The more things stay the same the more they change?
Mosaic Fellowship and Kenton are continuing to pray about God’s will for the future and how our two congregations can impact our world for the sake of Jesus.
At a meeting with some leadership from both congregations various dreams and visions were set forth but no timeline, money, or the other myriad of details were on the table.

Adam is using Kenton on Tuesday mornings for a discipleship group with some of their church’s men and we will be getting together for coffee to do further discussing after I get back from Hawai’i.
At the same time a group called “Do Good Multnomah” is looking for two nightly homeless shelters. One in North Portland and one in St. Johns. Chris Aiosa is the Executive Director for the group who has been working in these shelters with homeless vets for a few years.
As I wrote the previous sentence I had to break to meet with a group to look at our facility. It took no time for them to say, we could only be used for emergency winter housing. That is because the gym has no ADA egress.
But, it underlines for me that God has a place for Kenton that will continue to touch and impact our membership, our community, and those outside of our neighborhood. Grab me after worship for any questions and thoughts on this matter.
Kenton Bazaar November 3
Our Annual Bazaar will need some help for setting up and tearing down. Please see Judy McCourtney for when you are needed.
Once again, we will be serving a lunch for those interested…
Join us Saturday, October 27 at 9 am as we prepare 75 lunches for the homeless.
This month we include not only the healthy lunch but also Halloween candy for their enjoyment. The items needed is on the bulletin board by the sanctuary or you may call Sharon Marr and ask her. We’d love to have new people come and help assemble the lunches and even help with distributing them. We try to get started at 9 am and usually have the lunches assembled by 10:30.
