Join Urban Mosaic in bringing more LIGHT and LIFE this Christmas season!
Thanks to everyone who donated, we reached the goal of $50,000!
As we close the year, we celebrate the glimpses of hope that have carried us through this challenging season. We have seen LIGHT and LIFE breaking through in unexpected places!
As a team, we have been reflecting on the third verse of the great Christmas carol “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” which presents this wonderful attribute of Jesus: “Light and Life to all He brings.” We are clinging to and celebrating this truth this Christmas season!
Help us embody the light and life of Jesus for thousands of youth and children in 2021.
WHAT DOES LIGHT AND LIFE LOOK LIKE?
In the Light and Life Celebration, our goal is to raise $50,000 toward support for youth and kids in the following ways:
–Equipping a small community center to host classes for children, workshops for families and recreational activities for youth. $100 helps provide a uniform and access to programming for a youth for an entire year.
–Starting a mobile library so 1,800 kids and youth can have access to books in their own neighborhoods. $50 helps provide books and supplies for 5 kids.
–Launching mobile kitchens (like food trucks!) to employ and train community leaders to prepare nutritious food, providing families with high quality, healthy food at a low cost and also generating income to sustain the project.
Each food truck will cost about $5,000 to purchase and equip and we hope to launch up to four to serve all the communities where Urban Mosaic works.
These tangible initiatives represent glimpses of hope as communities continue to experience hardships caused by the pandemic and its ongoing effects. Thank you for joining in and being the hands and feet of Jesus for those who are in need this Christmas and for helping to sow hope for the year ahead.
In addition to responding concretely to the needs around us this Christmas, we also want to take time to reflect on the reason we have hope. Join us live on Facebook for Advent with Urban Mosaic @ 7pm CT (5pm MT/8pm ET) every Sunday evening and on Christmas Day.
