free Donations Go To The Band This could be a big event, Jason has been sick so let’s let him know how much we appreciate him by showing up for this concert. Also we need someone willing to provide drinks and a meal for these guys, pizza or anything like that would be great. This is also a donation show. Jason has given so much to Mosaic, let’s be there to give back to him.

23 – Thursday, Stars Go Dim, (Formerly Pillar), Special Guests Lost Colors formerly Mile Marker 128, 8 PM $10 and This is going to be a great concert. We will need food for the bands, plus lot’s of help. I will ask for 5 people, 2 to help set up, and security, 1 ticket keeper, 1 concession stand, 1 person in charge of food and drink for the bands.

1 – Friday, First Friday, Hip Hop Show with Lippin Off, Opening will be Rap Artist Kingstum $5 This is another big 1st Friday event, and is not a Christian concert. This will be our first Hip Hop show as we try to reach out to various communities. We need people who can be here to serve, also provide meals, drinks, and basic help such as tickets, concessions. I would even ask that for the 1st Friday events we consider having alternative forms of outreach available during this time.

28 – Thursday, Harder to Fall, 8 PM $5 This is a hardcore show where we will need a place for the guys to stay, plus meals and drinks for them.

2 – Tuesday, Hardcore show with, A Fall To Rewind and Show Me The Sky 8 PM, $8 From Colorado We will need the basics and food for these two bands on this night. It should be a great show, and as with groups like this, it would be nice to be able to offer them a place to stay

19, Friday, Shel, 8 PM $6 from Colorado and This is a show that is already getting some talk from individuals in the community. This all female band is tremendous and has been receiving rave reviews. They are in town for several shows. We are looking for other venues for them to play at and places to stay, and help feeding them while they are here. They will be here for the entire week.

We are also looking at the following and request you to look at this information:

We are wanting to do A Festival for the Homeless in Wichita, see ideas and thoughts below:

June 20 – 24 (Shel is Still available) Homeless Festival on one of the following days. I am looking at possibly Sunday June 21 for the festival to take advantage of Shel and other bands in the area. Hopefully we can get a location near midtown or Oldtown for the event.

We will be talking more about this on Sunday, and then we will be making the final decision regarding the event. It is an event I believe we can work with various mid-town locations and churches in the area to help out at. We want it to be not only an event for the homeless, but one that provides information as to services, but also provides services such as providing socks, washing and massaging feet or back massages, washing or cutting hair, things of that nature.
