  • 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.

    Mosaic Kids

    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.

Their favorite things to do in the city is riding bikes by the Art Museum, swimming in the amazing public pools, and hiking along the trails in the Wissahickon. Melissa also enjoys running by the Schuylkill and cooking, everything from the comfort Korean food she grew up eating to insanely fast and delicious Instant Pot recipes, for her friends and loved ones. Melissa has a huge heart for teaching mindfulness and social justice to children.

She first moved to Philly back in 2006, left for medical school in 2009, and finally moved back for residency in pediatrics in 2014. Despite the academic nature of her introduction to the city, Charlene’s biggest priority and number one goal once becoming a Philly resident was fulfilled in 2007 when she met Boyz II Men. Aside from baking and stellar music, Charlene also loves football, college basketball, the arts, and Philly’s food scene.

Jim enjoys ice cream, being outside on sunny days, games like Ticket to Ride, and, more recently, the nightly "bath bath."

    Brieanna Wheeland

    Brieanna is a mom, attorney, wifey, friend and small group leader who has lived in Philly and been a part of Mosaic since 2009. She's dedicated and even a little stubborn at times.

Before living in Philly, Brieanna and her husband lived in Taiwan teaching English. These days you can find them (and their precocious daughter) in the Cedar Park neighborhood.
