  • Church Life

    Small Groups

    Mosaic's small groups are at the heart of what we do as a church. They are the foremost place in which relationships are built and in which people connect with God through prayer, worship, service, generosity, and Bible study. People often find that they discover some of their passions and abilities in the midst of meeting with and working with their small groups.

     

    They meet throughout the week at various locations. For details, check our small groups section.

    MosaicKids!

    Mosaic Kids is committed to creating relevant programs for children of all ages to get know Jesus and themselves, as well as develop healthy relationships with others.  Our hope is that our children will embark on a journey of faith during their time with us, and we do this by providing a safe space for them to experience and learn about God in fun and engaging ways.  Our volunteers are dedicated to making sure that church becomes a highlight of the week for the children who are involved.
