Moss    

A time for women to gather together, study the Word, and spend time discussing and praying in their small groups. Small groups will remain the same for the year, so that relationships have time to develop and deepen.

What does a typical Wednesday morning look like?

If you have children, you can begin by dropping them off at the Moss Children's program in the Children's Hall (as early as 9:20). At 9:30, Moss begins. You will be greeted in the sanctuary with friendly faces and brunch. This is your time to catch up with friends and meet someone new!

Following brunch, there will be 1-2 songs for you to quiet your mind and your heart. You will then be led in the Word and will spend time in prayer and discussion with your tables. Tables are a small group of 8-10 women, led by mentor moms, who will walk through the year together, praying with one another, and opening up their hearts and lives to each other.

What will my children be doing while I am at Moss?

Children are taught and nurtured in an accompanying Moss Children's Program. They will spend time learning through lessons, crafts, music, and age-appropriate play.

What should I bring? What should I wear?

Bring your bible, your Moss notebook (You will get this at the first Moss gathering!), a pen, and a heart for worship, fellowship, and study.

Come as you are - HOWEVER you are comfortable...

If you want to squeeze Moss in before a workout, come in your workout attire. If you want to sleep an extra ten minutes, come in a hat and pjs. If you would like an excuse to wear something other than pjs and nursing tops, pull that dress out of the back of your closet and throw on some makeup! We want this to be a peaceful couple of hours in your day, and we are just happy to have you, however you would like to come!! (We'll have coffee waiting for you.)

Will I fit into Moss?

The short answer - YES!

The longer answer - EVERYONE is welcome at Moss.

Do you hope to develop stronger, deeper relationships with the other women at church? Do you hope to develop deeper, more prayer filled relationships with those around you? Do you wish you had more time to quiet your heart, soak up God's Word, and pray for His Word to open your heart? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should sign up for Moss.

We all learn from each other and we can all benefit from inter-generational relationships with the women in our church body. Join us as we meditate on Hebrews and grow in our relationship with God and with each other.

Why is this Wednesday morning gathering called Moss?

The primary purpose of moss is to benefit the forest. Moss forms a covering - a carpet - that helps to slow down and retain water which is important in reducing soil erosion and preventing water loss during dry periods. Moss also stops tree seeds from getting washed away, and because it is rich in nutrients, it also provides the perfect conditions for germination.

How cool is that! The primary purpose of moss is so that the forest will flourish in EVERY way. In the same way, the primary purpose of our Moss Ministry is so that the Body of Christ will flourish in EVERY way!

My prayer is that the Moss Ministry at All Saints will be a soft, welcoming, and nourishing place for all women to land each week. I pray that it will be a place where spiritual seeds have a chance to germinate and take root. I pray that, like moss, we will join together in the slowing, protecting, and covering of each other in friendship and love. For the good of the forest and the glory of God.
