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 rick 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.
What can you expect at a Wednesday morning gathering?
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.
